Set for completion this Summer, the Premier League club Liverpool F.C.’s redeveloped Anfield Road (Liverpool, England, UK) stand has come on plenty.

‘THIS IS ANFIELD’ stated that with a new capacity crowd of 61,015, the top-flight’s home digs Anfield’s atmosphere could play a huge part in elevating Liverpool back to the lofty heights reached under Jürgen Klopp (Manager of Liverpool F.C.) until this season.

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.

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 Liverpool F.C. since their formation in 1892.

‘THIS IS ANFIELD’ further stated that the redevelopment of the Anfield Road end will add an extra 7,000 seats to the ground and sizeably boost the supporters cheering ‘The Reds’ on.

It has been over 18 months since work began on the project but it is nearing completion with every day that passes, with the opening scheduled for the start of next season.

External glasswork is now being fitted on the outside, while brickwork has started to be added to make the design more aesthetically pleasing and in symmetry with the Main Stand.

The concourses are also beginning to take shape. Their layouts are similar to those in the Main Stand and should provide panoramic views from the large windows.

Work on the new roof continues before the existing structure is removed in the Summer, with the truss alone weighing an astonishing 300 tonnes.

Last month, a group of local school children became the first to sit in the new stand, as the first seats were installed in the upper tier.

As part of the club’s plans, a new section for young adults will be created.

Of the 7,000 new seats, just 1,000 are to be for new season ticket holders, while 3,000 are ‘general admission’ and 1,800 for hospitality. It is unclear how the rest will be allocated.

The stand will also house away supporters, as well as a fan zone area on the ground floor concourse for families to enjoy.
