Before Liverpool FC decided to expand Anfield, the club commissioned two separate concepts of new stadiums at Stanley Park, just across the street. Both were eventually dropped for lower value for money than the expansion scheme.
In April 2014 The Reds first presented renderings of the new Main Stand, which should grow by 8,500 seats and reach a stunning 21,000 capacity. It will house most of the club’s hospitality and offices, also becoming home to the Hillsborough Memorial.
Though not presented in initial renders, the scheme also includes expansion of the northern Anfield Stand by further 4,800 seats, giving a final capacity of 58,800 seats. Planning application for both phases was filed in June 2014.
