#PLHistory #PremierLeagueStories on Jan 22 1993 – Major revamp of the Anfield going on – Liverpool CEO Peter Robinson

According to Liverpool CEO Peter Robinson, the demolition of Bill Shankly’s old boot room and the seating of the famous Kop were the only two features that were to remain at Anfield as the club infrastructure was undergoing a massive facelift.

He pointed out the moving of the training headquarters to Melwood, advance ticketing systems, parking facilities, club museum tours and catering services as just a few of the features that had been implemented. He also said that the capacity of the stadium was likely to reduce to 39000 from then 44000 as the club planned to make the stadium an all-seated ground as per the new premier league rules. As of summer 1994, all stadiums in the league had to have only seats and no standing places after the Hillsborough disaster.
