Rumours of increased capacity for new Everton stadium

Everton stadium badgeThere are rumours circulating that the capacity for a Bramley Moore Dock stadium for Everton could start at 55,000 with the potential for easily increasing that number if demand increases.

An earlier document submitted to Liverpool City Council suggested the opening capacity for the stadium would be around 50,000, but there have been hints from those close to the design process that the figure will be closer to 55,000.

Goodison Park currently has a capacity of just under 40,000 and there has been an increase in season tickets sold over recent seasons, with the stadium selling out for a record number of matches in Ronald Koeman’s first season as manager.  This year also saw the introduction of a waiting list for season ticket sales.

A move to Bramley Moore Dock would mean not just an increased capacity, but the elimination of obstructed views and improvements on corporate facilities for those who prefer to sit and eat rather than stand and cheer.

Those close to the design process also claim that the new stadium will be relatively easy to expand, with sections of the ground designed so that the roof can be easily lifted away and extra seating added.
