Liverpool unveils Anfield expansion plans Liverpool FC has revealed KSSdesigned plans for a £60m expansion of its Anﬁeld stadium and has begun a second-stage public consultation on the proposals. The plans to expand Anfield, which were first revealed in 2014, were developed following the takeover of the club by FSG in 2010 – putting an end to discussions about a potential move to a new stadium. Work to expand the Main Stand was completed in 2016, increasing the capacity of Anfield by about 8,500 to 54,074. An update on the Anfield Road project in June 2018 had cast some doubt on whether it would come to fruition, with the club trying to balance the demand for more seats with commercial viability.
