Liverpool FC has released new time-lapse footage capturing Anfield’s transformation since work began on the redevelopment of the Main Stand.
The footage shows how the expansion has taken shape since construction work got underway in January and includes key moments such as the lifting of the new 650 tonne roof truss and the installation of the first concrete sections of the new upper tier.
Towering high above the existing Stadium, the redeveloped Main Stand is set to comprise three tiers, adding around 8,500 seats and taking the overall capacity of Anfield to around 54,000.
With more than 3,000 tonnes of steel already erected at Anfield, the Main Stand expansion project is scheduled to be completed during the 2016/17 season – creating one of the largest single stands in European football.

The plans, which are still subject to conditions and legal agreement, would see 8,500 seats added to the Main Stand, and an extra 4,000 to the Anfield Road stand.
Construction could begin on the main stand soon, and be completed by the 2016/17 season.
Liverpool FC’s Chief Executive Officer, Ian Ayre, said: “Today’s approval by the Planning Committee is another step on our journey which we embarked on nearly two years ago.
“We’ve received very positive support for our proposals during a public consultation exercise earlier this year and whilst we are delighted about the progress made today, there are still some steps that we need to navigate through in order to give us the certainty that we need to proceed with our expansion plans.”
