Anfield Road Stand opening partially for Manchester United fixture at Liverpool

Liverpool’s Anfield Road Stand redevelopment has hit a major milestone, with the upper tier set to partially open for the highly anticipated visit of Manchester United next month.

This marks a crucial advancement for the £80 million project, which has faced significant delays. Pending a safety certificate from Liverpool City Council following a test event, approximately half of the upper tier will be accessible for the December 17 match, increasing the stadium’s capacity to around 56,000.

The opening of the new stand was initially scheduled for August, but setbacks, including the contractor Buckingham Group going into administration, caused delays. Rayner Rowen Construction stepped in, and although fears arose that the upper tier wouldn’t be operational until January, recent progress has been rapid.

Thousands of extra general admission seats are expected to be released for upcoming home games against Manchester United, West Ham United, and Arsenal in December, following the test event. Priority for ticket sales will be given to supporters who had tickets cancelled for earlier fixtures this season.

Once finished, the Anfield Road Stand will boost the stadium’s capacity to approximately 61,000, further enhancing the fan experience.
