Video: The origins of Liverpool FC

15 March 2017

LFC release a video to mark the 125th anniversary of the formation of Liverpool Football Club, on March 15, 1892.

The video explains the origins of the club, from its roots in 1871, to the newly formed Liverpool FC in 1892.

Club historian and museum curator, Stephen Done explains: “The evening of 15th March at Houlding’s home, Stanley House, a new club was proposed and given the name Liverpool Football Club and so began the plans to recruit new players and to formally enter the Football League. By 3rd June 1892, Liverpool Football Club was official.”

The Club will mark its official 125th birthday on 3rd June 2017 – the day the Club was officially recognised by the Board of Trade in 1892.

This year 125th birthday celebrations will be kicked off with the release of a special anniversary LFC crest which will be revealed on next season’s kit in April.
