Improving the skyline

The club said of the plans on their official website: "The design will ensure that the unrivalled atmosphere and spirit of Anfield is retained, whilst taking the full stadium capacity to 54,000.

"The Main Stand will become one of the largest all-seater single stands in Europe. Visible from several points in the city, it will feature the iconic club crest and will add another impressive landmark to the world renowned Liverpool skyline."

Completion date

Despite the good progress on the stadium, it is not expected to be completed until part-way through the 2015/16 season.

The news might not be welcomed by all at the club though, as the roof of the Kop is set to be trimmed to ensure spectators on the upper stand don't have their view blocked by the famous stand.
