............they made sure by offering cheap season tickets starting at £289. Will be interesting to see if their crowds hold up.

Half of them will be banned based on the season so far :)

Here's a mad idea:

60000 seats at 3/4 the price it cost per seat (average) now (factoring in cost of season ticket seats etc)

I think that we'd attract more fans it was cheaper than it is now. Given the additional tv funds there's less pressure on inflating seat prices.

You just design a "future proof" stadium.

50.000 growing to whatever the fuck you want. Hopefully to keep in line with growth and progression

It's that simple

I do wonder what the future holds. We know how many people used to watch football matches years ago. Ignoring the fact that standing room allowed it back then, the game is probably just as popular now as it was then so why couldn't all major clubs one day (say in 15 years time) draw crowds of 80,000 again? (Especially if the price was reduced to the equivalent of what it once was in those old days). Perhaps we will look back in years to come and saw the last 40 years as the barren spell when not many people went to watch football.

Think big from the off. Build a 80,000 seater and try to attract champion's league/Europa league finals plus any other major events. The city is growing rapidly and this will expand the city centre also with land between the stadium site. There will be a lot of kids playing FIFA and making decisions on what's most desirable. Sure we wouldn't fill it every game but big matches in Europe and lots of away support maybe?, we can always cordon off higher sections so it doesn't look empty for the time being.

Never in a million years are Everton selling 80,000 home tickets, Europe or not.

Build a stadium that can be expanded when it needs to be.

That way we don't have to cover ten thousand seats with sports direct banners, can you imagine the acoustics in an half full stadium

55000 as a starter point

One Extra side stand tier (or just extend current tier) 6000    - cap. 61000

Opposite extra side stand tier 6000     - cap. 67000

Extra End tier  4000      - cap. 71000

Opposite end tier 4000    - cap. 75000

Fill in 4 corners at 1250 each raises it to 80000


Around 25-30 rows of seats that would be.

Our advantage is we will be designing from scratch. Build a pure football stadium and design it right and 55000 can sound like 80000.

This we be good.

And in keeping with our history as we all probably know that Goodison was the first ever stadium built purely as a football stadium.
