Everton Football Club's new 52,888 capacity stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock will have a transformational impact on North Liverpool.
The club's new stadium project is recognised as the largest single-site private sector development in the country, contributing an estimated £1.3bn to the UK economy, creating more than 15,000 jobs and attracting 1.4m visitors to the city of Liverpool.
The club has been at Goodison Park since 1892 but its new home on the banks of the River Mersey will comprise four distinctive stands of equal height with a brick base and glass and steel at roof level.
Evertonians will be as close to the action as regulations allow and a large steep home stand to the south will house 13,000 Blues on matchdays. A Fan Plaza to the east of the stadium will allow the club to animate the build-up to kick-off and could also be used on non-matchdays as outdoor event, community space or a music venue for up to 10,000 people.
The stadium will offer future flexibility as both the lower tiers in the North and South stands will make it easy to adopt rail seating and, should legislation change in the future, they could also be converted into areas for safe standing.
Goodison Park, Everton's current stadium, will become part of an innovative £100m Legacy Project that aims to build on the £10m already spent on community developments in the area by the football club and its official charity Everton in the Community.
