Everton Unveil Final Designs for Proposed New Stadium

The new Everton FC stadium is set to host the first game by 2023. The new stadium's North and South Stand lower tiers will make it easy to adopt rail seating should legislation chance. The plans also include public spaces which will be used on match-day and non-match-days to further redevelop an area that been redundant for some time.

The proposed stadium "is made up of four distinctive stands including a large steep home stand to the south that will house 13,000 Evertonians on matchdays. Supporters will be as close to the action as regulations permit. The overall design will also help amplify the noise within the stadium to capture the intensity and intimacy of Goodison Park in a state-of-the-art arena, while limiting the impact of noise pollution on the surrounding area."

Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale, Chief Executive of Everton Football Club, said: “This is a huge milestone in the Club’s history but also a profound statement of intent for our future. It marks the culmination of many years of work that has combined the passion of our fans with world class design and a commitment to creating something truly special on Liverpool’s waterfront.

“The stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock will deliver the best possible matchday experience for our fans, new facilities for cultural events and a building that will be a stunning new addition to Liverpool’s built environment.

Everton has been playing at the iconic Goodison Park since 1892. The current stadium will be converted to "high-quality, affordable housing, a multi-purpose health centre, community-led retail and leisure spaces and a youth enterprise zone" if a separate planning application, which is due to be submitted soon, is approved, the club spokesman has said.
