A report in Monday’s Daily Post provides an exclusive update on Liverpool FC’s proposed new stadium on Stanley Park – and a timetable of action including the demolition of the current Anfield stadium by December 2009.

According to the report city politicians will meet this Friday and make a landmark decision to lease the part of Stanley Park the Reds want to build their new 60,000 seater stadium, it will trigger a £240m regeneration of north Liverpool, with the football club needing to put together a package of £180m to fund the stadium by the end of the month.

Construction work for the new stadium is pencilled in for January 2007, with the stadium hosting it’s first match in August 2009. By May 2010 the club hope to have completed all three phases in the regeneration and construction process, including a new Anfield Plaza on the existing site home of the club.
