Eighteen months since work began on the Anfield Road in Liverpool, England (UK) expansion project – which will open in time for the next season, increasing stadium capacity to 61,000 – supporters can visualize how it is developing inside and out.

‘Liverpool FC’ stated that the new stand is shaping up – including the ground level, which will house the expansive fan park, and the three levels above, which will be home to the hospitality lounges and home and away fans.

The Anfield is a football stadium in Anfield, Liverpool, Merseyside, England (UK), which has a seating capacity of 53,394, making it the seventh largest football stadium in England. It has been the home of the Premier League club Liverpool F.C. since their formation in 1892.

The Liverpool Football Club is a professional football club based in Liverpool, England (UK). The club competes in the Premier League, the top tier of English football. Founded in 1892, the club joined the Football League the following year and has played its home games at Anfield since its formation.

‘Liverpool FC’ further stated that incredible progress has been made so far to add 7,000 more seats in time for the 2023-2024 seasons. The main frame is now complete – all steel frame, columns and beams – and alongside this one can also see the start of the exterior façade brickwork.

The 500 ft crawler cranes, which did a lot of the heavy lifting – including the 300-tonne truss – have now left the site and the new roof is progressing fantastically and can be seen for miles around as it alters the City skyline. The old roof is still in place and will be removed in the close-season.

Put in Paul Cuttill, Vice-President of Stadium Operations, Liverpool F.C., “It’s hard to believe we’re this far into the project, the progress that’s been made is remarkable. Even more remarkable considering we’ve managed to keep on track and continued to maintain full capacity at Anfield, holding over 50 games so far and three concerts in a working building site. This new footage is a great insight and shows how the expansion is shaping up on the inside and helps to bring it more to life for fans. It’s now full steam ahead to be ready for the 2023-2024 seasons. We can’t wait to have even more fans at Anfield, the atmosphere is going to be better than ever.”

This is the third major capital build project undertaken by the Liverpool F.C. in recent years, following the build of the new Main Stand in 2016, and the opening of the state-of-the-art AXA Training Centre in November 2020.
