Everton identify new ground site

Everton could move to a new ground a mile away from current home Goodison Park, the Daily Telegraph has reported.

The proposal would see the Toffees set up home in a stadium owned by Liverpool City Council, in the same manner that Manchester City moved to the Manchester City Council-owned City of Manchester Stadium, now the Etihad Stadium.


A site on Walton Hall Park, around a mile from Goodison, has been mooted, and although the location wasn’t confirmed during Everton’s Annual General Meeting on Tuesday, a new stadium was on the agenda and discussed by chief executive Robert Elstone and owner Bill Kenwright.


Everton had previously planned to move to Kirkby, outside the city of Liverpool but within Merseyside, a plan that caused controversy among supporters. It was put to a vote of season ticket holders and despite a small majority favouring the plan, the move later collapsed.


Elstone has confirmed that a partnership with the council is likely to be the only way Everton are able to move to a stadium with a greater capacity than Goodison. “In Everton’s case we will need a collaboration with a number of partners, the principal partner being Liverpool city council,” Elstone said.


“We need the council to be supportive and at the moment there are signs that they are being that and that has to be welcomed,” he added. “As a case study you can present [Manchester] City as a great example of what can be achieved through a sporting led regeneration and that’s a tremendous blueprint that we hope we can follow.”


Everton have played at Goodison since 1892, having previously played at Anfield, now home to Liverpool. A row over rent led to the club leaving Anfield and the formation of Liverpool by the owner of the ground.
