The City will benefit financially from this deal, with Everton making a significant annual contribution to Liverpool City Council revenues.
The development of a stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock presents a much-needed regeneration opportunity for North Liverpool. As part of the Atlantic Corridor regeneration priority area, the stadium will create new jobs and act as a catalyst for further development in Liverpool Waters and beyond.
The new stadium also provides an opportunity for regeneration on the Goodison Park site. We will work closely with Liverpool City Council to ensure that the City can maximise these opportunities.
- The annual contribution made by the Club will provide the Council with funds to invest in the City.
- The stadium will act as a catalyst for regeneration across the City; attracting new investment, both domestically and internationally.
- The development will link to infrastructure the City has already invested in, including the new Cruise Liner Terminal, Liverpool 2 and the Ten Streets district.
- The opening of the stadium will offer a huge boost to tourism in the City of Liverpool. 1.5m visitors per annum will come to Liverpool to see Everton Football Club. The stadium will provide an annual boost to the City of £94m Gross Value Added to its economy through hotel occupancy, retail and tourism.
- Liverpool will benefit from the creation of 12,000 jobs throughout the stadium construction process, with 3,000 permanent jobs when the project is completed.
- The development underlines the City’s ambition to be open for business and the scheme is an important part of the regeneration of Liverpool Waters, bringing world-class architecture to the waterfront.
- More than 150 volunteer opportunities will be created for Everton in the Community, generating an additional Volunteer Wellbeing Value of £2m.
- We will create a legacy for North Liverpool that brings new jobs, skills, businesses and additional development opportunities to the area.
