Description: Bramley-Moore Dock Stadium

Where is the new Everton stadium being built?

Plans to build a new arena for Everton, to replace the worn-out Goodison Park, have been around since the late 20th century. The matter gained momentum in 2017 when Bramley-Moore river dock was chosen as the location for the new venue. There were still several issues to sort out at the time, such as construction funding and public consultation, so works did not start until the summer of 2021.

What does the construction of Everton's stadium have to do with the UNESCO World Heritage List?

The decision to build the arena was one of the main reasons for the removal of a group of six sites that form the Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City from UNESCO World Heritage List in 2021. According to the organisation, recent major developments have done irreparable damage to the historic image of the waterfront. Regardless of UNESCO decision, the project will see the restoration of the historic wall, gate and hydraulic tower, which stand close to the emerging venue, and the stadium itself will receive a brick facade at the lower end, blending with the industrial character of the area.

How is the construction of a new stadium for Everton going to proceed?

Development began with the backfilling of Bramley-Moore Dock, which was filled with sand dredged from the bottom of the Irish Sea. This phase was not completed until early 2022, at which point the actual construction of the stadium began. The stadium is scheduled to be completed before the start of the 2024/25 season at an estimated cost of £500 million.

What will Everton's new stadium look like?

The single, double or triple-decked, fully roofed stands of the new arena will surround the field on all sides and offer a total of 52,888 seats. The lower, extended part of the stadium will have a brick, openwork facade, while the upper part of the facility will have a metal exterior, glazed on the north and south (behind the goals) sides.
