​Everton hoping to turn new Bramley Moore stadium into a 'fortress'

Everton are hopeful that their new Stadium which is set to be complete by 2022 will prove to be a 'fortress' for the Toffeess.

Everton's new home at Bramley Moore is scheduled to be completed by 2022 and the club's chief executive Robert Elstone revealed to the Toffees' Annual General Meeting on Tuesday that they are hoping the new stadium will become a fortress for the club.

He said: "The plan is to kick off at the new stadium in 2022. I want the stadium to be a fortress. I want to make it a home that is loved and adopted quickly. It needs to reflect the values of the people's club, with the club committed to affordable pricing.

"We will not be leaving Liverpool 4. It has to be the right deal for the city and acts as a springboard for the regeneration of Liverpool. Much work, time and resource has gone into advancing the stadium project over the past 12 months. But, there is much still to do.

"And if there was one enduring message to take away from tonight it is that whilst we are fully committed, and optimistic, there are still hurdles for us to overcome. Not least, securing all the money needed for what will be a huge financial commitment with very long-term consequences."
