Liverpool are planning on carrying out a huge £75 million upgrade of Anfield, but they are waiting on approval from Liverpool’s city councillors before the project can get the green light, as reported by the Daily Express.
The club have seen a recommendation given by the planning report to allow the Main Stand get an extension, and they now face a September 23rd day of decision, with the American owned side hoping for approval to be granted.
There could still be opposition to the scheme, even if it is approved by the meeting, but approval would be a big step towards the club finally being able to break ground on their stadium expansion.
The project would take 20 months after construction begins, and would be expected to be done for the start of the 2016/17 season.
This would see the size of the stadium expand to 53,500, an additional 8,300 seats to a stadium that is consistently sold out.
