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
