Liverpool close to stadium decision

A senior figure at Liverpool has revealed that the club is making progress on attempts to find a new home for the club or the possibility of redeveloping Anfield, and that a decision will be made soon, the Daily Mail has reported.

Ian Ayre, managing director at the Reds, insists that the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group, are making headway in the face of suggestions that the plans have stalled, with the Mail adding that FSG have been criticised for not having taken further steps in the 19 months they have owned the club.

The newspaper continues that FSG’s preferred option is to redevelop Anfield because of the greater costs of an entirely new stadium, which would provide only a minimal increase in capacity for a far higher expenditure. But expanding Anfield faces problems of its own, as a larger stadium could deprive local residents of adequate amounts of sunlight.

Ayre said: “There is progress and we are still in dialogue on both fronts. We have more dialogue going with the Anfield residents than we ever have, as with other stakeholders in and around Anfield. I think it’s also fair to say that we are already fairly well down the line with a couple of major brands who have shown significant interest in naming rights for a new stadium.
