Everton to propose stadium capacity of 52,000 at Bramley-Moore Dock

Everton will propose a ground holding 52,000 when they submit a planning application for Bramley-Moore Dock next year according to an announcement made today.

That conservative figure would represent an increase of over 12,000 on the present seating capacity of Goodison Park but it is significantly smaller than the 60,000 mark that has proven to be the most popular number during informal polling of supporters.

The proposal will provide for expanding the stadium to 62,000 at a later date, a possibility that previously wasn't thought to be open to the club given the constraints of the site.

"It is important to stress that this is our 'proposed' capacity and it is what we are currently working towards," said stadium director Colin Chong.

"We believe that our approach is the right one because it is commercially and financially sustainable and will mean that, in the long term, we will be able to increase the capacity should there be a demand and requirement to do so."
