Everton's new stadium designs reveal the 'greatest home ground in English football'
American architect Dan Meis of MEIS Architects met with Everton supporters on Monday evening to provide an update to the progress of the plans for a new ground at Bramley-Moore Dock.
He met with fans at St Luke's Church, which is close to Everton's current home of Goodison Park.
Speaking at a workshop for #EFC fans @Meisarch confirms the club plan to have a large home end at Bramley-Moore Dock that will hold 12-15k based on Dortmund’s ‘Yellow wall’ depending on final capacity.

Meis spoke on the issue of capacity. While 99% of Evertonians want 50k plus, he is cautious of 60k. Says he believes in scarcity and the importance of selling out a venue. He pointed out that the last 10k seats in a stadium are the most expensive and bring in the least revenue. pic.twitter.com/yQyDeqoLbJ— Christopher Beesley (@CBeesleyEcho) April 2, 2018
