Tottenham Hotspur can now boast of having the best stadium in the country and one of the best in the world.

The new stadium is not only a state of the art facility but retains the feel of a traditional football ground which is build to generate an atmosphere.

The 62,062 capacity stadium boasts of several unique features including the largest single-tier stand in the UK, an unparalleled choice of food and drink outlets and even a retractable pitch to host NFL matches.

However, it looks like Liverpool might soon be able to potentially leapfrog Spurs as having the second biggest club stadium in England behind Manchester United.

The Reds confirmed through their official website that they intend to redevelop the Anfield Road stand with ambitious new plans now under active consideration.

The Athletic’s James Pearce has said that this would take the capacity of Anfield which currently stands at 54,074, to above 60,000.

While there is no guarantee that the redevelopment will go ahead, Liverpool claimed that they are engaging with the local community and other key stakeholders before coming up with a realistic vision.

Spurs Web Opinion

Anfield has always been one of British football’s most historic grounds and adding another 6000-odd seats to the stadium will do the stadium’s infamous atmosphere no harm at all. However, the overall facilities at the new Tottenham Hotspur stadium and the fan experience simply cannot be matched unless the Reds demolish and rebuild Anfield.

  1. I disagree with what you said concerning liverpool, they cannot match what you have created at your new ground, what happens at Anfield is natural, it’s people showing real emotions, architecture can’t replace that with concrete and steel, what happens at anfield is something unique, London hasn’t got a community feel anymore, it’s outgrown that, you can live next door to someone for years and not even know their name, it’s not if Liverpool expand Anfield it’ when, that’ll come very soon, I’m proud of being a scouser, you probably being a cockney no sorry a Londoner have no Idea what I’m talking about?, Liverpool is an experience, one you first feel as a young child and it sticks with you for the rest of your life, Liverpool football club, isn’t just about football, it’s a way of life.
