  • Liverpool to postpone further Anfield expansion after fan protest

    Liverpool owner John Henry says fan protests against ticket prices are causing the club to reassess plans to further redevelop Anfield. Henry’s Fenway Sports Group apologized to fans earlier this year and reversed planned rises in ticket prices after a walkout during a game. But having funded the redevelopment of Liverpool’s main stand over the last year, the next phase of the expansion program might not make economic sense if the club can’t recoup the construction cost. The Anfield Road stand had been next in line for rebuilding at the 54,000-capacity Anfield. “I don’t know if there is a next step because ticket prices are an issue in England,” Henry said. “That may foreclose further expansion.
