Mayor Anderson: I’m confident Everton will have a stadium within three years

Leader of Liverpool City Council Mayor Joe Anderson has shocked certain sections of the Everton faithful by declaring that he believes that Everton will have a new stadium within three years.

Hot off the heels of a joint-announcement with the club that Walton Hall Park will now be pursued, Anderson says that the club will have a stadium in Liverpool and the timescale will be quicker than most Evertonians believed would happen.

Mayor Anderson said on BBC Radio Merseyside: “I’m confident the new stadium will be up and running in three years time.

“I think there is a real acceptance by them and I’m pretty confident that within three years there will be a new stadium for Everton football club in Liverpool.”


Where do you think the new stadium will be?

  1. As Liverpool had plans approved for Stanley park, which they will no longer be taking up. Why can’t Everton go there?
