Liverpool has been stripped of its UNESCO World Heritage status due to developments on the city’s waterfront, including the new Everton Stadium at Bramley Moore Dock.
The decision was made following a vote by members of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in China.
A report released in June by the committee said developments on the city’s waterfront had resulted in “an irreversible loss of attributes.”
Liverpool received World Heritage status in 2004, joining sites such as the Taj Mahal and the Great Wall of China.
Everton declined to comment when contacted by Sky Sports News for an answer.
