For almost 70 years, Liverpool FC trained at the classic Melwood training ground, in the east of the city. But in 2020, the men's team moved to a newly expanded training facility northeast of town.

In recent years, Liverpool, which was a big club on the women's side at the beginning of the 10th century with double league victories in 2013-2014, has played in the second league. For this year's season, the team is back in the WSL, the highest league for women in England.

In recent years, according to the website, the club has been looking for a training facility for the ladies, as a step in establishing itself at the top again.

Now they announce that they are buying back the old facility Melwood, intended for the women's team.

"The time is right to make this move, and we are really delighted that we have taken the opportunity to return to Melwood and to begin a new chapter in Liverpool's commitment to our women's team and their academy," the club's deputy chief executive Andy Hughes told Liverpool's website.

Liverpool finished seventh in the WSL this year.
