Carillion has secured a £75M deal to expand the Main Stand at Liverpool Football Club’s famous Anfield stadium, it revealed this morning.
The Wolverhampton-based contractor said in a trading update to the City that it had been named preferred bidder for the high profile scheme.
The project will add 8,500 seats to the stand, taking Anfield’s capacity above 50,000.
Liverpool have qualified to play in the lucrative Champions League next season and invested in their playing squad. The club announced in 2012 that it was abandoning plans to build a new stadium in favour of expanding Anfield.
Carillion said revenue in the first half of 2014 was likely to be slightly below that in the same period last year. But it added that it remained on track to grow revenue over the full-year.
