Drone footage of new Everton stadium emerges as roof sections added at Bramley-Moore Dock

New drone footage has shown further roof sections beginning to be added to The Everton Stadium on Bramley Moore Dock as the development of the Toffees’ new home continues.

The first roof truss had been installed in the middle of November, with principal engineer Steven Farden seeing the moment as a “really big milestone” (Liverpool Echo, 18 November).

It now appears work has accelerated with the second roof truss being lifted on 30 November, after footage from YouTube channel Mister Drone UK was released (1 December).

Getting there

The new stadium is really starting to take shape now and it could start to come together quite quickly with the roof now being constructed. The club intend on leaving Goodison Park at the start of the 2024/25 season and right now that does look realistic.

Moving to a bigger home in the centre of Liverpool will be a huge boost for the Toffees going forward and should be used as a springboard to close the gap between them and the top six clubs in the country. Everton have a huge fanbase and are one of the most historical clubs in England. They certainly have the basic requirements to compete.

A new home in the centre of one of the biggest city’s in the country will only attract more supporters to the club, which will be beneficial in the long term. What is absolutely crucial is that the Toffees don’t get relegated in the next two seasons. Having an expensive stadium in the Championship could be financially crippling for the club.
