PHOTOS: How Anfield will look after expansion to 61,000

Anfield is to be home to 61,000 Reds on matchday from 2023 onwards after a landmark day whereby Liverpool were granted permission to kickstart their next expansion phase.

The stadium is to look incredible both up-close and from further afield, with the new Anfield Road end to create an imposing view in the skyline alongside the Main Stand.

Work on the £60 million new stand has already started in earnest after a year delay due to the pandemic, with the turnstiles set to open in time for the 2023/24 season.

It acts as another huge step in matching Liverpool’s on-field ambitions with those off of it, and it is going to be a thing of beauty – inside and out.

New pedestrian and cycle routes will be put in place on the edge of Stanley Park as the stand sees the original road rerouted.
