Designs of Liverpool FC's new stadium
English Premier League leaders reveal plans for Anfield home ground
Liverpool have released the first images of the £100 million stadium redesign to expand Anfield to a 53,250 capacity. A revamped Main Stand which, subject to planning permission, will be completed in the next two years, adds 8,250 extra seats and increases the club's matchday revenue. A formal planning application is expected in May, at which time Liverpool will also seek permission to expand a second stand - the Anfield Road end - by 4,825 seats. That would take the final capacity to 58,000. Architects KSS have designed the new stand, although Liverpool are currently in the process of agreeing a deal with constructors. The firm have been involved in a number of projects including Stamford Bridge, Twickenham and the Etihad Arena. A new '96th Avenue' to include the Hillsborough memorial is also a fundamental part of the first phase development. Liverpool are currently top of the English Premier League and are favourites to win their first league title since 1990.
