'Yellow Wall' among inspirations for new Everton FC home

American architect Dan Meis has given fans of English Premier League soccer club Everton an insight into their club’s new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, in the Port of Liverpool. 

Among the planned features is a large home end in the south stand, inspired by the famous ‘Yellow Wall’ at Borussia Dortmund's ground. According to Meis, whose firm has been commissioned to design the new stadium, the stand will hold between 12,000 and 15,000 fans and will include a concourse looking back at the city.

Speaking at a fan event, Meis told Everton supporters that he hopes to create the “greatest home ground in English football” at Bramley-Moore Dock. He also shared details of how feedback from fans was influencing the ongoing work on the stadium design, as well as sharing cross-sections of early stand designs. 

In addition, Meis alluded to how elements of the existing ground, Goodison Park, could be transferred to the new stadium, and spoke of the importance of using materials linked to the history of both the city of Liverpool and Bramley-Moore Dock, such as brick and wood. 

Meis also addressed Everton’s commitment to making the new stadium a “fortress” – retaining and amplifying Goodison Park’s intimacy and atmosphere – and getting fans as close to the action as possible, as well as explaining the reasons for opting for a ‘north-south’ orientation for the new stadium. 

Further details will be revealed at subsequent fan workshops.
