Liverpool today unveiled the design for the new stadium, scheduled to open in 2010.
The design is an upgrade on the initial plans as the new owner’s would like to be able to increase capacity above 75,000, subject to the plans being approved by Liverpool council. It was always a nightmare getting tickets for Anfield so I’m sure they’ll have no problems filling it. Not sure if there’s the road infrastructure in place though to support it – it will be only a stone’s throw away from the current home of the real theatre of dreams, which is not the most accessible of stadiums.
Exciting times ahead, especially with all the new acquisitions, which Liverpool added to today with the signing of Brazil’s under-20 Captain Lucas Leiva.
