What is the capacity of Anfield

As the eagerly awaited Anfield Road Stand expansion nears completion, we take a look at the capacity of Anfield, and see how it compares to our rivals grounds.

Despite suffering a number of setbacks (due to the original main contractor going into adminstration), the expansion of the Anfield Road Stand is nearing completion.

After a successful test event two weeks ago, the club has been able to partially open the top tier of the stand, adding an additional 6000 seats to Anfields capacity.  That means Anfield's current capacity is  57,000.  When the Anfield Road Stand expansion is complete in early 2024, Anfield's capacity will stand at 61,000.

Indeed, Liverpool set a new attendance record when Manchester United visited Anfield last Sunday,with 57, 158 fans attending the game.  That was the largest crowd at Anfield for 60 years.
