      Because of Kop-Expansion: Are you referring to the A 5089 road directly behind the Kop, or the houses between Venmore and Hartnup Street including the church, or the general traffic capacities to transport a larger capacity of perhaps 70.000?

      Once you go over a designated point (which we’re currently just shy of with the extended capacity) you need to ensure there’s a direct link to the ground by way of a transport system which is typically rail, whether train/underground/tram.

      Other things will also be taken into account such as:

      1) Acoustics - if changes are made in design, the acoustics held within the ground are likely to change. For example - if we filled the corners in and linked up the stands for extra seats - the sound would travel differently and this is something we’ve been keen not to affect.

      2) What would be required to expand the Kop, road links would be required to be closed for any expansion along with the businesses in direct distance of the Kop, including two pubs at least that are often jammed on match days.

      A cost benefit analysis might rule out the overall benefit to the club of an expansion, yes you might get a few extra thousand seats but the amount of other work required such a traffic management etc. might outweigh the overall benefit.

      3) You would also likely see most hospitality options impacted in an expansion of the KD stand or the Kop which again would see a decrease in match day revenue which would need taking into account.

      Overall the main issue is transport though, until that could be accounted for we’re not doing any further expansion. Cost of bringing direct links will be fairly large and likely the club if the consider it would be looking at the council to share the cost I would imagine.

      ok, then to me not clear why not expanding kop or KD instead of Anfield Road Stand. But now it´s to late.

      The Anny road was the stand that was less complicated to extend and the one that made sense , the extra seats won’t be going to away fans

      At least no more complicated than destroying the road that gives the stadium its name  :D
      Of course offially the tickets from upper tier dont go to away fans, but for some matches with high away fans demand it does of course. In addition seats at kop will be always more attractive than at Anfield Road Stand. I think somehow a wrong strategic decision of club managment. They did not base their expansion plans on the ticket demand for the individual stands.

      ok, to me not totally clear why the club expands the stand of the away fans' stand instead of the stand of its own fans or Dalglish-Stand.

      Are there supporters who wish a Kop expansion?

      It won't happen

      Unless some travel infrastructure is built around the stadium it's hard to see anything else happening after this work.
      Apart from the buses after games you have to walk back to the city centre after European games

      Yep! Always takes 40-60 mins to get out of Liverpool when parked up.

      Unless they invent flying buses I agree that this will be the last expansion.

      We usually cut across from West Derby Rd to road past the Jolly Miller pub. Traffic always looks chocker block on the drive after the match.

      Great news this. Hopefully I can get my tickets back for the United and arsenal games.

      I've heard starting with 5k in the upper but I don't know if this is accurate

      Dear Supporter,



      We are preparing to partially open the new Anfield Road upper tier for the first time at the Manchester United fixture on December 17.  This is part of a phased opening programme of the new expanded Anfield Road Stand and is subject to an internal emergency conditions test managed in conjunction with Liverpool City Council and a public test event.



      For this important test event we are inviting you to take part on Monday 11th December which will feature a live Q&A with manager Jürgen Klopp.



      Timings:
      18:00 – Turnstiles open
      19:00 – Event Starts
      19:20 – Half Time
      19:30 – Second Half
      20:00 – Event Finishes



      This free event is an important part of the matchday preparation and the phased opening of the new Anfield Road Stand, which when complete will increase Anfield capacity from 54,000 to 61,000.



      During this event the aim is to test the building, systems and management plans and there will be times where you will be asked to cooperate in some important tests.  These include staying for the full duration of the event, using the welfare facilities, testing entry and exit procedures and a fire alarm evacuation at the end.



      The LFC Foundation will also be hosting a community match play on pitch activity and discounted refreshments will be available on the concourses.



      HOW TO BOOK TICKETS


      Tickets can be booked online from 9am Tuesday 5 December 2023 until 8am Monday 11 December 2023.

      Please only book tickets if you can attend.



      Please note any supporters who need accessible seating should book tickets in the Lower Tier only.



      PARKING


      Free parking is available to book, free of charge & subject to availability when booking your event ticket(s).
