Liverpool have confirmed the club’s proposed expansion of the Anfield Road Stand will move forward, with an official ground-breaking ceremony planned for next week.

The expansion, which was given approval by Liverpool City Council in June, will see 7,000 more seats added to the Anfield Road Stand, taking the stadium’s overall capacity to more than 61,000.

It follows the redevelopment of Anfield’s Main Stand, which was completed in 2016.

“The redeveloped Anfield Road Stand is anticipated to be ready for the 2023-24 season and its design will see the lower tier retained and refurbished with a new upper tier built above it,” read a club statement.

“Throughout the design process, careful consideration has once again been given to Anfield’s world-class atmosphere through the development of an acoustic and lighting strategy to match that of the one developed with the Main Stand.”
