Anfield Road Expansion Update: Stunning footage of £80m development

Liverpool have revealed stunning footage of the proposed Anfield expansion development project.

It has been 10 months since work began on the Anfield Road Stand redevelopment to increase capacity at Anfield to 61,000.

The expansion will be the third major project undertaken during the FSG era alongside the £110m Main Stand increase in 2016 and the opening of the £50m AXA Training Centre in November of 2020.

Liverpool’s managing director Andy Hughes said back in March that the expansion of the Anfield Road stand is proof of FSG’s desire to keep the Reds functioning as a self-sustainable business at the elite end of football.

The expansion takes a big leap forward this weekend as its 300 tonne roof will be hoisted into place.

Two huge 600-tonne cranes will ease the structure into place over the course of a 12 hour period on Sunday.

Plans to take the capacity of the famous stadium up to 61,000 is currently on track for the 2023/24 season.

Liverpool’s managing director, Andy Hughes, claimed back in March that this expansion is evidence of FSG’s desire to keep Liverpool as a self-sustainable business as an elite club.
