Liverpool at Anfield: Image gallery of 114 years at the famous stadium…
Liverpool are preparing to expand Anfield. The stadium expansion page on Liverpool’s official website, sums up the project, and carries the following message:
“The legendary experience of Anfield makes the stadium one of the biggest attractions in the City and famous across the world. Our aim is to transform the Main Stand and the stadiums surrounding area into a modern destination that combines our great history and tradition with high quality facilities.
“In less than two years we will deliver an expanded Main Stand for our supporters and visitors, incorporating an additional 8,500 seats. The design will ensure that the unrivalled atmosphere and spirit of Anfield is retained, whilst taking the full stadium capacity to 54,000.
“The Main Stand will be one of the largest all-seater single stands in Europe. Visible from several points in the city, it will feature the iconic club crest and will add another impressive landmark to the world renowned Liverpool skyline.
“Our commitment to the regeneration of Anfield will go beyond the stadium boundariesin order to create a lasting legacy for North Liverpool. We will restore the ground to the heart of the local community by transforming surrounding lands; bringing new jobs, increased investment and more visitors to the area, the benefits of which will be felt right across the city.”
