#TDS24 Network with project delegations from 50+ stadium, arena and venue investments – as TheStadiumBusiness' Design & Development Summit returns to Manchester


TOUR UPDATE: Anfield’s new grandstand development nears end

Delegates of TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit 2016 are set to be taken on a full access, technical tour of Anfield’s stunning new grandstand hosted by the Liverpool FC project team.

Yesterday, the latest updates on the project – which will see the stadium’s capactiy rise to 54,000 – were released.

Now visible at the Anfield Rd end of the stadium is the brand new players’ entrance and a direct link for supporters from Walton Breck Road to a newly resurfaced Stanley Park.

The walk has also been lined with more than 70 tress, grown specially in Germany’s Black Forest. Acer trees, holly hedges and bright red flowers have also been planted – chosen specifcally for their red colours to create a “uniquely Anfield feel” to the external public areas.


We reported last month the update on the lower tier seating and new pitch installation, as well as designs for the state-of-the-art concourse, designed by sponsors KSS.

The update looks set to be one of the last before work is completed, ready for fans to take their seats on September 10 for the home game against Leicester City.

The behind-the-scenes tour will take place as a part of our Summit kick-off day on 31 October as well as a tour of neighbouring Goodison Park ahead of their recently announced makeover.

Meet the project team, tour the new grandstand and network with 60+ other global stadium projects at #TDS16 (31 Oct-2 Nov). Earlybird passes still available with 2 free hotel nights.
