Since last summer, work has been ongoing to renovate the Anfield Road Stand, demonstrating the ambition of FSG.
Recent images show the construction of Liverpool’s new Anfield Road Stand, with work moving along at a fantastic pace.
The Main Stand has already had a thorough renovation. And the next stage of the renovation of Anfield is progressing well under the ownership of Liverpool FSG.
Anfield Road renovation progress
The pandemic and a combination of planning concerns caused a delay in the project. But Liverpool City Council gave the go-ahead in June 2021 to expand the stand by 7,000 additional seats. Compared to the initial plans, which were just shy of 5,000.
In the absence of severe delays, the Anfield Road Stand should be accessible to the public at the start of the upcoming season.
Recent photos show how the work is progressing, and some interesting new innovations appear to be in store.
When the stand is complete, FSG will have spent about $73 million (£60 million/€67 million). However, it will increase Anfield’s total seating capacity to 61,000. And make it the third-largest stadium in the Premier League behind Old Trafford and Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and the fifth-largest in all of England.
The update, posted on Twitter by Craig Evans, shows excellent progress on the job site. The structure’s height has reached an astonishing 39 meters.
It is incredibly tantalizing to think of the club adding an additional 7,000 spectators to the stadium with the expansion in consideration.
We can only hope that Jurgen Klopp’s team can address the current problems on the field. So that the additional number of spectators welcomed the following year can experience more illustrious Champions League nights at L4.
Liverpool’s Anfield Road End stand renovation appears to be on track to be completed by the 2023–24 season.
