A football trip to Everton is practically a journey back in time, which will be an amazing experience! Everton, one of the two professional football clubs of Liverpool, was established in 1878. The club is one of the clubs of the Founding Members of the Football League, which is currently known as the Premier League. The club won this competition in 1891. A nice detail of the club’s history is that Everton was established earlier than the other Liverpool club: Liverpool FC. Anfield Road was even the first stadium of Everton, but the club moved to Goodison Park – their current stadium – after a fight with the owner of the stadium. The owner of the stadium successfully founded Liverpool FC.
Everton’s peak seasons were in the eighties under Howard Kendall’s leadership, they won the national title twice, the FA Cup and the Europa Cup II. Everton is a top club which tries to conquer a spot in the Europa League every year. Everton’s ambitions are always visible. Investments in the team were made last year in order for them to climb to the top. Are you interested in a football trip to Everton? This is the moment!
The stadium of Everton, Goodison Park, has a capacity of 40.000 and is a very ambient stadium. Plans for a new and bigger stadium adjacent to the river Mersey are already afoot, which will get a capacity of 52.000. Everton’s supporters are known to be heated fast and cheer the club on by singing every match. A football trip to Everton is therefore certainly worth a visit and isn’t less ambient than a match of their big brother Liverpool FC.
You’re either dressed in red or in blue in Liverpool: you either love Liverpool FC or Everton. ‘The Blues’ is not the only nickname of Everton. The blue club from Liverpool is also known as The Toffees. This name was created because of the candy shop Mother Nobblet’s. This shop used to sell candy in Everton style: Everton Mint and Toffees. Many supporters went to the candy shop after a home match to buy Everton Mints and Toffees. The shop was also used as a meeting spot before and after a match. Everton got associated with this candy shop, due to all Everton supporters visiting the shop. This is how the famous nickname The Toffees emerged.
