As the £500 million project nears completion, a stunning allegation has been made about the new Everton stadium.
Everton’s new stadium, according to reports, has the potential to become the decade’s version of New York City’s world-famous Guggenheim Museum.
The Blues are planning to construct a state-of-the-art 52,000-seat stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, with the club hoping to begin playing games there in 2023-24.
Everton’s £500 million stadium project has been approved by Liverpool City Council, and the club is now awaiting official clearance before starting construction.
Professor Michael Parkinson of the University of Liverpool has claimed that if the club follows through on their plans, the Blues’ new home on the Mersey will become a global architectural symbol, similar to the Guggenheim in New York.
Professor Parkinson said on the Constructive Voices podcast, “We were kidding previously that I support Liverpool and that I am a Red.”
“I believe our owners have done a wonderful job for the club, but they’ve made a few strategic errors.”
“Everton Football Club may not have had the same success as Liverpool Football Club, but they are more committed to the city than we are.”
“Their development ambition is truly incredible. If they pull it off, I believe it has the potential to become a world leader; that is the significance of this.
“I’m sure we can all think of some cheap and cheerful football stadiums where you could as well be shopping in Tesco.”
“They don’t have a soul or a quality; you can’t defend them because they exist.” They are modern and provide parking.
“If they pull it off, I believe it will be a different kettle of fish.” They won’t pull it off unless they pull it off, and if they do, it’ll be the Guggenheim of the 2020s.
“If they pull it off, everyone will come to see how they did it.”
“I believe they will, and I hope they do.” The summary comes to a close.
