Liverpool have received planning permission for a £60million redevelopment to their Anfield stadium.

The club's owners, Fenway Sports Group (FSG), have already invested £110m in a new main stand, which opened in 2016, and took the capacity from around 44,000 to just over 53,000, says the Liverpool Echo.

Now they have been given the green light by the city council to begin works on the Anfield Road stand, which will see their maximum capacity boosted by more than 7,000, taking them up to 61,000 in total.

The new stand is expected to take 18 months to complete and is scheduled to open in summer 2023.

This follows on from the construction of a new state-of-the-art training facility in Kirkby, which set FSG back around £50m to construct.

Crucially for Liverpool fans, the building works on the stadium will not have any impact on the capacity during the season.

The major works on the stand will only take place once the season has ended.
