Having progressed into the next round of the FA Cup, Everton’s clash was overshadowed by a host of important attendees.
Admittedly, they stole the focus due to the lack of interest on the pitch, but still the strong showing from 777 Partners at Goodison Park only helps to emphasise their ongoing desire to purchase the Toffees.
With controversy rife within the company, and questions arising at every corner over their financial power and ability to run a club, many argued against their legitimacy and the likelihood of them completing this drawn-out takeover. Well, the heavy presence on Merseyside should be enough to convince fans that this is happening.
In fact, as if to solidify their plans, they reportedly took a tour of the Bramley-Moore Dock stadium just hours before a new project update was dropped.
What’s the latest on Everton’s Bramley-Moore Dock stadium?
The Toffees have been relentless with their constant production of content for the new arena, given it remains one of few relentless shining lights in an otherwise dull club at the moment.
Seeing such a magnificent stadium slowly rise on the waterfront has been an enjoyable experience for the entire fanbase, and this latest update only serves to emphasise that further as the Everton Stadium account outlines a key feature being forged.
With its iconic curved roof design, at last the parts are being put in place to complete that and truly offer some shape to the impressive build.
It seems that they will be ramping up their construction in 2024, with a view to have it finished by the end of this calendar year, ready for a move-in during the 2025/26 season.
Did 777 Partners take a tour of Bramley-Moore Dock stadium?
With the Miami-based firm insisting that 777 the takeover will be ratified by the Premier League soon enough, their confidence was reinforced by this Goodison Park visit to play witness to Everton’s FA Cup win over Crystal Palace.
Although they were hardly treated to a thriller, with Andre Gomes’ stunning free-kick the only moment of quality throughout, it seems they all enjoyed a rather busy day in the run-up to the match.
That was outlined by journalist Matt Slater, who whilst attempting to discredit their ownership abilities with Standard Liege, did detail their visit to Bramley-Moore Dock.
Well, having been handed a first-hand tour of such a spectacular construction, that is only certain to boost their desire to own the club more.
After all, and as aforementioned, it remains one of the unique and outstanding selling points for a club otherwise rotten at the moment.
