Liverpool’s Anfield expansion plans go to second-stage consultation

Date published: Wednesday 12th February 2020 12:19

The second-stage public consultation of the proposed expansion of Liverpool’s Anfield home has begun on Wednesday.

The Premier League leaders are planning to add 7,000 seats to the Anfield Road area of the ground which would lift the stadium’s capacity to 61,000. That would make Anfield the third largest stadium in the Premier League behind Manchester United and Tottenham.

The club have invited fans, local residents and businesses to review the club’s updated plans, which have been remapped after feedback in December.

The club say the number of general admission seats within the stand would be 5,200, with around 1,800 “lounge/sports bar-style hospitality”.

Andy Hughes, chief operating officer told the club’s website: “The feedback of our local residents has been essential to the planning process of this proposed expansion.

 

 

 

“We have been very clear from the start that we will only proceed with this project if we have their co-operation, we have a financial model which offers economic stability and we can navigate the complex planning landscape.

“These updated plans reflect that we have listened and we thank all of those people who took the time to share their views with us in the initial stage of this process and look forward to more thoughts on the updates we have made.”

The second stage of public consultation will take place at Anfield between February 12 and 24, and will end midnight on Friday February 28.
