The 2025–2026 season will mark Everton’s official move to a new stadium at Bramley–Moore Dock. Due to logistical and commercial concerns, as well as input from supporters, the mid-season move was not done.

The Toffees had reserved the right to move in during the 2024–25 season, but that will now be the last complete season at Goodison Park.

When will the new Everton stadium open?

The 2025–2026 season will mark Everton’s relocation to their new stadium on Bramley–Moore Dock. The new field’s construction is scheduled to be completed by 2025, having begun in 2017 and with everything going according to plan.

As of January 2024, 777 has contributed more than £160 million to help with various expenses, including the building of the new stadium. The Financial Conduct Authority has given them the go-ahead, but they still need to wait for the Premier League to decide whether to accept their takeover offer. That decision is anticipated to be announced in February 2024.

What is the capacity of the new Everton stadium?

The current dock will be filled with reclaimed sand from the River Mersey, and Everton’s proposed new stadium will be a bowl design with a projected capacity of 52,888, made of steel and glass.

The South Stand has been constructed with a high profile and will accommodate 13,000 seats along with spaces designated for standing.

New Everton stadium design

The stadium for Everton will be a bowl built above the River Mersey using masonry, steel, and glass. The distinctive cross latticework that adorns the Bullens Road stand of the ground, designed by Goodison Park architect Archibald Leitch, is honoured in the pattern of the stadium’s brick base.

Archibald Leitch, the architect of Goodison Park, created the unique cross latticework that graces the Bullens Road stand of the pitch. The brick base of the stadium pays homage to this design.

The nautical structures in the dock area around this design were meant to serve as inspiration.

Plans include for the construction of a multipurpose health centre, a young entrepreneurial zone, locations for professional and financial services, eateries, cafes, bars and takeaway. It is anticipated that the improvements will result in up to 15,000 new jobs, draw more than a million tourists annually, and add roughly £237 million to society’s worth, a report in Give Me Sport suggests.
