Alternative stadium plans on show
Goodison Park
The fan group has worked with local architects on the plans
Everton fans against plans to move the club outside Liverpool have revealed their own alternative design for a stadium within the city's borders.

The club released images of their new 55,000-capacity stadium, proposed to be built at Kirkby, Knowsley, last month.

But fan group Keep Everton In Our City (KEIOC) and local architects have come up with some alternatives.

The first design, for a revamped stadium at Goodison Park, is on show at St George's Hall on Friday.

The display is open from 1000 to 1700 BST.

KEIOC said the Goodison Park revamp is their Plan B, but that they also have a Plan C.

The group has said Plan C will be revealed shortly.

Other plans proposed by the group include building stadiums on sites already earmarked by the city council.

Liverpool City council leader, and Evertonian, Warren Bradley has said he thinks the club can still stay in the city.

Last month, he said that he had been working with the club, commercial partners and supporters to come up with alternative sites.

Mr Bradley revealed two proposed sites in the Liver Industrial Estate in Walton.

Another put forward is on land near Scotland Road. A fourth is on the Axis site in Speke and the fifth is a redevelopment of the Goodison Park site.

A ballot on plans for the Kirkby development is due to be held among the supporters and Everton's chief executive Keith Wyness said the results would determine whether the club stays in the city or goes.
