It has been revealed recently that Everton FC want to build a new stadium in Walton Hall Park in Liverpool. The reason for the move would be to increase capacity and operate from a modern stadium offering greater revenue streams.
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.
But city leaders insisted there would be none of the demolitions that have been a necessary part of Liverpool FC’s long-running new stadium saga, and city Mayor Joe Anderson said the public would be fully consulted on their views ahead of any development.
As it stands details are vague, but the announcement by the club that it has Walton Hall Park in its sights is the most firm indication of what the club’s future plans are since 2009 when the government rejected its move to a 55,000 seated stadium in Kirkby.
