Everton could be now forced to sell new Bramley-Moore Dock stadium, arrangement to become tenants mooted
Everton could be forced to sell their new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock if they’re relegated from the Premier League, according to Ian Herbert.
The Daily Mail columnist wrote on Tuesday (4 April) that in a bid to claw back some of their cash if they do drop into the Championship, the Blues may end up becoming tenants in their own new stadium.
Everton’s 2021/22 financial results were released last week, causing serious worry among the club’s fanbase.
And it seems that selling off a stadium that hasn’t even been build yet, to then rent it, is an option.
“One of the bitter ironies for those fans is that the new Everton Stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock – the face of the club’s future for so long – could become someone else’s, if relegation does come. One scenario is that it would be sold to raise cash and an arrangement reached by which Everton would become the tenant,” said Herbert.

This isn’t a nightmare – it’s real.
Everton’s financial situation is absolutely dire and while everyone is out there pointing their fingers at Bill Kenwright – there should be way more anger directed at Farhad Moshiri.
We understand why people want Kenwright out. But Moshiri is getting away with the slow murder of one of England’s finest football clubs.
Moshiri’s recklessness and failure to manage a business is causing Everton to haemorrhage cash.
The Blues’ lacklustre efforts behind the scenes have seeped onto the pitch because the inability to invest in the squad has led to the squad being short of the required quality to stay in the Premier League.
But is less money being spent on a squad that’s worse than before Moshiri arrived? Is it heck.
Moshiri will continue to throw money at problems without, seemingly, any thought about whether he can afford to use that money in the terms of the Premier League’s rules.
If we go down, we’re absolutely done for.
