Everton have confirmed the appointment of construction firm Laing O’Rourke to build the club's new stadium that will be worth £500 million with a capacity of 52,000.
The Toffees reportedly handed over plans to Liverpool city council around early December with a decision on the plans expected this summer and the building of the stadium is set to take three years.
Everton Chief Executive Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale said: “Appointing Laing O’Rourke is another important step towards delivering a new world-class waterfront stadium for Everton.
“There is still a lot of work to do on this project. Working alongside colleagues at Laing O’Rourke we will develop our construction programme
"While at the same time continuing to engage with our supporters on a number of matters as we await our planning application to be determined by Liverpool City Council.”
