The hospitality lounges at Premier League Soccer side Everton FC’s Goodison Park will be refurbished this summer where all of the stadium’s suites and event spaces will be upgraded.
Following the team’s final home game of the season, work will commence on the multi-million dollar renovation project where the appearances and audio-visual equipment of all premium lounges will be improved, however there will be no change to member seating allocation or lounge capacity.
As part of the project, the club will test out and showcase new hospitality concepts ahead of the proposed move to a new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock.
“The exciting new concepts we have created are uniquely Everton and will be a test bed for themes as well as an opportunity to expand the appeal of our hospitality experiences in the future,” said Oliver Wright, head of hospitality and sales at Everton FC.
“This project will help us bring Goodison Park’s hospitality offer up to a level which reflects the aspirations of the Club. The refurbishments to all our lounges will enhance the experience for Members and demonstrate what our approach to hospitality at a new stadium could be like.”
The Brian Labone Lounge will be modernized with new furniture, audio-visual screens and enhanced lighting giving members most sought-after lounge a premium environment.
The ultimate matchday experience will be offered in The Dixie Dean Suite. The club’s exclusive, fine dining lounge will benefit from a modernized fit-out and a newly positioned bar.
For organisations who have invested in matchday sponsorship packages, the club’s Sponsor’s Lounge will see a more futuristic makeover. New modern furniture and audio-visual equipment will be installed as well as a new entrance to the lounge which will improve access on matchdays.
The club’s more informal lounges, The People’s Club and The Captains’ Table will both benefit from an upgrade creating a ‘sports bar’ feel with industrial textures, modern loose furniture, better positioned big screens and colourful Everton graphics. The new brushed concrete flooring will see both lounges pay homage to Goodison Park’s concourses and the raised uplifted ceilings will give both refurbished spaces an airier feel. The People’s Club will have an island feature bar.
The Club has worked with architectural firm 2M2 Studio for delivering the designs of all nine hospitality lounges at Goodison Park.
