Everton Football Club's hopes of relocating to a new stadium in Kirkby have been dashed, as planning officials have knocked back proposals for their joint venture proposal with Tesco that would have included a 50,000 capacity ground.

The Chairman of Downtown Liverpool in Business Frank McKenna commented:
"This is a major blow to Everton, and also to the city's bid to host World Cup games in 2018, should England be successful in its bid to host the Finals.

"With the financial difficulties that both Everton and Liverpool face, surely there is a need for a shared stadium to be seriously debated, with the City Council taking a lead in that discussion.

"Football is of massive importance to this city, economically and culturally, and it must make sense for our teams to explore an option that, in business terms, appears to offer the best solution."
Do you agree with Frank McKenna that Everton and Liverpool should share a stadium?
Yes 70.0%
No 30.0%
