Everton have had their planning application for a new stadium approved by the government.
The new ground on the Bramley-Moore site needs to pass no more checks.
All that’s left to do is start building the state of the art new stadium which Everton will hope will welcome in a new era.
It will be tough to say goodbye to Goodison Park when the time comes but the club clearly feels a new ground is needed in the name of progress.
It’s a hugely exciting day for Everton fans as it’s been a long process to get here.
With Carlo Ancelotti at the helm and the fight for Champions League football next season still alive, it’s a good time to be a Toffee.
The international break means that Everton have a week off but the announcement means the fans still have something to shout about.
Here’s how the news went down on Twitter:
