If we became a regular top team, could we get 60,000 plus crowds?

Well, we regularly got 50,000 at one time.
Problem being that the stadium capacity is static at around 50,000.

It was built like lego in reality, just take off the roof from those sides without an upper tier and put another level in.
We are nowhere near that though.
