Liverpool Designer Releases Plans For Anfield To Be Extended to 108,000 Seats

Liverpool supporters are still getting used to Anfield’s extended capacity but the iconic Merseyside stadium could become even bigger, if one particular designer gets their way.

As reported by the Liverpool Echo, local designer Kayla Bibby has re-imagined the entire shape and structure of the ground which would not only boost the Reds chances of re-establishing themselves as England’s top club, but deliver one of football’s most incredible venues.

Kayla would want Walton Breck Road diverted so that the famous Kop end could be extended, and the eventual capacity taken to an eye-watering 108,00 – making Anfield the biggest all-seater stadium in Europe.

In fact, forget Old Trafford and the Nou Camp, the only stadium in world football that would be bigger than Anfield is the Rungrado Stadium in North Korea’s capital Pyongyang, which seats 114,000.

There would also be a football-shaped scoreboard at each end, with the entire area surrounding the outside of the Kop transformed into a new High Street for fans and residents.

The plans are definitely ambitious, and given Anfield’s main stand has only just been extended this season, we reckon they’re probably unlucky to be developed any time soon.

But what do you think of the ideas generally? They look pretty spectacular, eh?
