Everton Reveal Final Designs For New Stadium On Liverpool's Waterfront

Everton Football Club have revealed the final designs for their new 52,000-seater stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock on Liverpool's waterfront. After three years of consultation, a detailed planning application will finally be submitted today for the £500m project.

Penciled-in 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.

Everton have called Goodison Park home since 1892, and there's no arguing that Goodison is one of the most beautiful and nostalgic football stadiums in Britain, but it does still pack lots of restricted views and cramped facilities. 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.

A stunning new stadium in one of the most unique locations, plus the capacity to host an extra 13,000 fans on match days. The future's looking bright for the blue half of Liverpool.
