Stadium Survey Results

Your opinions on the ground move debate

We put together the most detailed survey on the opinions of Evertonians regarding the stadium debate thus far and asked for your thoughts on a number of the issues and options involved.

2,689 people responded to the survey and even allowing for a margin of error more than 1,00 of them are eligible to vote in the Kirkby Project ballot. We would like to thank each one of you for taking the time.

The collated results, with duplicate entries removed, are below. If there is a metric not provided below for which you would be interested to see the results, please notify the Webmaster

Notes:

  • Where percentages don't total 100%, the remainder accounts for "no response given" (none of the questions were mandatory)
  • The results are split by those eligible (blue bars) and those ineligible (orange bars) to vote in the upcoming ballot on the Kirkby project.

Footnotes Due to a programming errors:
  • Question 11, asking whether the artist's impressions of the proposed stadium had changed the respondent's view on the move to Kirkby, returned no results and is therefore not shown above.
  • Question 15 concerning stadium capacity returned 45,000 for the option labeled 40,000 so the results for those two capacity options have been merged into one "45,000 or less" result
