Liverpool FC’s Main Stand Expansion continues to take shape

Over the last few months, the Main Stand redevelopment at Liverpool FC’s Anfield stadium has continued at pace, with completion expected during the 2016/17 Premier League season.

KSS have been working in partnership with Jacobs and Planit on the design, which is keeping the traditional four stand configuration of Anfield. The existing Main Stand seating tier will be retained with new middle and upper tiers under construction.

The first major milestone was reached in July 2015, with the lifting of the 650 tonne roof truss, and in recent weeks the upper tier concrete terrace has been completed.

The expanded stand will enable more fans to experience the unique atmosphere at Anfield and become a part of the famous ‘Anfield Roar’.

Once complete, the Main Stand will become one of the largest all-seater single stands in Europe’s top flights, with over 20,000 fans creating a sea of noise, Anfield’s very own ‘Red Wall’.

Next season will mark another exciting chapter for the Club’s spiritual home, a ground laced in the fabric of football folklore and a beacon not only for the city of Liverpool, but for the whole of English football.
