Liverpool FC was granted temporary permission by Liverpool City Council in September of this year to host concerts at Anfield over the next 2 years and it seems they are keen to also expand the use of their stadium to other sports.

It makes strong commercial sense to take advantage of the stadium in this way, especially in the off season. Rivals Manchester City have long benefited from the extra revenue generated by stadium tours hosted there in the Summer. 

Having hosted England's second Test against New Zealand in the 2018 series last month it seems Anfield is now also building itself a reputation as a Rugby League destination.
