Liverpool today unveiled the plans for the brand new Anfield stadium. Chief Executive Rick Parry declared: ‘”We’re creating a stadium that not only the Club and supporters can be proud of, but something the whole city can be proud of. Liverpool as a city is on the move and deserves world class developments like this. ‘
The club aim to open the stadium in the summer of 2010 and it the initial plans are for a 60,000 seater stadium (a 15,000 increase on the current stadium). The enormous new Kop stand, by far the largest stand in the new stadium will hold 18,000 fans alone in a single tier design. The stadium has the capacity to be increased to a capacity of 78,000 seats.
The entire investment has been budgeted at around £300 million including land developments in the area.
The club have released three images from stadium designers HKS – one from inside the ground facing the massive new Kop, and two exterior images.
Full size images of these designs are available in the forum or on the official website.
