Everton football club has gotten government approval for the concentration of a brand new stadium which will cost the club £500 million to complete.
The Premier League club will construct the stadium which is proposed to have 52,000-seat, within Liverpool’s World Heritage site in Merseyside. It will be referred to as Bramley-Moore Dock stadium, the name of the location of the stadium.
Liverpool city council approved the construction of the proposed stadium in February before it was taken to the government of the United Kingdom for final approval.
It took the UK government almost a month to finally give Everton the go-ahead to commence the construction of the proposed stadium because the country’s government said he needed time to critically review the proposal.
Since Everton have received a written confirmation that the proposed construction of the Bramley-Moore Dock stadium can go ahead as planned, the construction is expected to commence in earnest.
According to an earlier statement from Everton, the construction of the stadium could last for over three years. The new stadium will be handed to the club for use in 2024. This means that Goodison Park which has been the home of Everton since 1892 will no longer be the home of the club in the 2024-2025 season.
As of the time of publishing this report, it has not been known what would become of the Goodison Park stadium when the Bramley-Moore Dock stadium is completed.
However, the news that Everton will have a new stadium in the next three years has been exciting most of the club’s fans and former players. They believe that the Goodison Stadium is old enough for it to be changed.
Even the current football manager of the club, Carlo Ancelotti is already looking forward to coaching Everton at the proposed stadium in 2024 even though his contract with the club will expire on Jun 30, 2024.
The 61-year-old Italian coach whose team is currently sitting on the 8th spot on the league table with 46 points in 28 games, says it would be a thing of pride to remain the coach of the Merseyside club when the club moves to Bramley-Moore Dock stadium.
“It will be a good achievement for me, of course. I think to finish the contract in 2024 you did a good job and when you did a good job the contract will not be stopped in 2024, it will continue”, Carlo Ancelotti said.
“So for sure, for the time I spend here I feel good, so I would like to stay as long as possible.”
