New Everton Stadium Could Host Commonwealths

March 24, 2017

Everton’s new stadium will be a “key part” of Liverpool’s bid to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games, the city’s mayor has said.

The club announced a deal to acquire land at Bramley Moore Dock on which to build the new £300m ground on Thursday.

Mayor Joe Anderson said talks about using the stadium, which will seat 50,000, will happen “in due course”.

Liverpool were the first city to confirm their interest in replacing Durban as hosts of the 2022 Commomwealth Games, and remain strong candidates to win the right.
