TheStadiumBusiness Design & Development Summit is excited to announce that Project representatives from Everton FC will be joining us in London for the 8th annual edition.
As reported on TheStadiumBusiness News, Everton FC has revealed it’s waterfront vision for a new 52,000-capacity stadium.
The stadium – which will reportedly cost £500m (€556.9m/$638m) – is made up of four distinctive stands including a large steep home stand to the south that will house 13,000 home fans on matchdays. It will also be future-proofed for any changes in regulations in relation to safe standing. The design of two of the stands (north and south) will allow for rail seating and in future, should the law change, a safe standing solution. The club’s proposal also includes extensive public spaces for use on both matchdays and non-matchdays, the creation of a waterway to connect the docks and a new multi-storey car park next to the river, with a footbridge linking it to the stadium.
The project aims to deliver a £1bn boost to the city’s economy and create a range of community assets such as homes, health, education and enterprise amenities as well as the introduction of public space which will include a lasting tribute to the club’s current home of 127 years.
“It is, first and foremost, a stadium for football, for our passionate fans and for our players. A stadium that gives Everton Football Club a platform for growth both commercially and socially. But it is also a stadium for the entire city and a development which will deliver transformative benefits in terms of regeneration and inclusive growth for the whole Liverpool City Region and for North Liverpool in particular.” – Prof. Denise Barrett-Baxendale, Everton’s Chief Executive.
