    Default Liverpool FC New Ground

    New Anfield is back on track after 10m grant

    A MAJOR breakthrough in Liverpool FC's plans for a new stadium is revealed today.

    Government officials have privately agreed to pump around 10m into the regeneration of the area around the club's planned 150m ground at Stanley Park, the ECHO has learned.

    It means the Reds' stadium project is still on track after months of uncertainty.

    A spokeswoman for the Northwest Development Agency, which holds the purse strings, today said no formal decision had been made.

    The news of the cash boost comes a day after the ECHO revealed that property giant Peel Holdings has offered to build Everton FC a new stadium at Switch Island. more

    Question hmmmmm

    can we actually afford to build it and at the same time carry on putting money into the team like we have been? the longer it's left the more it costs to build it. thats what worries me. it's probably the only chance I've got of coming off the waiting list for a season ticket and actually gettin one if they build it, but will it come at a price? at the price of success on the pitch? we seem to be struggling to prove we actually do have the money

    Its all a bit of a gamble.

    I think the transfer budget has already been spent - hence the freebie for Fowler. Think if Benetiz had some cash lying about, he would have been in for Defoe.

    Whether that transfer budget is empty due to money being put aside for the ground or not, I don't know?!

    But with Uniteds stadium holding near-on 60k, and no doubt plans to increase, Arsenal moving this season, and Chelsea looking at other developments, I guess we need to move in order to compete and generate the money through the turnstyles.

    It could have other investors to keep it going and hold other events other than football like Wembley does like having music concerts.

    i think thats the only way it would happen. I still don't think stanley park is the ideal site for it for a lot of obvious reasons thou. tradition is all well and good but you've also got to look at practicality too. I wouldn't say stanley park is the most practical site to build a new 55 to 65k football stadium.

    as for us buying fowler jock m8, the transfer budget hasn't been spent. we do have money to spend right now, it's the in future i mean. getting fowler on a free was nothin to do with being on a budget. it was just the right move for both the club and fowler at the time. simple as.

    Plans for Liverpool FC's new stadium have been re-approved by city councillors without any alterations to the original scheme.

    Plans for the stadium in Stanley Park, next to its current Anfield ground, were first given the go-ahead by Liverpool City Council in 2005.

    The club had to resubmit plans for the 60,000-seater ground to make sure they conformed to new planning laws.

    The club is looking for investors to help fund the 160m venture.

    Shareholders were told at the club's recent AGM that it could be four years before the stadium was completed.

    ANOTHER hurdle to Liverpool FC's stadium plans was today being removed by council chiefs.

    They have started looking for a developer to restore parts of Stanley Park, alongside the planned 60,000-seater ground.

    The news will please European and government officials, who had demanded the council and the club show their commitment to the 160m scheme before handing over millions of pounds.

    But they still want the Reds to confirm they have the money to pay for the stadium, or the cash may be lost. more

    Liverpool FC has been given two months to prove it has the funding to build a new football stadium.

    Part of the plan for the 190m stadium in Stanley Park involves regenerating the area around its current Anfield Road ground with European Union cash.

    The area could get 9m of Objective One Funding - money earmarked by the EU to revive depressed areas.

    Officials who distribute the funds said the club had to provide evidence the stadium funding was in place.

    Financial statement

    A spokesman for the Objective One programme monitoring committee said it had received written assurances from the club and Liverpool City Council about the funding.

    But he added that the committee wanted to see detailed financial statements and accounts before authorising the project.

    A two month appraisal is to take place with a sub-committee deciding by 28 September if the club has given adequate proof of its financial package for the new ground.

    But the committee is also looking at alternative uses for the money in case the club fails to satisfy its requirements.

    It is time for the club to put up or shut up Coun Flo Clucas

    Coun Flo Clucas, the city's head of ecnonomic development warned the club "the clock is ticking."

    She added: "The club has had 18 months to bring forward its proposals and it is are now competing with other projects which have already been appraised.

