    Everton's new stadium is coming to life as new photos from inside the site emerge.

    Work on the new 53,000-seater stadium, located on Liverpool's Bramley Dock, is expected to be completed ahead of the 2024/25 season, at a cost of around £550million. Photos uploaded to Everton's website show cranes, vans and diggers at work where the pitch is going to be.

    Some of the seats have also been installed, giving fans a glimpse at what the ground will look like once everything is finished. The stadium will have a single tier stand that will seat 13,000 fans and is designed to be as close to the pitch as possible.

    Snaps of the steep stand emerged on social media, drawing comparisons to the notoriously-steep 'Yellow Wall' inside Dortmund's Westfalenstadion.

    The ground's 53,000 capacity will make it the sixth-largest in the Premier League, behind Old Trafford, the London Stadium, the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, the Emirates Stadium and Anfield. It'll be a significant upgrade, given that Everton's current stadium, Goodison Park, holds just 40,000 spectators.

    Will the first game at Everton's new ground be played in the Championship? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.

    Everton have spent almost their entire history playing at Goodison Park, with the first game played there, a 4-2 win over Bolton, in September 1892. Previously, the Toffees played their football on Stanley Park and, briefly, at Anfield before moving out because the rent (£240 a year) was deemed too high.

    But despite Goodison Park's rich history, Everton have acknowledged for years that a move to a bigger ground is necessary in order for the club to continue competing at the highest level. They will hope that the first football to be played in their stadium is a Premier League fixture, though this is far from certain given the Merseyside club's form over the past few seasons.

    They narrowly avoided relegation in 2022 and again in 2023, and Sean Dyche's men are currently just six points above the drop-zone. They could drop even lower in the table in the coming weeks given the fact they're facing Manchester United, Chelsea, Newcastle and league-leaders Tottenham all before Christmas.

    They also have the prospect of a points deduction hanging over them amid an ongoing investigation into breaches of Financial Fair Play.
