The current proposals would see the Anfield Road Stand receive a capacity increase of around 7,000, with the majority of those seats set to be listed as general admission.
They are aware of concerns raised by business owners and resident over noise, light and traffic but Liverpool are holding 'public consultation' events into the new year to sound out potential issues. They require funding. So, of the big steps, we chose to do the Main Stand first, the training ground second and Anfield Road third.
The drop-in events are open to supporters, local residents, businesses, community groups and members of the public, taking place at The Kop Bar, Anfield stadium on Friday November 29 (4-8pm), Monday December 2 (4-8pm) and Tuesday December 3 (12-4pm).
"First, we can reach an agreement with local residents, businesses and community groups that will allow the expansion plan to be carried out, which will mean closing a small section of Anfield Road between 96 Avenue and Skerries Road".
In addition, there will be a project information pod in place on Anfield Road auto park on Saturday November 30 from 12pm until 3pm at the Liverpool v Brighton fixture and on Wednesday December 4 from 5pm until 8pm at Liverpool's encounter with Everton.
"Secondly, we have the right sustainable financial and economic model to deliver a sustainable Anfield in the long term and finally, we can successfully navigate through the complex planning landscape".
As part of the planning application, Liverpool will apply for a licence to make Anfield a permanent concert venue following the success of last summer's gigs, when Pink and Take That played to sell-out crowds.
"We need to be satisfied with the three points for the work to continue". With this being said some sports bar/lounge hospitality packages will be made available as a result of the development. According to RTE Sport the Merseysiders are also planning on hosting concerts as well as Gaelic Games and American Football. The majority of these new seats would be general admission, with some sports bar and lounge hospitality spaces being offered.
Liverpool have announced plans to expand the Anfield capacity by 7,000 seats to 61,000.
Insider Insight: Anfield has already undergone redevelopment following the expansion of its Main Stand, which was completed in 2016, that took its capacity to 54,742 and earned the club an extra £12m in revenue in its first operational season.
"Further profiling is needed and we expect to provide more details early next year in the second phase of the consultation". The hope is to add another 7,00 seats to the stand, bringing the overall capacity of Anfield to 61,000.
