Liverpool's extension of Anfield is set to make their famous old stadium the third biggest in the Premier League and now fans have been given a sneak preview in the form of a new video showing the planned construction.
In a time-lapse video posted to video-sharing website YouTube, the construction works
The work is so far running to schedule and as can be seen in the video, is starting to take shape.
The previous 1970's extension fn the old Main Stand was demolished as part of the upgrading plans earlier this year. The new building will replace the old extension and add an extra 8,500 seats to the stadium's capacity.
Not only will their be more seating available but the new stand will also add new corporate facilities and a second fan park area outside of the ground.
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."
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.
