MSP Sports Capital funding gone in Everton update at Bramley-Moore Dock

MSP Sports Captial’s funding towards the new Everton stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock is now all used up, according to The Esk.

The Everton financial expert, who’s been featured in the Daily Mail, reported via their Twitter account (19 October) that the money provided to continue construction on the new ground has run out after the company funded the construction costs between “the end of May and September.”

US-based investment group MSP had planned to invest up to £150million in convertible debt into the Toffees after signing an exclusivity agreement with Everton, before they withdrew from talks over taking up a minority stake in the club [The Athletic, 23 August].

With those funds now being spent, it leaves the Toffees needing to fund not only their own running costs, but also find the funding to continue construction on the Bramley-Moore Dock Stadium.

The situation at Everton seems to take two steps backwards for everyone that it takes forwards and there has been very little to suggest that things are heading in a better direction currently, as all financial aspects of the club seem to be struggling.

777 Partners’ loans to the Toffees seem to be allowing the club to meet not only its operating costs but also continue construction of their new stadium, with the “sizeable loan” received from the American firm reportedly being worth £65million [Alan Myers, 16 October].

However various reports have suggested that the takeover of the Toffees by Josh Wander’s company could now be in doubt after 777 missed a crucial deadline, but the prospective new owners insist that everything in the deal remains on track [talkSport, 18 October].

Whatever happens, Everton clearly need a new source of investment sooner rather than later as currently the Toffees are just managing to keep their head above the water. With MSP’s money running out, new investment has become a necessity and sooner rather than later.

Otherwise, one aspect of the club is going to suffer, whether that be the development of the new ground or investment into players and potential points deductions on the field.
