      Any idea the size of the waiting list for season tickets?

      The ST waiting list is something ridiculous like 50,000 - they closed it years ago, I’ve been on the list for about 15-16 years and I’m about 3500 on the list, I know they released some when the main stand was developed so I’m really hoping they will release some more if they do develop the Anfield Road as currently I never can get any in the members sale

      Liverpool plan Anfield Road End expansion to reach about 60,000 capacity.

      Liverpool have moved forward with plans to extend Anfield's capacity to about 60,000 by inviting local residents to attend public consultation events.

      The Premier League leaders hope to develop the stadium's Anfield Road End in a bid to build on the current capacity of 54,074.

      Over 5,000 leaflets have been distributed outlining consultation events from 29 November to 4 December.

      Liverpool completed the expansion of Anfield's Main Stand in 2016.

      The Main Stand development cost about £100m.

      Outline planning permission was also in place to redevelop the Anfield Road End of the ground.

      Those plans would have added a further 4,825 seats but in August the club chose to instead pursue "ambitious new plans", prompting the consultation process.

      "The consultation events are designed for local residents, businesses and fans to learn more and offer their feedback on the club's vision to create a bigger Anfield, which would allow more fans to watch some of Europe's best football in a world-class facility," the club said.

      Interested parties can attend consultation events at The Kop Bar from 16:00 GMT on Friday 29 November, Monday 2 December (16:00) and Tuesday 3 December (12:00).

      A pop-up information stand will also be open on Anfield Road before the games against Brighton on 30 November and Everton on 4 December.

      Good news but an extra 4,000 is a drop in the ocean compared to what's really needed. The members' sale this morning pretty much confirmed that we really need to be more around the 70,000 mark before supply can get anywhere near the demand.

      Either that, or another Hodgson era to clear a few bums off of the seats

      The original plans called for 4k seats, they scrapped those and are going bigger.

      New CGI image, I don't think I've seen it before, may be this will be close to the proposed design.


      LFC has opened a first-stage public consultation exercise to share early ideas for the proposed expansion of the Anfield Road Stand and to listen to the views from the local community, local businesses, supporters and key stakeholders. @LFC

      You've got to take your hat off to FSG if this gets pulled off. You look at these 60k+ seater stadiums being built now and they're all costing around the 1 Billion mark, we would have managed to get to that capacity for a fraction of the price, whilst also retaining our history, tradition and culture from by not moving into one of the shiny, soul-less spaceships that get passed as stadiums nowdays

      Just out of interest, how many extra seats do you reckon we would get if they filled in the top tier of the corner?

      You're right mate, £200m total including this isn't it? Chuck in £50m for Kirkby and they're doing well.

      Around that figure I think mate, it could even be a bit less. I think we'd still need to be nearer the 70k mark before we start meeting anywhere near the demand for tickets and I'm not sure we'd be able to reach that through expansion due to the location, but I'm more than happy with a 60k Anfield. Redevelopment makes it easier to compete on the field too as opposed to building a new ground, as we'll still have the funds for transfers & the likes. Arsenal are a prime example of how having a new stadium can hinder progress on the pitch

      As far as I can see on the news, extra 7000 seats, aiming at fans, not corporate.

      It mentions a lounge and/or sports bar and what I've seen of those is they are always aimed at the high end "customer."

      Great to increase capacity and I know that bar thing is meant to increase revenue, but I wish they'd just forget about hosting American or Gaelic football. It's terrible for the pitch.
