Main contractor Carillion has already completed a year of construction work at the stadium, which has expanded the Main Stand to more than double the height of the existing stand.

The club announced the redevelopment of Anfield in December 2014 and plans to take the Main Stand capacity to over 20,000. Carillion arrived on site later that month, with construction work getting underway in January 2015.

The Main Stand expansion project is on target for completion in time for the next football season later this year, with the redeveloped stand set to comprise three tiers and the existing lower tier re-profiled to accommodate a widened player tunnel, new team benches, media platform and wheelchair viewing positions.
