Where will 'Everton Stadium' be located?
The Everton Stadium is being constructed on the site of Bramley-Moore Dock in North Liverpool. The site for the new stadium is around two miles away from the Club's current Goodison Park home and just under 1.5 miles from the Royal Liver Building in Liverpool City Centre.
When will the stadium open?
Everton received planning approval from Liverpool City Council in February 2020 and formally broke ground at Bramley-Moore Dock in August 2021. Construction of the new stadium is planned to take at least three years.
What will the new stadium be called?
Everton is working to secure a naming rights partner for the new stadium. Until this time, it will be known as 'Everton Stadium'.
What will be the capacity of the new stadium?
The Club is currently working to a capacity of 52,888, the exact and final figure will be confirmed in due course.
Will the new stadium offer facilities for fans before and after matches?
A number of public spaces have been created around the stadium to ensure the best experience for fans and visitors to Everton's new home. The Fan Plaza, a space the same size as the city's St George's Hall plaza, could accommodate more than 9,000 people and will be the focus for pre-and post-match outdoor entertainment and activity. The Everton Stadium will also host a range of traditional pubs, bars, high-street style restaurants and fine-dining spaces, offering pre-and-post-game facilities on matchday.

Will the new stadium be used for concerts and other events?
While the stadium is first and foremost a football stadium, there will be an opportunity to host other events. This could be anything from outdoor concerts featuring international recording artists and other major sporting events to large conferences and small community meetings. The area set aside for the Fan Plaza, behind the East Stand, and the stepped terrace behind the West Stand, will also both lend themselves to different outdoor year-round uses.
How does the stadium comply with sustainability and environmental matters?
Everton intends to harness the unique features of the dock location to create the most environmentally friendly and sustainable stadium in the Premier League; A stadium which is environmentally efficient in design, construction and operation.
Extensive work has been carried out with our construction partners, Laing O’Rourke, to ensure we minimise our carbon footprint throughout the construction period and beyond.
A range of environmental issues have been implemented,, including: carrying out extensive ecological surveys; ensuring marine life in the dock was removed before emptying the dock of water; ensuring the stadium has excellent noise insulation so residents and businesses nearby are not affected by crowd noise; putting in place flood mitigation measures to protect the stadium and surrounding area; ensuring sympathetic lighting treatments which showcase heritage and architectural features, but do not cause undue light pollution and monitoring air quality during and after construction.
In-stadium measures include; generating electricity from solar panels; installing a water source heat pump; harvesting rainwater for use in toilets and the provision of charging facilities in the car park for electric and hybrid vehicles.
Is there provision to increase capacity at the new stadium?
Yes, The stadium is 'future-proofed' to enable the introduction of safe-standing which, should Government legislation change on the ratio of one person standing to one seat, could allow the Club to increase the capacity further.
Does that mean the stadium will offer safe standing?
The design of the lower North and South stands allows for the adoption of safe standing, with rail seating to be available in these locations from when the stadium opens. The design also allows for future changes in legislation if the ratio of spectators to seats increases.
How will supporters travel to the stadium?
Everton Stadium is easily accessible through public transport. It is anticipated that the majority of supporters will use public transport to attend games and other events at the stadium.
Regular shuttle busses will run from Liverpool City Centre and Bootle Town Centre direct to Everton Stadium.
Sandhills Train Station is in proximity to the stadium and connects to Liverpool city centre stations, Southport, Ormskirk, Kirkby and south Liverpool. The Club is working with Merseyrail in discussing upgrading Sandhills Station, to cater for the expected rise in passengers on matchdays.

Club officials will continue working with Merseytravel and other independent transport providers to maximise efficient travel options to and from Everton Stadium.
Will car parking be available at the stadium?
Parking at the stadium will be limited. Spaces at the West Quay car park will be available for disabled supporters, as well as supporters who have a parking permit in advance of the match taking place.
The car park will include charging bays for electric vehicles for use by fans, staff and visitors to the site on both match and non-match days. Working with Liverpool City Council, the Club will establish parking restrictions to prevent parking on local streets which would negatively affect residents and businesses. Private parking facilitated by licensed operators will be created in the local vicinity. Further details on the parking strategy are still being developed, in consultation with residents and businesses.
