Fantastic news! A great design in an iconic location - lets hope sea levels dont rise too much though.

Only way to improve it would be for Merseyrail to place a new matchday station on Boundary Street. That way fans could easily access the stadium from a rail station that is less than 500m away, with great sight lines directly from the station to the ground.

Couldn't agree more. These myopic self important muppets who would rather a 'historic' site remain a neglected eyesore forevermore. Bramley Moore is a dock that has been disused and derelict for decades and will NEVER be a functioning dock again. This will transform the area and really add to the iconic Mersey skyline. Bravo EFC.

As a lifelong Hammer, I wish the Toffees all the best, but you will miss Goodison something rotten. One of the best real football stadiums in the land. Our move might have been less painful if the promise of fans being no further from the pitch than at Upton Park was not hot air, but it’s losing all the tradition that hurts as well, because that is so much of the soul and identity of the club.

I wonder if Hammers fans would feel the same if they were in the stadiums now with West Ham doing so well? I feel like the team playing so poorly for the first few seasons definitely didn't help with the fans/stadium issue.

I have a mate who is a season ticket holder and he absolutely hated the new stadium. But I think he hated the performances and losing Payet more.

Sorry but Goodison is not past it's sell by date. It's the 13th biggest stadium in the UK (including all other sports)

It's also got a magical atmosphere in the evenings, and a well established buzz in the area on matchday

I have recently been to Brighton's modern stadium. Worse facilities in the concourse, in the middle of nowhere, no parking, terrible transport, dead outside the ground no buzz

Long time coming. I've been to Goodison many a time over the past 30 years, and even in the 80s it was a ramshackle dump, and it's only gotten worse, arguably the worst of any of the established 'big' sides.

I'm not sure they'll ever fill 52k mind, but better to have too big a stadium you can't fill than a small one you have waiting lists for. Looks lovely as well, unlike a lot of the new builds

They have more season ticket holders than Pool, and are maxed out at the limit for season tickets allowed by the PL for their ground capacity. Goodison is usually sold out, if anything 52k is conservative.

Looks good, they do need however to carefully consider the public space and amenity around the stadium and its linkage with the wider city. So many new stadiums look good but the public realm around the ground and its safe access for supporters seems at best a bolt on after thought or at worse forgotten entirely. Wembley is a prime example.

Plus it’s an opportunity for a Northern Club to create jobs. Improve the match day experience and give the blue half of Merseyside something to be proud of. However the decision is down to a Tory who disregard the north anyway and it wasn’t their idea so they can’t claim any glory. Good luck EFC and hope my team the mighty Crewe Alex get to play there one day.

Looks good, they do need however to carefully consider the public space and amenity around the stadium and its linkage with the wider city. So many new stadiums look good but the public realm around the ground and its safe access for supporters seems at best a bolt on after thought or at worse forgotten entirely. Wembley is a prime example.

Ah, but it was a proper game then when clubs were part of a community. As a blue I will massively miss Goodison but times change.

Goodison is a s***hole. I say that with absolutely no disrespect to Everton players or fans: a club with such a rich history and big fanbase deserves much better facilities than they've had to put up with for a long time. Goodison was crap back in the 80s when I started going to games, and it's only got worse since. This is good news for Everton and visiting fans alike.

Long time coming. I've been to Goodison many a time over the past 30 years, and even in the 80s it was a ramshackle dump, and it's only gotten worse, arguably the worst of any of the established 'big' sides.

I'm not sure they'll ever fill 52k mind, but better to have too big a stadium you can't fill than a small one you have waiting lists for. Looks lovely as well, unlike a lot of the new builds

They have more season ticket holders than Pool, and are maxed out at the limit for season tickets allowed by the PL for their ground capacity. Goodison is usually sold out, if anything 52k is conservative.

The heritage people don't take economics into account. They argue for heritage. It is up to politicians to decide whether the benefits of a development outweigh the heritage cost. In this case the council decided that they do, and I'm sure many people agree. This is exactly how this is supposed to work.

£500m for 15,000 extra seats and a stadium not really very big compared to others.

Everton trying to remain mediocre for the next 100 years.

£33k/extra seat, at £50/ticket that’s 666 matches to break even if those tickets are at 100% profit and there are no finance costs on the build.

This does not make commercial or sporting sense.

So many great memories of our home.Still,nothing lasts forever.New stadium looks great.Just wondering about car parking,a problem with a lot of new grounds.Or would bus from the city be better?
