New Anfield Road stand update

The new Anfield Road new stand will be open for Liverpool’s first home game of the Premier League season against Bournemouth on Saturday 19th August. However, the upper tier won’t be complete until later, with the development being phased in during the season.

Work started on the expansion in September 2021. When completed it will increase Anfield‘s capacity to 61,000.

“This has been a hugely ambitious and complex construction project right from the start and I would like to thank everyone who has played a part,” said managing director, Andy Hughes.

“Unfortunately, the upper tier of the Anfield Road Stand is not quite ready for the Bournemouth game. The main contractor, Buckingham, will therefore work with Liverpool City Council’s licensing team to deliver a phased opening process.

“As with any complex major construction project of this scale, there are always so many variables and challenges along the way.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding while we work through the next few weeks with Buckingham to complete this programme and we can’t wait to have this great new Anfield Road Stand fully open for supporters.”
