LIVERPOOL HAVE UNVEILED their exciting plans for the expansion of Anfield, which would lead to the stadium having a capacity of 54,000.
The changes revolve around the redevelopment of the Main Stand, adding 8,500 additional seats and taking its maximum capacity to almost 21,000. The work would also see the Main Stand opening onto a wide public concourse, linking to stadium to the wider Anfield Area.
LFC’s vision also includes boosting the capacity of the Anfield Road Stand by around 4,800 seats.
The club expects to submit a planning application to the Liverpool City Council during the summer, having revealed that negotiations with property owners in the vicinity are “close to agreement”.
Speaking about the project, Ian Ayre, Liverpool FC managing director, said:
“As part of our proposed stadium redevelopment project, we have unveiled the detail of our ambitious plans for an expanded Main Stand and Anfield Road stand and are embarking on a consultation process which will shape and inform our planning application.
“We started this journey just over 18 months ago and a lot of work has already been done, there is still an incredible amount to do, but good progress has been made so far and we are proud to be able to unveil our plans.”
