      During our first stage public consultation we shared our early ideas for extending the high quality public realm around the expanded Anfield Road Stand. The initial plans showed that whilst the majority of Anfield Road would remain open for residents and businesses, a short section of the road between Skerries Road and 96 Avenue would be permanently closed for vehicles, except for emergency services.

      Based on the feedback from some local residents and representatives through our first stage consultation, we will now reroute Anfield Road around the footprint of the expanded Anfield Road Stand.

      This means that access for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists will be retained on non-match days as currently occurs and a short-section of Anfield Road will be closed to vehicles on match and event days.

      This change to our plans is supported by detailed crowd modelling and specialist transport advice. It is also likely that realigning the road in this way would result in reduced volumes and speed of traffic using Anfield Road.

      Our current proposals for Anfield Road, including our ideas for the design and materials are shown on the images below. We are continuing to discuss details such as the materials for the road surface with Liverpool City Council and we are committed to a solution which ensures that this public space provides both visual and environmental benefits.

      LFC update on proposed expansion of Anfield Road stand

      Liverpool Football Club would like to update supporters on its proposed expansion of the Anfield Road stand.

      Project paused due to impact COVID-19 lockdown delays are having on the construction and build programme.

      The complex build must be completed between seasons and therefore the impact is at least a 12-month pause.

      Earliest target for project completion is summer 2023 (original target was summer 2022).

      The club began a two-stage consultation with local residents, groups and businesses, and supporters in November last year and aimed to submit its planning application in spring 2020.

      LFC said from the outset that for the expansion to go ahead it would need certainty on three key areas – agreement from the local neighbourhood that they will allow the expansion to proceed; a financial and economic model in place to deliver a long-term sustainable Anfield; and our ability to navigate the complex planning landscape.

      The proposed 18-month build schedule for the Anfield Road expansion project is similar to the Main Stand. It is a complex construction process which is highly dependent on a wide range of time-sensitive variables. These include procurement, construction, sub-contractors, supply chain and the football calendar to ensure minimal impact for supporters by having two summer windows to complete the project.

      On reviewing the delays that the COVID-19 pandemic has had, and will continue to have for the foreseeable future, coupled with the high levels of uncertainty in the construction industry, it is with regret that the club has paused its proposal to expand the Anfield Road stand for at least 12 months. The earliest target date for completion is now summer 2023.

      Liverpool FC’s chief operating officer, Andy Hughes, said: “We have experienced a number of delays to the planned project as a direct result of the COVID-19 lockdown. Given the challenges that many sectors are facing right now, including the construction, procurement and public sectors, we are taking a responsible approach to pause the project for at least 12 months.

      “The complex build programme for Anfield Road is an 18-month process and needs two clear summer closed season windows in order for it to be successful. This is why we are pausing on the project for at least 12 months so the earliest we could complete the programme is summer 2023 rather than summer 2022 as originally planned. Given the planning application is no longer time-critical, it is our intention to submit our planning application at some stage during the next 12 months.

      “We will use this period to review and consider options. When the football calendar and the wider delays to the construction and supply chain industries begin to plateau, we will provide further updates.

      “We understand this is disappointing for many, as it is for us, but would like to thank all our key stakeholders, including local neighbours in Anfield, our supporters, the City Council and others for their great cooperation in the pre-planning stages.

      “Our priority remains on the health and wellbeing of our people, the local community and supporters at this challenging time. Our thoughts are with all those affected by COVID-19.”

      Horrific. Wonder how many general admission tickets they've sacrificed for that monstrosity - reckon you could fit another 20 or so seats there instead!

      Holy f**k, it looks like an inflatable !
      Like their on pitch ambitions really. Over inflated.

      It's clear this is only being done to increase the value of the asset and profit more from the LFC cash cow ;)

      Will this increase capacity for next season given that you can make the spaces between rows narrower?

      Ah no, I was thinking of what happens at Dortmund. Rail seating and safe standing are different.

      I am just wondering if the pigs ear of the Anfield Rd End of the New Main Stand will be sorted with the new ARE Stand. Was it planned all along?

      Yep, will add around 7000 new seats. Which should bring in a year's revenue that would pay about two weeks of Haaland's wages? :D

      I genuinely get very excited when I see Anfield getting expanded and redesigned in the process. Topping up an already legendary venue. Anfield on steroids. I think the changes to the Road End will appear even greater than the Main Stand. It's very much the odd one out at the moment! Anfield will look completely brilliant by the end of it all.
