Liverpool Football Club today reaffirms its intention to redevelop the Anfield Road stand with ambitious new plans now under active consideration.
As part of this process, the six-time European champions have committed to engaging with the local community and other key stakeholders while pursuing a vision in keeping with the club’s aspirations.
As a direct result of this development, existing outline planning permission will be allowed to lapse in order to allow work to continue on alternative options with a view to submitting a new planning application for a larger scheme in due course.
Liverpool FC chief operating officer Andy Hughes said: “The progress that has been made during ongoing feasibility studies has resulted in us being in a position to allow the outline planning permission to lapse. We are committed to working with local residents, planning officials and others as we now focus on the detail behind any proposed redevelopment for Anfield Road.
“Throughout this process we have been clear that our objective is to find the best possible solution for Anfield Road and that remains the case."
I thought this was a financial no go due to the rail companies being tight, and there not being much money in general admission?
Seems like that wont be an issue now. I doubt we would start this process without knowing it can be done.
Good news. There's so much shit seating in the Annie road, so about time they created a modern and expanded stand.
It'll be mostly hospitality. You never know, we might even get a telly so people know what the fuck is going on when var kicks in.
Yeah. That "roof" blocking decent view if you sit in lower sections.
And at the back of the upper section. You have to stand on your seat and simultaneously crouch and twist your head to see over the next row, ignoring and casting evil looks at the persistently jobsworthy steward telling you to get down off your seat.
Hopefully they'll upgrade the Centenary stand too. Seats and legroom are worse than being on Ryanair
We need to be 60k+
When the revamp the centenary we'll all get moved. Noooooo
The only thing more important than this great news is making sure Kloppo does a David Moyes or an Alan Pardew by tying him down to a standard 30 year contract
Why would we need an expansion for that
Hopefully Anfield will eventually be more than 80+k capacity with all the upgrades, if possible to rival Manu.
That won’t happen. There just isn’t the land or infrastructure to expand that much.
I wouldn't be surprised if they offer to move a road slightly? Have this feeling we will see something radical, and surely the council have seen how great the main stand redevelopment has been?
I still think there is more chance of Anfield being 80,000 than Everton moving to Bramley Moor.
We're all mad, we're all round the bend ...
How many are on the season ticket waiting list. It's the corporate tickets that bring in the money, so I can see a massive expansion on these tickets. I have seen a few corporate tickets on sale over the past week at £300 each. city / spurs are making silly money on those tickets where you can see the players in the tunnels before a game
I would be surprised if the council is accommodating to any radical plans
With new technologies, new materials and new engineering methods, it should be possible to enlarge the capacity with present land area and a little bit more?
