Football With History

As you’d expect with a football institution whose origins stretch back to 1892, Liverpool is a club steeped in history. One of its most important landmarks is the Sandon, nestling in the shadows of Anfield.

Originally owned by John Houlding MP – the first LFC president and ex-Lord Mayor of Liverpool – the Sandon holds a special place in LFC’s history. It was here that members of Everton used to meet up before their eventual switch to Goodison Park, leading to the formation of Liverpool FC. Interestingly, the premises were often used as changing rooms by both the Liverpool and Everton sides of the 1890s – the players walking through the crowds to the ground on matchdays.

Today, the Sandon is still revered by fans and remains a hugely popular location for a drink before the game. But as well as this, it offers excellent matchday hospitality in its newly refurbished function suites. Here guests can enjoy great food and friendly service, as well as savouring the famous pre-match atmosphere.

The Sandon is a unique and historic location to enjoy the company of friends and fellow LFC supporters. If you wish to make a booking for match day hospitality please contact Liverpool FC direct on 0151 264 2222 or visit
