Everton ‘punished for ambition’ after new stadium update



Everton are being “punished” for showing ambition after their dispute with the Premier League


Speaking on the latest edition of Football Insider’s Inside Track podcast, senior correspondent Pete O’Rourke claimed that the Toffees

Sources have told Football Insider (14 April) that Everton could be handed their


third points deduction or a fine over the unresolved matter regarding the


status of the costs for their new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.


The Merseysiders breached the allowed losses threshold in the three-year


period to the 2022-23 season by £16.6million and were hit with a two-point deduction last week (8 April).

The new stadium is set to cost £550million, with prospective


new owners ­777 Partners reportedly loaning the club upwards of £160million for working capital and for costs for the new venue.
