Liverpool Hopes For Stadium Go Ahead

Liverpool is waiting with baited breath for the decision from John Prescott on whether to give the greenlight to allow local heroes Liverpool Football Club to start construction on their new stadium at Stanley Park.

The club is currently overwhelmed with demand for most matches and faced with the capacity problems, plus need to secure extra income from increased ticket sales so it can maintain pace with rival Arsenal who are set to benefit from increased ticket revenue when their new stadium is completed and Manchester United who have already added a number of stands to Old Trafford with plans for more.

The new stadium, which will have 60,000 capacity will also benefit from much improved views which will provide fans with a greater sense of value for money, and Liverpool with an excuse to hike prices further as a result.

The current stadium at Anfield will be completely flattened to create a plaza the size of St Georges Hall to create quality public space to set the new stadium in with plans for cafes, shops and even a hotel around it. The nearby Victorian Stanley park is set to be restored to its former glory with improved football pitches and a complete restoration of the Gladstone Observatory.

The 80million, 60,000 capacity stadium and the surrounding masterplan, which has already been given planning permission by Liverpool Council has been referred to the Deputy Prime Minister because of the sheer scale of it, who has the final say on all large projects in the U.K.
