Another new view of Liverpool's larger Anfield Road End stand has emerged with progress continuing on the expansion of the famous ground ahead of the 2023/24 season kicking off in under a month.
Stunning drone footage emerged of the rebuild earlier this summer (watch that by clicking here) and it is clear that the new stand will reach out much further than the old version, taking up much more space on the ground.
Just like with the Main Stand, which was opened in 2016, that will mean there is much more room for supporters on the concourse inside. The Anfield Road End is built in a similar design, similarly with a much better fan experience in mind.
"I can’t wait for that [the expanded Anfield]," Jürgen Klopp said on the We Are Liverpool podcast this week. "My imagination is not good enough to see that, honestly. I had some of the best moments of my life in the ‘old’ stadium so let’s see what we can create.
"It’s like 6,500-7,000 more [fans], it would be cool if it could be the right people, the loud people. On fire and really enjoying it. Thinking ‘I was waiting for this ticket for 20 years, I will shout my soul on the pitch’. That would be really cool. It’s really exciting, can’t wait to see it for the first time from [up] close."
The first home game of the season is against Bournemouth, with Liverpool having asked the Premier League for an away fixture first to allow for a little extra time to complete the building work. The Reds begin the campaign at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea.
Liverpool.com says: The expansion of Anfield is another reason to be excited ahead of the new season. More fans inside the ground can only be a good thing. In an ideal world, plans for the next phase of expansion will begin as soon as the new Anfield Road End is unveiled, with the work done so far on the famous stadium having made a huge impact, but demand for tickets still huge.
