FOX Sports has confirmed that a plan to build a new stadium for the Premier League’s Liverpool Football Club has been given a green light.
The news comes after Liverpool owner Fenway Sports Group (FSG) revealed that it had secured a £300m loan for the redevelopment of Anfield.
“We are very happy to announce that we have secured a loan from FSG for a total of £300 million,” said Liverpool FC Chairman Greg Dyke.
“This is an important loan and one that will allow us to start work on a new Premier League home, one which will be the envy of the world.”
The club has yet to reveal any further details of the new home, although reports suggest that the plans could see the building of a retractable roof on the pitch at Anfield, with plans also being put in place for the stadium to be extended into the ground.
“The stadium will be an absolute marvel, an architectural marvel, and will provide the ultimate environment for our club and its fans,” said Dyke in a statement.
Earlier this month, Dyke announced that the stadium would be built on the site of Anfield’s historic home ground, and would be completed within a couple of years.”
I have already spoken to all our stakeholders and we will be following the progress of the project closely.”
