Liverpool FC has awarded the contract to build the Kop Fan Bar to Rayner Rowen Construction in Wigan. The club plans to transform the old retail store within the Kop stand at Anfield into a venue which will open four hours before kick-off, to feature live music and with large-screen TVs; capacity 700.
York Community Stadium taking shape
Councillor Nigel Ayre, executive member for leisure, culture and tourism said:
The progress being made on site is exciting to see and with the building of the west stand starting and foundations for the east stand in place there is much more to come.
The leisure centre continues to develop at pace, you can start to see where the sports hall, gym and swimming areas will be so it is very exciting. It’s full steam ahead on site as we look ahead to opening next year.

Khan met MLB chief Rob Manfred on his visit to New York earlier this month and threw the first pitch at the Mets match with the Minnesota Twins.
