Everton’s Fan Advisory Board poses questions over 777 takeover

The Everton Fan Advisory Board (FAB) has published a list of questions and concerns raised by supporters regarding the proposed takeover of the club by 777.

The FAB hosted a fan engagement session on Thursday 28th September with supporters and that feedback was collated into a series of questions relating to 777’s funding, investment partners, multi-club ownership model and more.

FAB chair Dave Kelly said: “I’d like to thank Evertonians for giving up their time to attend the meeting and provide feedback. At what is a critical time for our club, it’s clear that there are a number of questions that the fanbase has about this proposed deal.

“A wide range of issues were raised, including 777’s overall strategy and plan for success at Everton, financial security and the implications for the development and ownership of the new Everton Stadium and ensuring that the highest quality leadership is in place.

“We shared the questions with 777 last Friday (6th October) and asked them to respond at the earliest opportunity. We would encourage them to share their responses with the wider fanbase in line with their stated commitment to engage with Everton’s fanbase.”

Key FAB questions:

  • 777 have spent around €800-900m acquiring stakes in seven clubs and all those clubs are making a loss. What is 777’s strategy to ensure Everton do not follow the same path?
  • Will 777 commit to ensuring Bramley-Moore Dock will remain an asset of Everton FC and will not be sold off, only to be leased back to the club?
  • How confident are 777 of passing through the regulatory approval requirements set out by the Premier League / FA?
