      Annie road test event
      Aug 14, 2023 01:34:46 pm
      Anfield is gearing up for its first game of the season. As part of the phased opening of the new expanded Anfield Road Stand, there will be numerous test events.


      The first will be on Tuesday August 15 and Liverpool FC season ticket holders and members are invited to take part. Tickets are free of charge and will be available on a first come, first served basis.

      This 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’s 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 attendees will be asked to co-operate 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.

      LFC Foundation will be hosting a community match play-on-pitch activity throughout and discounted refreshments will be available on the concourse.

      Here is all the information you need to know ahead of the event.

      Timings (BST)
      6pm - Turnstiles open
      7pm - Event starts
      7.20pm - Half-time
      7.40pm - Second half
      8pm - Event finishes
      How to book tickets
      Season ticket holders, seasonal hospitality members and Official Members can book tickets free of charge online now.

      Eligible supporters can book FOUR tickets per Supporter ID.

      Tickets are available on a first come, first served basis and we cannot guarantee tickets to all who apply. Seats will be unreserved.

      Parking
      Parking is available to book free of charge and subject to availability when booking your event ticket(s).

      I've booked tickets for me and my lad but not sure if I can actually be bothered going.

      Did anyone go to the main stand events?

      So the club needs a crowd to attend this event in order for it to test and pass all the safety protocols. Why then are the refreshments not free of charge instead of discounted? By turning up you are providing a valuable service, surely the club can afford to give you a cup of tea, beer, pies etc. pro gratis...gratis coming from the latin for favour.

      Inside the concourse was exactly the same but big sections of the wall taken out to make an entrance to the old road which I guess will have programme / drink stalls. Looked good. No restricted views at the back as the roof is now gone.
      Outside looks a long way off but I'm no building expert and I guess that can all be done at any point.
      Hopefully today's news doesn't delay the full opening too long.

      Cheers. Sounds good. Apart from this delay. But I'm sure that will be sorted.

      3 years with a membership that has gotten me 0 tickets. When I finally got close in the ballot (157 on the waiting list), they only released tickets up to position 110. Had this thing been completed, this membership would've finally been worth something. Just my luck

      Keep trying Diego, members sales are hard work but you can get them.

      The situation is an absolute disgrace.

      2 years to build this thing, 2 extra weeks to get it done at the beginning and end of the seasons, and it's still not ready. It's already been delayed by a year due to the big sneeze, and before that for the original planning permission. What the hell was keeping them? It's one modest size stand they were asked to build, not exactly renovating the Bernabeu from top to bottom. 😡 No wonder it's taken them as long as it has to build the swimming pool down by the Docks.

      I suppose the new target is to get it fully operational for the derby in a couple of months time. Can't be having people missing out on that one now, can we?

      I just want to apologise for the quote there, if anyone found the above comment insensitive, given the development that happened.

      It was not my intention to upset anyone about it,
      I was not aware of the incident before the post was made. And when our crowd gave a minute of appreciation at our game, I didn't join in, as I didn't know what it was about. Now of course I do know what happened, so I am sorry if anyone was upset by the timing of the comment above.

      The whole post is F***ing insensitive, not just because of the Evertonian workie who lost his life but how about all the F***ing workers/subcontractors whose livelihoods were messed about because the contractor went into administration.

      It's F**k all to do with the club - but I find your whole tone as F***ing whinging for no F***ing reason. Get a F***ing grip!

      The administration event was the last 6 weeks of a 3 year process. It should not take 3 years to build a stand.

      And yes, I am entitled to whinge about it. Because the longer we're waiting, the more demand there is on the current capacity, and the more difficult it is for most of us to get tickets for games. Admittedly something you never have to worry about, but the current ballot process is a shambles. Yes there is a new crowd that say they will finish it, but the upper tier still resembles a building site. At the current rate of progress, that stand won't be ready by the end of this season.
