Expansion of Liverpool’s Anfield Road Stand Delayed

With the main building contractor entering administration (bankruptcy) the Liverpool stadium expansion project has now fallen behind schedule significantly

Renovations to Liverpool’s Anfield Road Stand were initially approved during the summer of 2021, and work began on the project in September of 2021. The original timeline had the stand being opened and fully operational by the start of the 2023-24 season; however, the club has now pushed that date back to October following the September international break.

Even this adjusted timeline was brought into question when the main building contractor on the project, the Buckingham Group, filed for administration (bankruptcy in the US) after racking up delays on both the Liverpool and Fulham stadium renovation projects. Read here about the significant delays to Fulham’s stadium renovations. A rumored opening date in early 2024 now sounds like the most realistic scenario for Liverpool. Currently, only the existing lower portion of the stand will be open for Liverpool’s scheduled home games.

This also means that, for now, our newest option among Liverpool tickets and hospitality, Brodie’s Sports Bar, is also unavailable. We do have other packages, though.

Additions to the Anfield Road Stand

The £60m project is centered around the addition of an upper tier to the Anfield Road Stand that will increase the overall capacity by 7,000 seats. This will bring the total capacity to 61,000, making it the 4th largest Premier League stadium. The plans for the project include adding general admission concourses, hospitality lounges, a family fan zone, club offices, staff facilities, as well as improving lighting, and landscaping.
