Henry questions financial impact

Published Add your comment

Liverpool's principal owner John Henry insists it is a myth that a new stadium will transform the club's financial fortunes.

The lead figure in Fenway Sports Group has suggested a new-build in Stanley Park would most likely lead to increased ticket prices, quoting recent examples taken from the United States.

"No-one has ever addressed whether or not a new stadium is rational," the American wrote in an email to The Anfield Wrap website. "New stadiums that are publicly-financed make sense for clubs - I've never heard of a club turning down a publicly-financed stadium. But privately carrying new stadiums is an enormous challenge."
