Melwood is the Liverpool FC training ground, located in the West Derby area of Liverpool. It is separate from the Liverpool Academy facility, which is based in Kirkby.
Melwood was redeveloped in the early 2000s with large input from then manager Gerard Houllier and now features some of the best facilities in Europe. It has been the club’s training ground since the 1950s and was previously transformed by Bill Shankly.
Facilities include three full-size synthetic pitches – one with the same dimensions as Anfield, one shorter, narrower pitch, and one longer, wider pitch – rehabilitation rooms, press and meeting rooms, a gymnasium, swimming pool, restaurant and recreational facilities.
