Anfield today became the latest ground to benefit from ACV status
Statement following the news that SD member, Spirit of Shankly has successfully applied to have Anfield listed as an Asset of Community Value.
SD's Head of England, Tom Hall, said:
"This is great news for Spirit of Shankly, the Supporters Trust Movement, and for Supporters Direct. Two of the great homes of fan culture, Old Trafford and Anfield, have joined Oxford United and Nuneaton Town's grounds in being protected. These successful listings are demonstrating that our premise that clubs and their stadiums should be seen as community assets and not simply as part of an investment portfolio is beginning to be accepted."
CAS Trust would like to congratulate Spirit of Shankly and indeed MUST on their successful applications. As predicted Asset of Community Value's growth continues in English football.
