All Together Now represents the joining together of the supporters of the Keeping Everton In Our City (KEIOC) campaign and Spirit of Shankly. We are asking fans of both Everton and Liverpool Football clubs to sign this petition to urge city leaders to co-fund an independent feasibility study to evaluate the viability and potential of a new Football Quarter which would have a dramatic and far reaching economic and social impact on the areas surrounding Anfield, Goodison Park and beyond. Over the past decade, the issues surrounding both clubs’ stadia problems have not only put the regeneration of their respective communities and surrounding areas at serious risk but they have restricted the development and progress of both of clubs which are recognised as key drivers of the local and regional economy. We believe there is the potential to create a world class football quarter; an area which would maximise the commercial opportunities for both clubs and make a huge difference to the communities in the area. Commissioning the study would provide an independent assessment of the huge potential the project would have on some of the most deprived areas of the UK. This opportunity must not be ignored. Our aim is to ensure the football quarter delivers the following:

• Improvement to the urban character, public realm and transport;
• Health initiatives involving sport and training facilities;
• Education through providing pathways to higher and further education;
• Economic development as a key driver of change and growth;
• A sense of place for visitors and residents alike;
• A reinforcement of the city’s status as a world centre for football

Together we must do all we can to boost the development of our local communities and the wider city region. Action needs to be taken now. Please show your support by adding your signature today to this online petition.
