A time-lapse video released by Liverpool shows the significant progress being made on Anfield's new Main Stand, which will take the stadium's capacity to around 54,000.

With less than a year remaining until the development is set to be completed, the Reds have compiled a video updating fans on the progress being made since the first section of steel framework was erected at Anfield back in March.

The video records initial parts of the infrastructure being installed and expanding across the whole of the current stand, as well as the roof truss being lifted into place. Stairways that will lead fans to the top of Anfield's tallest stand can also be seen forming.

Anfield's capacity will increase by roughly 13,000 when the new three-tier stand is complete, costing £260 million.

Liverpool chiefs intend to include the club's crest on the new development, which will be visible for several miles, in a bid to make Anfield one of the country's top stadiums, alongside the Emirates and Old Trafford.

The developments will make the Main Stand one of the biggest single stands in Europe, holding over 20,000 people.

Liverpool originally had plans to develop a brand new stadium on Stanley Park, adjacent to Anfield. However, it was instead decided they would expand on their current home and are currently eight months on from when the first steel frame was installed.
