Dan Meis has revealed that Everton plan to build a large home end based on Borussia Dortmund’s ‘Yellow Wall’ at their new stadium.
The American architect, whose firm have been commissioned with designing the Blues future riverside home on the banks of the River Mersey, made the statement when talking to supporters at a church, next to Goodison Park, in a fans forum workshop.

He told them one of the stands will be built to replicate the incredible atmosphere generated in Dortmund — and he insists he wants to make it the “greatest home ground in English football”.
Mr Meis said: “We’re planning on creating a very large home end in the south stand of the stadium which should be similar to Dortmund’s ‘Yellow Wall.’
“Depending on the final stadium capacity, the stand will hold 12,000-15,000 fans and we also want to include a concourse that will look back at the city, immediately by the home end that would be very cool.”

Around 150 supporters attended the first of a series of workshops, with fans who completed a survey on the stadium invited.
The new ground will be located in the Bramley-Moore Dock area of the city, with 2022 the target for completion.
Meis also insisted parts of Goodison Park could be transferred to the new stadium.
That will include bringing 1878 seats from the ground which has been Everton’s home since 1892.
