    Liverpool reacquires Melwood for their women’s training facility

    Liverpool Women’s Team Buys Back Melwood Training Ground

    The Liverpool women’s team has made a significant move by buying back their old Melwood training ground for a reported £13 million. The club sold the ground to housing developer Torus in 2019 and moved to Kirkby in 2020.

    However, with this new purchase, the team can now look forward to having a designated space that befits their professional status as one of the biggest clubs in the world.

    Why This Move is Significant

    The decision to buy back Melwood shows Liverpool’s commitment towards their first-team and academy. Managing Director Andy Hughes stated that “now is the right time” for this move.

    This investment will not only benefit Liverpool’s women but also girls’ academy teams and community projects. It demonstrates how much importance Liverpool places on supporting young aspiring footballers from an early age through community outreach programs.

    A New Era Begins

    Ever since winning titles in 2013 and 2014, Liverpool has fallen behind its rivals in English women’s football. However, with this latest acquisition of land, they have taken another significant step forward towards reviving themselves as title contenders once again.

    In contrast to Klopp’s men who relocated entirely after selling Melwood two years ago; before settling into new premises at Kirkby last summer – sharing facilities temporarily with Tranmere Rovers’ Solar Campus – it had been unclear where would be home for The Reds’ ladies until now.

    Future Plans for Melwood

    The club plans to invest further in the facilities available at Melwood before the women’s team moves in well ahead of the 2023-24 WSL season. This move will enable Liverpool’s female squad to train and prepare for their matches together, creating a better sense of unity and camaraderie within the team.

    This new acquisition also means that Liverpool can continue playing home games at Tranmere’s Prenton Park stadium while using Melwood purely as a training facility.
