Everton have today submitted plans to expand the fan zone at Goodison Park, meaning more fans will be able to access the popular attraction.

Due to the zones popularity amongst match goers the club want to expand the zone outwards towards the car park, the application submitted also states that the club want to replace the existing stage that is in place.

As well as the extension to the fan zone, the plans also say that a small building will be built behind the stage for performers.

The club posted this news on the website, which reads: “Hosted by Giulia Bould and open from three hours before kick-off, each match their will be live music courtesy of local bands, great giveaways, as well as regular appearances from former players and other star names.”

This is another statement of intent from the club.

The Toffees are still pushing ahead with plans to build their new home ground on Bramley Moore Dock with the hopes of having it ready for the 2023/24 season.

The stadium will be designed by MEIS architects who hope to make the stadium look like it has “risen from the docks” in reference to the cities maritime past.

For now though Everton are still focusing on their current home. The club also hope to submit the legacy plans for Goodison Park and the surrounding area before the end of 2019.

They are also waiting on the new plans for the fan zone to be approved on by the council.
