Everton granted permission to expand Goodison Park facilities

Tue 16th Nov 2010 | Football Stadiums & Facilities

Everton Football Club has today been granted planning permission to build a £9million state-of-the-art retail and administration development on the existing Goodison Park footprint.

The new facility will be built on the site of the Club Everton lounge at the Park End of the stadium and will house a 900 square metre retail store, museum, cafe, a fan-focused hospitality lounge and office space.

The four-floor, self-funded project will also free up space within the corporate areas of Goodison, meaning that capacity for corporate hospitality inside the stadium itself can be expanded.
 
Chief Executive, Robert Elstone, told evertonfc.com:  “The new building is an exciting phase in the development of Goodison Park. 

“It will help us grow our business by giving fans a new, purpose-built Club shop more than twice the size of Everton One, a new hospitality lounge targeted towards Evertonians wanting to socialise before and after games at Goodison and, at last, a proper home for the Everton Collection and other exciting attractions for our fans. 

“It will also get the entire Everton team under one roof, something that is long overdue and an opportunity to further improve how we work as a team for the benefit of the fans.”

Work will start before the end of the year and is expected to be completed in Autumn 2011. The project will be paid for entirely through the assistance of existing Club retail partner Kitbag and Stadium catering partner Sodexo.

Mr Elstone added: "This new scheme is totally self-funded by partners so there is no net cost to the Club. In fact, it is cash-positive from the start.”
