Also joining the contingent is the Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson. His tweets about the new stadium location have kept everyone guessing in the last couple of months. He has also said that he expects Everton to be playing in a new stadium by 2019.

A key part of the group is American architect Dan Meis, whose firm has been contracted to design the new stadium. Meis is visiting Liverpool and his input will be crucial towards finalizing the location of the stadium.

The team is also scheduled to visit the Stonebridge Cross site. It is known that the Croxteth location is preferred by the City of Liverpool, though a riverside stadium by the docks is an overwhelming favourite for the fans.
It has also been reported that to build the stadium at Bramley Moore, there will have to be significant investment put into the site and the area for it to be prepared for a stadium installation.
