Cape Town - Fenway Sports Group has promised Liverpool fans a bigger stadium and they are delivering as demolitions have started last week and continuing this week as Anfield is set to hold 58 800 fans.  

After FSG took over ownership of the club they were on the verge of building a new stadium which would have been called Stanley Park. The idea was stalled after the approach of redeveloping Anfield was brought up. Last week a document was submitted to the Liverpool City Council on the restructuring of the stadium.

Joe Anderson mayor of Liverpool is in full support of the development and sees it as an opportunity for everyone. "The proposed redevelopment of the stadium is a hugely important part of our vision for Anfield - to create a thriving community in which people want to live, work and visit,” he said on the Liverpool website.

Managing director, Ian Ayre was full of praise for the Liverpool community and said that the 18 month plan could not have been done without the local residents, Your Housing Group and the Liverpool City Council.

"When we set out on the journey to explore the feasibility of expanding the stadium, we said the process would be determined by certainty.

"Certainty that we have the support from local residents and businesses for our proposed plans, that we can acquire the land required and that we can navigate the planning landscape.

"A lot of good work has been done and we still have more work to achieve certainty; however, the planning application is another step in the right direction."
