The ground tests have begun and the demolition of a nearby sports centre will commence 16/3/7.
The stadium capacity is ~60,000 as per the planning application, although the ground can be extended in the future it will have to get new planning permission to extend in the future.
There will be a "kop" stand and it will be the biggest of the four stands which are each individual as the ground has a bowl shape feel to it as they have enclosed the front of the corners but not all the way up.The stand will have 22,000 seats compared with the 12,000 now.
The concourses are 10 metres wide and for those wanting a bet most will have 4 people on the stands.
The pitch is 8 metres back from the stands which is quite a distance but this is to enable newanfield to host a World Cup Match or Champions League Final in the future.
