The expansion of Anfield Road to be completed before the 2023-24 season?

The expansion of Anfield Road

The Scousers can see how the Anfield Road expansion project is progressing on the inside and out, 18 months after construction started. It will be completed in time for the start of the season, boosting the stadium’s capacity to 61,000.

According to Liverpool’s vice president of stadium operations, Paul Cuttill, the Anfield Road end expansion will likely be finished in time for the start of the 2023–24 Premier League season.

The Progress of the Anfield Road expansion

Incredible progress has already been done for the 7,000 more seats to be added in time for the 2023–24 season. The steel columns, beams, and main frame are now finished, and you can also see the beginning of the brickwork on the outer façade.

The 300-tonne truss and the 500-foot crawler cranes that conducted much of the hard lifting have since departed the construction site, and work on the new roof is going splendidly and can be seen for miles as it changes the metropolitan skyline. Even though the previous roof is still in place, it will be taken off during the off-season.

Liverpool’s vice president on the project

Paul Cuttill:

“It’s hard to believe we’re this far into the project, the progress that’s been made is remarkable.”

When plans to remove the old roof during the winter World Cup break were postponed, the next step of the renovation will stage its removal after the conclusion of the current season.

The quick progress means that, should everything go according to plan between now and the end of the summer, Liverpool won’t feel pressured to request that the Premier League stage their opening matches of the 2023–24 season away from Anfield, as was the case at the start of the 2016–17 season while they awaited the Main Stand project’s completion.

After the construction of the new Main Stand in 2016 and the debut of the cutting-edge AXA Training Center in November 2020, this is the third significant capital build project LFC has undertaken recently.
