Everton say there have been “several factors” which influenced their decision to propose a 52,000 capacity for a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.

The Blues could eventually expand a new home to 62,000 but ahead of submitting a planning application in the second-half of 2019, the club's projections are lower.

Everton's accounts this week confirmed the capacity at Goodison is now at 39,221 which would mean a move to the waterfront would see a jump of just under 13,000 extra seats.

The club have 31,282 season ticket holders, every home seat was sold at Goodison last season and there are 10,000 fans on the waiting list.

But the club's number-crunching, and the advice of external experts, has needed to factor in projections on how many of those on the waiting list would take a season ticket if offered one.

Industry insiders refer to this as the 'conversion rate' and estimations show that not all on the list would take up the offer.

At this stage, and with the club saying a new ground would have the potential to grow, 52,000 is seen as a target capacity which would be reviewed in time if the demand was proven to be there.

Seems sensible once you consider there's a high chance of safe standing legistlation being in place by the time the stadium is ready.

Meis has stated that safe standing would not increase capacity. Any future regs are likely to involve the same amount of space required for one person whether they are standing or seated.

There is a section of the ground that has been earmarked for safe-standing though.

Can't stand the fume over the capacity.

Let's get it right, build it right,  not bankrupt the team ,and not effect buying and signing players.

The club's Stadium Development Director, Colin Chong, said: “There is still much work to do as we refine our plans and seek the views of our supporters and local communities as well as bodies such as Liverpool City Council, the local planning authority and Historic England.

“At this stage, it is important to stress that this is our ‘proposed’ capacity and it is what we are currently working towards. It is important to emphasise that the final capacity and design will be subject to further engagement and consultation.”

The projected 52,000 capacity takes into account a series of factors which include design and orientation of the stadium on the Dock site, current and future ticket demand as well as forecast revenues and costs.

Everton have also confirmed that the stadium will also be “futureproofed” for any changes in regulations in relation to safe standing with the design of two stands making it easy to adopt a rail seating/safe standing solution.

Stadium architect Dan Meis said: “We know from all of the conversations we’ve had with fans that they want a stadium that is atmospheric, feels like a fortress and supports the players on the pitch. They also want the Club to be ambitious for the future.

“We believe this proposed approach to design and capacity meets with those aspirations.

“Our design and engineering approach will give us the potential to expand in the future. This will be done if and when we are at a stage where it is financially viable and fits with our key principles.”

The confirmation of the proposed capacity figure follows extensive engagement with fans and consultation with a range of advisors who have expertise in stadium design and defining the optimum capacity for new stadia.

A widespread public consultation was held into the club’s plans for Bramley-Moore Dock and the creation of a legacy at Goodison Park, in which questions on capacity of the new stadium were among the most frequently asked.

Everton say a second public consultation will be held in the summer when proposed designs of the stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock - and an initial overview of proposals for Goodison - will be presented.


The Blues intends to submit a detailed planning application for the stadium in the second half of 2019 and, at the same time, an outline planning application for the redevelopment of Goodison.

“We believe that our approach is the right one because it is commercially and financially sustainable and will mean that, in the long term, we will be able to increase the capacity should there be a demand and requirement to do so,” Chong added.

“Extensive work has gone into assessing the optimum capacity at the point of opening to create the best possible atmosphere for fans and, in turn, supporting the players on the pitch.”

Think that's piss poor to be honest. Agree 100% with the Everton Business matters lads on that one.

The question is, can the expansion to 62000 be made with seats or would that require standing sections?

I thought 55k was the magic number myself. But knew the writing was on the wall for 52k when Meis was defending it last year.

62k is genuinely batshit crazy.
