[SPORTS] Everton secure planning permission for 53,000-capacity stadium

Posted by on February 26, 2021 0

Everton have secured planning permission for a £500 million ($705 million) 53,000-capacity stadium in Liverpool’s docklands as they seek to compete with the Premier League’s “Big Six”.

The club, who currently play at Goodison Park, have been English champions nine times in their illustrious history but have not won any silverware since 1995.


Chairman Bill Kenwright hailed the “very important step” in the Toffees’ ambition to be a consistent challenger to Merseyside rivals Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Arsenal.

Goodison has been the club’s home since 1892, but it has a capacity of less than 40,000 and outdated facilities.

Everton are hoping their new stadium by the River Mersey will boost their revenue in the long term.

The plans passed by Liverpool City Council still have to gain approval from national government.

However, if there are no objections the club would look to start work in the coming months, with a view to moving in ahead of the 2024/25 season.

Everton are challenging for a place in next season’s Champions League. They are seventh in the Premier League, five points off the top four with a game in hand.
