Coronavirus forces Liverpool to delay Anfield Road expansion

Coronavirus forces Liverpool to delay Anfield Road expansion

Wednesday 29th April 2020

The Coronavirus outbreak has forced Liverpool to delay their plans to expand the Anfield Road stand.

The Premier League leaders have previously planned to start construction work as soon as the planning application was granted, but have now delayed the project for "at least" 12 months.

The plans include completely rebuilding the Anfield Road end at a cost of £60m. It will add 7,000 more seats and take the total capacity of Anfield to more than 61,000.

The project is now expected to be completed in the summer of 2023.
