A survey has been distributed to fans concerning the proposed stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock on the Mersey that would hold 55,000 fans.
Life of luxury
Aspects such as ticketing, hospitality and refreshments were included in the survey, as well as plans for safe standing.
According to the Liverpool Echo, an American-style viewing experience could be an option in the stadium’s hospitality section.
The ‘four-seat loge’ concept involves a specific section of the stand being modified to include four-seat groups with a televison screen in front of them.
The loge style of seating has become popular in US stadiums and would be a UK first.
Everton are awaiting a response from Liverpool City Council about their latest planning submission.
If accepted, the club can begin construction on the site in early 2021. The stadium would be finished in three years.
The Bramley Moore ground could cost about £500 million and would see Everton leave what has been their home since 1892.
Stadium plans under fire
The move, as always with the Toffees, hasn’t been plain sailing.
In September, the stadium plans were challenged by Historic England, claiming it would harm the city’s heritage, as reported by the BBC.
Historic England, a public body that preserves England’s historic environments, said it could cause “substantial harm” to the area.
The dock sits in Liverpool’s World Heritage Site and is part of the city’s Maritime Mercantile City.
Everton’s stadium development director Colin Chong said the ground would provide a significant boost to the local economy and up to 15,000 jobs.
In an email to fans, he wrote: “The local public has told us – in huge numbers – they believe the public benefits of our plans far outweigh the suggested level of harm to the heritage assets.”
