A meeting between Liverpool Football Club and Everton Football Club about the idea of ground sharing a new stadium on Stanley Park is looking more likely, according to Everton chairman Bill Kenwright.
Liverpool legend and club ambassador Kenny Dalglish hinted in the Mail on Sunday at the weekend that the club could be open to groundshare talks, with financial problems halting their aim to build a new home.
Dalglish had said, “Whoever is in a position of responsibility at Liverpool and Everton are only custodians for the next generation of supporters.
“They owe it to the fans to look at every possibility to help their respective clubs.”
Kenwright says he is interested to hear the Reds’ ideas on the idea and hopes a meeting is not too far away.
He told ESPN, “In the past Liverpool have always been opposed so I am intrigued about what Kenny Dalglish has had to say about ground sharing.
“It is more than likely we would sit down and have a decent discussion about ground sharing in Stanley Park with Liverpool.”
It is thought Liverpool City Council are keen for stadium plans to go ahead, to make the city part of England’s World Cup 2018 plans, should they win the bid.
There is a great article from Well Red magazine today looking at both sides of the groundshare argument.
