GFE Feasibility Study for Redeveloping Goodison Park
A New Goodison Park

Despite the tradition, the history, the heroes, the memories and the achievements of Everton Football Club, the current Ground at Goodison Park is outdated, outmoded and from the outside looks more like an industrial complex than an exciting entertainment venue.

The main criticisms of the Ground could be summarised as:

  • inadequate capacity
  • inadequate facilities
  • low income generation
  • high maintenance costs
  • continually upgrading to achieve safety requirements.

A new stadium on the existing site would not only remain as the true focal point to continue the tradition of Everton as a Football Club, it would also ensure that Everton maintain their reputation as being at the forefront of innovative stadium development that has been their hallmark for over 100 years.

A new Stadium would provide:

  • a national and international venue
  • a capacity of 50 000 on the existing footprint
  • kudos for the Club and the City of Liverpool if it was rebuilt – as a new Stadium – on the present site
  • excellent uninterrupted views for all spectators
  • safe, comfortable and convenient facilities for all spectators
  • significantly increased opportunities for income generation
  • a new ground that would incorporate the traditional features of Goodison Park and help provide instant loyalty
  • an exciting new building, designed to fit an urban area with a scale that relates to the surroundings
  • a development that could kickstart the regeneration of the local community and local economy
  • a football club that remains the focus of the local community and part of the local fabric – physically, commercially – and socially
  • a development that would receive support from the City and the Community, and therefore access to additional funding sources.