    "Put simply, it is time for the club to put up or shut up."

    The European cash would pay for environmental and infrastructure improvements in the Anfield area and would not go towards the cost of the stadium.

    Nobody at the club was available for comment.

    Threat to LFC stadium project
    Jul 28 2006
    By Sam Lister Daily Post Staff



    LIVERPOOL FC'S plans to build a new stadium were dealt a massive blow last night after officials told them they were no longer front-runners for a 9m grant.

    The club failed to come up with a "cast-iron" assurance that they had private financial backing, despite being given 18 months to secure a deal.

    Committee members in charge of handing out the European cash fear the scheme has now become so risky they stripped the club of preferred bidder status.

    It means the grant is no longer ring-fenced for the ambitious Stanley Park plans, and LFC will now have to compete with dozens of other Merseyside regeneration schemes for the money.

    It should be allowed to be built on the park full stop. Both club's should be forced out to suitable locations in non-residential areas.

    Both club's are an embrassment to the city. For 10 years EFC have been talking about a move - they haven't even got a site yet. For the past 5 years LFC have been on about one. They even have a site and a design - no stadium. Arsenal come in the last minute and build a beauty.

    The council should be firm and say no deal in Anfield or Walton, get out and offer them sites - again. They offered a part of Garston Docks and Speke to both club's.

    The club's propogate the idea of an indecisive argumentative city that does nothing, even when they throw public money at them.

    Lets hope that with the full restoration of the rest of the park that is planned alongside the ground, the Anfield area will benefit as a whole through community facilities etc...

    Of course, hopefully once the park has been fully restored it will be more accessable and attractive to the folk its meant for not the antisocial minority.

    Liverpool have received the go-ahead from the city council to build a new 60,000 all-seater stadium.

    Council leaders approved a 999-year lease on Friday for a piece of land in the city's Stanley Park, just 300 yards away from their Anfield home.

    "It's all systems go. All we need now is the club to confirm the funding," said council leader Warren Bradley.

    Liverpool have until the end of September to convince the council it can come up with 180m for the project.

    If financing is approved, building work could begin early next year with the first match pencilled in for August 2009.

    Bradley added: "If Liverpool have the funding in place, they can start on the site from January."

    The overall cost of the first phase of the project will be 215m.

    It includes the new stadium which incorporates a centre with facilities for education, sport and community activities, along with a fully restored Stanley Park. source.....

    I remember seeing a post regarding the ashes spread at Anfield, and what would be happening to them. Tho. I can't find it now. So I'll post this here...Just to add a few word to the ashes question. I would think that when the management allowed this practice, they entered into a tacit agreement with the families of the people whose ashes were placed on the field, that they undertake to be gardians of the remains. This would indeed be a legal undertaking, whether agreed to or not. So the management would be legaly bound to re-deposit the remains to a safe place, even if identities could not be confirmed.
    In this case I feel that if enough pressure was brought to bear, (as in a class action ) That maybe the top 12 ins. of the present field would be transfered to the new field and mixed in there. Just a thought.

    Benitez: Stadium plan vital to LFC
    Sep 9 2006
    By Sam Lister Daily Post Staff

    LIVERPOOL FC manager Rafael Benitez yesterday told how plans for a new stadium were vital for the club as senior councillors issued a warning that vital funding could be lost in just seven days.

    The city council's executive board yesterday agreed to rent out one-third of Stanley Park so the club can build a 60,000-seater ground.

    But the club must prove it has the 180m it needs to build the stadium within a week, or lose vital European cash without which the scheme would almost certainly collapse.

    Yesterday, Benitez said: "It is very important that we have this new stadium to have more room for our fans. It will help us provide very important extra funds for our future, and it will help us to compete with clubs like Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

    "We have fantastic support at Liverpool and the Kop is a very special place, but our capacity is just 45,000. It would be even better for everyone if we had 60,000 fans in the ground."
