Does anyone know what are FSG's long term plans for Anfield? Will they look to extend The Kop and the Sir Kenny Daglish Stand after they have done Anfield Road at some point in the future or will they just leave it at that?

{Ed002's Note - No that won’t be happening.}

Agree0 Disagree0

Cool, cheers Ed.

28 Jun 2021 18:18:15
Why would they not be looking into further development ed. Is there no space, no infastructure, or not financially viable?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - it is not possible without paying to replace the infrastructure.}

From a business perspective, we should have pressed ahead with building a new stadium 20+ years ago. But hey ho that waste of space Moores was in charge so we didn't.

The new extension will take us to nearly 60,000 capacity. That will be a decent sized stadium so if that is the very max we can get to then that is not too shabby. But ultimately it is a shame we cannot get any bigger as we could fill out even bigger.

The new plans make Anfield look decidedly lop-sided. I hope they do expand the Kop and Sir Kenny stands in the future or it may tip over.

I feel like people who want Anfield to keep getting bigger and bigger are overcompensating for something.

Stadium with 61,000 seats available, of which only 27,000 have been given to season ticketholders (if what I have read is accurate) . What do you need a larger stadium for? Why not expand the season ticketholders' numbers (some of whom are waiting for decades) first, before expanding the far more lucrative match day revenues?

That cliche works for fast cars Thunderbird. Not football stadiums you don't even own.

28 Jun 2021 21:25:23
We’ve gone from around 35/ 40’000 in the 80’s and 90’s to around 61000 now, that’s not bad at all and we’ve not had to move. And unlike Man City, we don’t rent our place from the council.

28 Jun 2021 21:59:26
Anfield’s capacity has never been bigger than it will be after the Annie Road end redevelopment, I think the record crowd is about 61,000 ish.
If rail standing were to be introduced on the Kop it could probably go up to 65 - 70,000 I’d guess?
Although the traffic and crowd dispersal plans would have to improve also to get over planning constraints.

28 Jun 2021 22:28:53
Juicer - thank goodness the capacity will be bigger after Annie road is developed lol. I'd have to question my trust in FSG even more if the developed the stand and somehow reduced capacity. :p.

I can only imagine what a 61000 Anfield is going to sound like on a big European night or against United. Don't know why we need it bigger, only reason is because Old Toilet is bigger but that place, and the Emirates et al. are libraries.

ArAy - you are spot on…. The new stand only received 2,000 seats for season tickets, it’s a joke, most of it went on corporate!

The season ticket waiting list is closed, there’s over 20,000…More season tickets needs to be allocated in the annie road end expansion.

Thunderbird 2, I’m with you. Seems to be a lot of shortcomings that need to be overcompensated for.

29 Jun 2021 08:21:40
I personally want the ground the biggest and best it can be. The amount of times I’ve tried and failed to get a ticket is unbelievable.

29 Jun 2021 08:30:43
Juicer - I may be wrong but I don’t think rail standing will increase the capacity due to safety reasons.

29 Jun 2021 10:33:48
Expanding the stadium is good for fans, as it means more of them will get to see games, but the big money is in the corporate and commercial sides of things, that's why newer stadiums like Emirates and Spurs Stadium will generate far bigger revenues than even a bigger Annfield. Not much you can do with an old stadium other than increase capacity, they're not built to add on the fancy aspects of new stadiums.
