On the latest #EvertonBusinessMatters podcast before the release of images and the start of the second public consultation I offered the thought that we would know a huge amount more about our club in the coming days….

The more things change, the more they stay the same…..

Much has been spoken about Everton’s approach to this transfer window, the first full summer window for which Brands & Silva will have had the opportunity to plan well in advance. Whatever plans they have must be put into the context of Everton’s financial position. Therefore, I thought it useful to look at what’s occurred […]

World Heritage Status….time to say what we (all) mean and mean what we say

How long have UNESCO been threatening to remove World Heritage Status from the Liverpool – Maritime Mercantile City? The answer is almost half the time we’ve “enjoyed” the status.

The Bramley-Moore business model will stretch “affordable” ticketing policies

Everton extend their existing relationship with Fanatics

Our long relationship with Fanatics (previously Kitbag) goes back 10 years, with our existing contract running out in May 2019.   The original contracts were negotiated at a very different time for the club. Whilst we had relative stability on the pitch, financially we were in difficult times with our retailing being loss making. However […]

Everton Football Club released the press release below this afternoon, summarising the findings of the “People’s Project” consultation, late last year. Unsurprisingly but nevertheless pleasingly, the consultation finds the vast majority in favour of a move to Bramley-Moore.  In keeping with the club’s extremely cautious approach to advancing the stadium application, this consultation provides responses […]

Diversification and our future growth strategy

On the 20th December 2018, Everton put forward a proposal (not decision) subject to further consultation and planning approval to design and build Bramley-Moore with an initial capacity of 52,000.
