Second stage consultation on Anfield expansion

Liverpool FC has launched the second stage of a public consultation on the proposed expansion of the club’s Anfield Road Stand.

The vision for the project is to create a bigger Anfield Stadium, which will see more fans watch some of Europe’s best live football in a world-class facility in the heart of Liverpool.

The current proposals would see the capacity of the Anfield Road Stand increase by around 7,000 seats, the majority of which will be general admission, with some sports bar/lounge hospitality being offered.

Should the expansion go ahead, it would take the overall stadium capacity at Anfield to over 61,000.

The consultation will take place from February 12 until February 28 and the public will be able to see the club’s updated plans both online and at a series of public drop-in events being held at Anfield.

The public drop-in events will take place on the following dates:

The Kop Bar, Kop Stand, Anfield (entrance via Walton Breck Road)

Wednesday February 12 (12pm – 8pm)

Thursday February 13 (4pm – 8pm)

Pop-up information stand on Anfield Road:

Monday February 24 (5pm – 8pm, at Liverpool v West Ham United game)

The club had 800 responses during the first stage of consultation, with much of that feedback being supportive of the vision to create a bigger Anfield and enabling more supporters to watch the Reds in a world-class facility.

For those unable to attend an event in person, the Anfield Road expansion online hub will be updated with the second-stage proposals from February 12:
