Everton's upcoming fixture against Hull City will be given a retro twist to celebrate football of days gone by.
The game, on Saturday 19 October (3pm), will see Roberto Martinez's men attempt to extend their formidable home record against the Premier League newcomers.
And there will be a range of retro-themed events from the 1960s, 70s and 80s before and during the fixture, to add to the atmosphere of the Goodison Park game.
The 1960s were hugely significant for Everton; it was a decade in which fans saw the emergence of the Holy Trinity, an FA Cup win in 1966, a sixth First Division Championship title in 1963 and the introduction of the Club’s iconic Z Cars anthem.
In the 1970s, the Blues secured their seventh First Division Championship title and the 1980s brought the Club’s most successful decade yet, with Everton winning two further First Division Championship titles in 1985 and 1987, an FA Cup in 1984, and of course, the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1985.
To celebrate these momentous occasions, the Club will be holding a raft of activities - all with a retro theme.
The matchday programme will be specially produced in a 1960s style and there will be some classic highlights played out on the big screens before kick-off.
In the Fan Zone there will be a sixties tribute band, retro snacks and giveaways and before the match there will be a Players’ Parade featuring Blues stars from yesteryear, including fans’ favourites from the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s.
The Blues will also be running a competition to find an adult Everton Toffee Lady to throw sweets into the crowd – in honour of Molly Bushell, the original Toffee Lady.
The Club is urging all Blues fans to dig out their retro shirts and scarves for the match, and we're keen to see your Everton photos from this era. Email them to or post them on social media using #EFCretro.
The official Everton Twitter and Facebook pages are also the place to leave your suggestions for the matchday music, again, please use the #EFCretro hashtag.
There are plenty more fun activities to be announced soon so secure your tickets now by going online here, calling 0871 663 1878* or visiting either the box office, Everton Two or the Ticket Quarter in Queen Square.
