History of Goodison Park

Located in the Walton district of Liverpool, England. Goodison opened in 1892 and is the oldest, and 12th largest, stadium in the Premier League.

Everton moved to Goodison Park from Anfield in 1892. Anfield was originally the home of both Everton and Liverpool, but the two clubs split in 1892 over a dispute about rent. Everton moved to Goodison Park, which was owned by John Houlding, who had also been the owner of Anfield.

Originally built with a capacity of 100,000, but this was reduced to 39,414 in the 1990s following Hillsborough, Goodison was designed by Archibald Leitch, who was also the architect of Old Trafford and Highbury and involved in part in many of the most famous UK stadium’s designs.

Everton are in the process of constructing a new stadium at Liverpool’s famous waterfront on Bramley-Moore Dock.

The new stadium will be a 52,888 capacity stadium incorporating elements of the club’s legacy whilst also being a mechanism for improved ways to generate income for the club.
