“Our new home on the waterfront will not only be a fantastic new stadium for Everton but it will also kick-start a £1bn regeneration of North Liverpool.”

Denise Barrett-Baxendale, Chief Executive Officer, Everton Football Club

“Liverpool City Council is fully committed to working with the Club to deliver what will be an iconic new football stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock. The opportunity for Everton’s new home to play a key role in the regeneration of an area of the city which holds incredible potential is very exciting.”

Joe Anderson, Mayor of Liverpool

“We know that a world-class stadium, on the banks of the River Mersey, will act as a trigger for even more investment and jobs which will be of huge benefit to the Liverpool City Region.”

Ian Pollitt, Assistant Project Director, Liverpool Waters

“For us at Liverpool Football Club...it would be absolutely wonderful, not just for the club but for the city if the Bramley-Moore Dock area was regenerated. A rising tide lifts all ships.”

Peter Moore, CEO, Liverpool FC

“The economic contribution to the city of Liverpool through Everton’s new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, the catalytic effect it will have on surrounding neighbourhoods, and the facilitation of the equally important Goodison legacy project make this a package of inter-related projects that, when taken together, will prove a game-changer for the city. Importantly, it will further enhance the city’s international reputation for delivering major transformational projects on such a large scale.”

Iain Jenkinson, Senior Director of Planning and Development, CBRE

"What goes on at Everton Football Club in terms of community, education, young people all the way through enterprise and then into business – every aspect of the local community Everton see themselves at the centre of and they’re a real example to other clubs."

Richard Scudamore, Executive Chairman of the Premier League

"Placing the new Everton Football Club stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, the most northern of the five ‘neighbourhoods’ at the Liverpool Waters project, has allowed us to revise our plans and regenerate this site much sooner than we anticipated."

Darran Lawless, Development Director Peel Land and Property

“The stadium would be a very welcome impetus to the local economy and I look forward to it moving forward."

Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England

“The transformation to the city will be on a remarkable scale – and that transformation will be beamed across the globe every time we play a home game. I’m sure there will be no better backdrop to a stadium in the country.”

Colin Chong, Stadium Development Director, Everton FC

“Liverpool has been building up to move to an equal footing with Manchester in recent years and the waterfront development is the missing piece of the puzzle. It’s a catalytic development for Liverpool.”

Colin Thomasson, Executive Director, CBRE

“I believe that the historic fabric of the dock is a priceless asset that will help inform a state-of-the-art stadium unlike any other on the planet and one that will capture the magic and memory of Goodison Park.”

Dan Meis, Architect

“The physical regeneration the Club is contributing to Liverpool 4 is very important to us. It is all part of us putting physical buildings in the community so we can deliver our social programmes, which are growing and growing. We know having a campus around Goodison which can continue to provide a social benefit is very, very important."

Richard Kenyon, Chief Executive Officer of Everton in the Community

“A new Everton stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock would be a huge catalyst for change along the city’s North Liverpool waterfront. The opportunity to have a development in the North Docks delivering a further £1bn – as well as up to 15,000 jobs – makes this project a game-changer not just for the Club but the city.”

Joe Anderson, Mayor of Liverpool
