When Liverpool's new owners came in, part of the talk was that they wanted to make a 60k seater stadium.
Phase one was the main stand & slight remodel of the Kop. That made capacity 54, 074.
Phase two was the Annie road and that detailed work beginning September 2019 to add an extra 6000 general admission seats.

They have been a bit vague with phase two. 6k seats would bring it up to 60,074. But they used the phrase 6000 'general admission' seats. So it's safe to assume more corp' seats on top.
So from 60,100 anywhere up to 61k


It would be madness for us to aim for that.
We can build a 50k-55k that has easily and readily available routes to expand - that are BUILT IN to the current planning permission. An 'legal option' if you'd like.

Meiss has, thankfully, elaborated on his 61,878 tweet by saying size of crowd is not the most important aspect of creating atmosphere. Closeness to the pitch, elevation and gradient of stands etc are. He actually used the phrase "bigger is not always better".



Thats what she said

Think that it was just designed that way for the image to show the space it would take up.

Correct

Can't wait to send that to my mates and see them lose the plot.

You recently completed a survey on our 11 ‘Key Principles’ for a proposed stadium development at Bramley-Moore Dock.  
 
We are delighted to present some of our findings back to you as well as offer you the chance to attend a feedback event with Club architect Dan Meis.
 
Overall supporters have given the Key Principles their resounding seal of approval. 97% of Evertonians agreed that the Principles presented by the Club represented a ‘clear vision for the new stadium’. The Principles were also given an average satisfaction rating of 8.5/10.
 
Almost 10,000 fans have now taken part in the first series of surveys related to the stadium project, generating half a million responses. The findings from those surveys will inform an engagement programme planned by the Club over the next six months.
 
The most recent survey gave supporters the opportunity to rank the Principles and share their preferences on features they would like to retain from Goodison Park - as well as to provide feedback in areas relating to stadium design and capacity.
 
Fans ranked making the new stadium ‘A Fortress’ – a stadium that maximises atmosphere and creates a home advantage – as the most important of all the 11 Principles. 
 
Including the Dixie Dean statue at the waterfront site was ranked as an important factor by 85% of fans, who stated that by doing this - and introducing a Club museum (86%) - the new stadium would immediately be adopted as the Club’s ‘New Home’ - the Principle which was ranked second by the fans.
 
Supporters ranked ‘Being Easy to Get To And Get Home From’ as the third most important Principle, with the creation of an ‘Iconic Landmark for Liverpool’ ranked in fourth place. 
 
In terms of stadium design, more than 60% preferred a ‘square shaped’ design compared to a curved or ‘bowl’ design, with more than 80% of fans stating a preference for the corners to be ‘filled in’. 
 
Two-thirds of fans preferred that the away fans be located in a corner of the stadium, and 93% opted for the tunnel to be on the halfway line. 
 
In terms of capacity, 99% of respondents wanted the new stadium’s capacity to be 50,000 or more.
 
94% of fans said it was important to them that as part of the ‘Goodison Legacy’ there was a permanent reminder of Goodison Park retained in L4.
 
More in-depth analysis of the Key Principles survey will be presented back to fans at a series of forums that will be held with the Club’s architect, Dan Meis, during the week commencing 2 April. As you completed the survey you can register for the chance to attend one of these events by clicking here.
 
Thank you for your contribution and we look forward to hearing more from you during our continued engagement on a new home for Everton.

60k minimum, anything less is ridiculous really.

Spurs have gone from a stadium with a capacity of 36000 to 62000
West Ham 35000 to 60000

We should be doing the same, new stadium will attract new fans, more season tickets will be sold, I have no doubts that we would sell out a 60k stadium quite easily.

Population of London 9 million
Population of Metropolitan Merseyside 1.4 million.

Transient visitors to the City
London 32 million
Liverpool 2 million

It makes a difference.



Would still fill a 60k stadium, anything less stinks of small time in my opinion.

Do you think we will have a waiting list for season tickets for next season or will we be trying to flog half season tickets ?

Yes there will still be a waiting list. What I'm saying is a new ground will attract more fans, why build a 50k stadium then have to spend more money expanding it in a few years. West Ham hardly ever filled Upton Park and yet ended up with 50k season tickets sold for the new stadium, we have a larger fan base than them so I don't see any reason why we won't do the same.
