Premier League Champions Liverpool on Tuesday unveiled new training centre after 70 years at Melwood.

A stunning state of the art ground has cost the club around £50m and finally opens its doors this week. 

As well as pristine pitches, the centre features tennis court, paddle tennis court, and beach volleyball courts, also a customised pool table and an indoor basketball court. 

Andy Hughes, LFC’s managing director, said, "We started this project over two years ago, marking a significant milestone in the history of this great football club. 

"After saying a fond farewell to Melwood last week, we are excited to start a new era at the club, bringing our first team and Academy operations and facilities together on one site for the first time in history. 

"There have been so many people involved in making this great project happen – it is impossible to thank them all as individuals. 

"Our first-team manager J├╝rgen Klopp, sporting director Michael Edwards and Academy director Alex Inglethorpe have been instrumental in turning plans into a reality. 

"We must also thank Knowsley Metropolitan Borough Council and local residents for their continued support throughout the delivery of this extended project. 

"Whilst we would have liked to have celebrated this historic moment together, ensuring public health, safety and wellbeing is our number one Priority."
 
Meanwhile, Klopp expressing excitement said, "Today is a really special day for the team – it has been a long time coming. 

"There has been a lot of steps, meetings with architects, designers, everybody. 

"The facility is great and whoever has the chance to visit will be impressed. 

"It is a wonderful building – you have everything you need now and for the future. It’s pretty much perfect."
