‘Fills me with a warm glow’: Some Everton fans erupt over club announcement

A number of Everton fans have been commenting on Twitter about the Toffees announcement regarding the preferred contractor appointed to build the club’s new stadium.

Laing O’Rourke has been chosen to build the successor to Goodison Park, a 52,000-seater stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock on Liverpool’s waterfront.

Everton are due to sign a pre-construction services agreement (PCSA) for a design-and-build contract with the organisation following a competitive procurement process.

In December 2019, the Toffees revealed their final stadium designs ahead of the submission of a detailed planning application.

Everton are currently waiting on planning permission from Liverpool City Council, with a decision expected this summer.

As confirmed by the Everton website, construction of the new stadium is expected to start later this year, subject to planning consent.

The construction period is expected to last three years, with a final construction timeline to be shared during the PCSA period.

Plenty of Everton fans expressed their joy on social media regarding the latest step in the right dimension, with the choice of preferred contractor also praised.

Here is some of the reaction:
