Toffees confirm delay to £9m project

Everton Football Club has confirmed that its £9m retail and commercial development will not open until summer 2012, having originally been set for completion this autumn.

The four storey complex, which the club hopes will increase commercial revenues whilst it continues to explore option for a new stadium, will feature corporate hospitality and offices as well as a shop, museum and café.

The Toffees felt that an office move in the middle of the current season was not ideal timing.  Everton spokesman Ian Ross said: "This has been the acknowledged target date for some time as operationally it would have been difficult to open it mid-season. All of our partners are happy with the current timetable.

"This is a complex project involving several partners which when completed will deliver a prestigious multi-use building, one which will unquestionably benefit both club and supporters."
