Liverpool announce plans to unveil Kenny Dalglish Stand on day of Man United game
Liverpool have announced that they will officially unveil the Kenny Dalglish Stand ahead of their next Premier League match at home to Manchester United later this month.
It was announced earlier this year that Anfield's Centenary Stand would be renamed in honour of their former player and manager and the club has been using the international break to install new signage and exterior graphics to the stand in preparation for the meeting with United on October 14.
As a statement from the club makes clear, Liverpool intend to mark the occasion with a special matchday programme cover dedicated to Dalglish. As well as this, there are plans to unveil a mosaic across the stand in honour of the Scot before the game against United kicks off.
The full statement from Liverpool can be read below.
'Liverpool FC will mark the official unveiling of the Kenny Dalglish Stand to fans at the Premier League match against Manchester United next Saturday, with a host of celebratory activity planned.
Earlier this year, the club announced that Anfield’s Centenary Stand would be renamed the Kenny Dalglish Stand in honour of the Scot’s immeasurable contribution to the Reds, both on and off the field.
Work on branding the Kenny Dalglish Stand is well under way, with the installation of illuminated signage and exterior graphics to the front and inside of the stand beginning this week, set for completion ahead of the official fan unveiling at the clash with United.
To celebrate the occasion, a special mosaic will be revealed across the Kenny Dalglish Stand and the Kop ahead of kick-off and the matchday programme will feature a cover dedicated to the Liverpool legend.'
