Liverpool are set to reveal plans to deliver a commemorative home win to coincide with the opening of an extended ‘New Anfield’ some time before the end of the decade.

The Merseyside club are expected to announce plans to extend the capacity of their home ground to 60,000, rather than build a new ground to drop points on at Stanley Park.

Manager Brendan Rodgers has stressed he and his squad will do all they can to commemorate the new stadium’s opening with a victory.

“We have been working towards that from the moment I stepped through the gates of Melwood, and I am increasingly confident we can gather the three points on the day,” he told awaiting journalists.

“But we shouldn’t forget just how competitive the Spartan’s league is these days, and we’ve got around eight years to drop to that level and to find out exactly how tough it can be.”

Anfield redevelopment

The redevelopment will cost in the region of four Andy Carrolls and Liverpool will commit to building a hostel for all of the local homeowners being displaced to facilitate the expansion.

Liverpool chairman Tom Werner said, “We believe the plans show how committed we are to taking Liverpool football club to the very forefront of match-day seating way beyond that which is necessary.”

“Current projections show that every ticket holder have an entire section to themselves. Which will be nice.”
