Liverpool’s Anfield Road Stand is set to partially open for the upcoming match against Manchester United, signaling a major stride forward for the £80 million redevelopment project. Despite several setbacks, including the involvement of contractor Buckingham Group, progress has been made, with the upper tier of the stand expected to open pending the approval of a safety certificate from Liverpool City Council after a test event.
This long-awaited opening will boost the stadium’s capacity to approximately 56,000, as roughly half of the upper tier will be made available to fans. An exciting development for supporters, it is anticipated that thousands of additional general admission tickets will be released for home games against Manchester United, West Ham United, and Arsenal this December. Ticket sales for these extra seats will take place after the test event, with priority given to those who had their tickets canceled for earlier fixtures.
Upon completion, the Anfield Road Stand redevelopment will see the capacity of Anfield expand to around 61,000. Despite encountering significant challenges, such as financial losses and site chaos throughout the process, the project is steadily moving closer to its conclusion. It is hoped that the refurbishment will greatly enhance the stadium’s facilities and improve the matchday experience for fans.

Stay tuned for further updates as the project nears its much-anticipated completion, allowing Liverpool FC and their loyal supporters to enjoy an even more extraordinary stadium experience.
