Everton want to challenge for the Premier League title at their proposed new stadium. The club is working hard on the plans for their new stadium and it is anticipated that he planning application for the Toffees’ proposed £500m Bramley-Moore Dock Stadium will be submitted later in 2019.
Toffees chief executive Denise Barrett-Baxendale has claimed that the new stadium is needed for Everton to return to the elite of England. “It means challenging for domestic titles and trophies,” she said. “Not only to win cups but to win Premier League titles too.” Everton’s last title was won in 1987.
Barrett-Baxendale was appointed chief executive in May 2018 and she sacked manager Sam Allardyce and director of football Steve Walsh only 24 hours later. The club appointed Marco Silva as the new manager, while Marcel Brands moved in as the new director of football from PSV Eindhoven.
Earlier this week the club announced that Brands has been enhanced, putting him in charge of Everton’s complete football strategy for the coming years. “Marcel is now accountable for delivering the long-term, holistic football strategy and principles from the academy through to the first team.”
