Liverpool have announced plans for a new 55 000 seater stadium on Stanley Park, scheduled to be completed in time for the 2005/06 season.
The new stadium would be just 300 yards from Anfield after it was decided that plans to expand would be too difficult and result in too much financial loss.
At a cost of £60-70m it will be continue to be named Anfield.
Fortunately a number of Anfield's features will be moved to the new stadium, including the Paisley and Shankly Gates and the Hillsborough memorial.
