Everton appear to be taking page out of Tottenham Hotspur's book to build Bramley Moore Dock stadium
Everton appear to be targeting the kind of impact that Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium had in their locality as they make strides with their Bramley Moore Dock project.
Spurs constructed their stadium in 2019 and it’s arguably the best one in the United Kingdom and it’s not just serving the purpose of being a football field.
There have been NFL matches, boxing fights as well as music shows, to say the least, and it’s become a sporting hub in that part of town.
Recently, the Members of the Downtown in Business networking organisation met with senior Club officials and construction partner Laing O’Rourke at the Royal Liver Building for a brief about the new Everton stadium.
Frank McKenna, the Chief Executive of the organisation, said, “I was at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium a few weeks ago and you could see the impact that stadium has had on the football club, but what we are talking about here is the transformation and regeneration of north Liverpool.
“The really great thing is that the Goodison Legacy Project is leaving behind so many great facilities to support the community, and it will include employment opportunities, new careers and new things happening as a result of that stadium build.
“It’s all positive, and from an ambition and aspirational perspective, I can’t see anything happening in the UK at the moment that’s as big as this.”
It’s good to see the club seeing this stadium project from different facets and not just it being another good-looking arena.
Things will progress and we will learn more about it but thus far, the signs are looking good and taking inspiration from the Spurs plan is not a bad thing.
They’ve created a model that seems to be working for them and it’s helping them draw big-name managers and players so the same could happen at Everton in the coming years.
