Liverpool F.C. was formed 1892 by John Holding. Holding had been the leaseholder of Anfield stadium and purchased the ground outright in 1891. He then proposed a rent increase to Everton F.C., who were using the ground back then, from £100 to £250 per year. Everton refused and moved to Goodison Park. So Liverpool were formed and took their place at Anfield, beginning one of the oldest rivalries in English Football. Anfield is still the club's home and has a capacity of 45,276. Liverpool achieved success in a short space of time. They were elected to the Football League Second Division for the 1893-94 season. They ended the season as Second Division Champions, having gone unbeaten. They were then promoted to the First Division and won their first league title in 1900-01. The success continued until, after back to back league titles in 1921-22 and 1922-23, the club had its longest spell without a trophy between 1923 and 1947, when they again won the league title. In 1959 Liverpool appointed Bill Shankly and a new Golden Era for the club began. He led them back to top flight football in 1962, where they have been ever since, winning countless titles and trophies.
