Everton reveal incredible plans for new stadium

Images have been posted on Twitter revealing Everton’s plans for their new stadium following today’s fans consultation held by the club at St. Luke’s Church.

The exciting plans show a single-tier stand, the potential for safe standing and the proximity of the pitch being similar to that of Goodison Park.

In the meeting, one of the topics discussed was the capacity of the new stadium, with it being stated that 99 percent of Everton supporters wanted more than 50,000 seats.

However, American architect Dan Meis, who is working on the ground, is wary of going over that mark, highlighting the importance of selling out a stadium and how the last 10,000 seats inside a new ground usually cost the most and bring in the least revenue.

Meis, who is also an Everton supporter, confirmed the club’s plans to have a single-tier stand to replicate the Yellow Wall at Borussia Dortmund at the Kop End at Liverpool.

This stand would be the home end and located at Bramley-Moore Dock, holding around 12,000 to 15,000 Evertonians.

Everton are also looking into the possibility of installing the largest stadium ‘big screen’ in the UK at their new home and the possibility of safe standing should regulations in the UK change.
