Operation Anfield: Liverpool look to build the third largest stadium in the UK

Liverpool have been looking for ways in which they can further increase the size of their Anfield stadium but news reports reveal that the club are now admitting that plans have stalled.

Chief executive Ian Ayre has today revealed that plans for the club to develop the ground were now becoming unrealistic due to complications within their plans to obtain land to enable them to expand the stadium to include 60,000 seats, an increase of 15,000.

Ayre said in a club statement that the plan “looks increasingly unlikely”, confirming the notion that owner John W Henry revealed on social networking site Twitter that there were “so many obstacles” in relation to the development.

Former owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett had announced that they were planning to create a new stadium in Stanley Park, saying that the club would move into the new stadium following its completion, a comment that seemed to upset a number of Liverpool fans that believe the stadium is a huge part of the club’s reputation.

Henry has instead revealed that he wanted to improve the current ground but it seems that increasing issues could cause large problems for the plans and will leave Henry either having to delay his development or consider other options.

According to the statement that Ayre issued on the club’s behalf, “There has been an enormous amount of work that has been undertaken to explore the building of a new stadium as well as exploring the redevelopment idea.”

The news shows that the Liverpool owners are looking to push the club status within the Premier League as hard as they can, possibly creating the third largest stadium in the league behind Manchester United and Newcastle United.
