The future of Everton football club
Everton’s Stadium Development Director Colin Chong has given an update on the clubs plans to move into a new home as soon as possible.
The Toffees have been looking to leave Goodison Park for quite a few years now but a stadium move has not materialised.
Now, the club are looking to move into a new stadium on the Liverpool docks.
That would allow for them to compete with the top six commercially but caution is needed after the problems Tottenham have had recently.
Stadium Development Director gives in-depth update
Now, Everton’s Stadium Development Director Colin Chong has given an update on plans for a new stadium.
He has claimed that the funding for the stadium is ‘complex’ and ‘any deal we do will be the best deal for Everton Football Club.’
“Understandably, a lot has also been said about funding,” he explained in a statement on the Everton website.
“Like all developments of this size and nature, the funding is complex.
“We have a number of options available to us.
“Liverpool City Council is one of those options and there are other opportunities we are exploring too.
“Any deal we do will be the best deal for Everton Football Club.
“The planning application will be submitted at the earliest opportunity and will be complete and thorough.
“It will be a full planning application and, therefore, we need to make sure that everything in it is absolutely correct.
“With regards to capacity, we are carrying out feasibility studies and have surveyed our fans.
“We are working with industry experts to assess what the optimum capacity should be and, so far, a final number has not been determined.”
