Everton Announce New Stadium Site Plan

Breaking news:

Everton have announced that their preferred site for their new stadium is Walton Hall Park, just a mile away from Goodison Park.

The club wants to quit its Goodison Park home to move the short distance up the road, in order to increase capacity and operate from a modern stadium that would generate more revenue.

Club chairman Bill Kenwright said: “On my journey to our home games, as I pass Walton Hall Park, I inevitably think that I am only a minute away from our beloved Goodison. For several years now I’ve also thought, if only it was available for our new stadium, it ticks all the boxes.”

Liverpool council wants to see a comprehensive regeneration of the area and believes more than 1,000 jobs could be created in the process.

The council will be involved as an official partner, along with housing association Liverpool Mutual Homes, which will build new homes as part of the overall regeneration scheme.
