Everton are the latest Premier League club to announce that they are planning to build a new stadium. While the idea has been on the pipeline for a few years now, it was only recently that things stated speeding up after the club announced the appointment of a new Stadium Development Director.
While no final decision has been made on the design and capacity, fans have been promised a state of the art facility at Bramley-Moore Dock, along with the redevelopment of the surrounding area, which is expected to cost the club close to a billion pounds.
According to pictures floating on Twitter, Everton have planed a unique design feature for one of the stands in their new stadium. It appears Everton are going to take a leaf out of the books of their arch-rivals Liverpool and German giants Borussia Dortmund, and make one side of the stadium a single-tier stand emulating the Kop and the Yellow Wall.
The thing that would please Evertonians the most about the reveal, is that the single-tier stand is likely to be larger and steeper than the Kop stand at Anfield. Here’s an illustrative comparison between the Kop and Everton’s planned single-tier stand that’s been doing the round on social media:
