Matchday Guide: Arsenal

Everton welcome Arsenal to Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon as attentions switch back to the Premier League.

The fixture will be used to celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Pink Ribbon and raise money for the Breast Cancer Care Charity, with all supporters encouraged to wear an item that is pink to support the campaign.

There is plenty to keep Blues entertained prior to kick-off at 1:30pm, so here’s a rundown of what’s going on around the ground.


With activity beginning at around 12:15pm, the FanZone is the perfect place to get in the matchday mood.

Live music comes from Gus Barrateau, while a former Blue will give his thoughts on the game after the teams are read out. 

To mark the 25th anniversary of the Pink Ribbon, we’ll have a breast cancer information stand, bucket collections and an interview with a survivor.

There will be prizes and vouchers to be won on quizzes and competitions with hosts Jennifer Jewell and Gavin Pettifor.

There is also plenty of food and drink available. Please note that Chang has been replaced with Carling ahead of the new season.


Opening at 11am, the Matchday Hub is the perfect place for younger Blues to spend their time before the big game. 

Boasting a games area, face painting, a craft session and football coaching clinics, there are also special meal deals for both children and parents.

Look out for a special display from the Heritage Society as well.


The People’s Hub Cafe is open between 5pm and 8pm. Options include chilli, scouse or curry, plus sandwiches, cakes and snacks. Tea, coffee, soft drinks and snacks are also available.


Catch the latest exhibition from the Heritage Society at St Luke’s Church on the corner of Goodison Road and Gwladys Street.


A new Everton Giant plaque in tribute to Roy Vernon, who starred for the Blues in the 1960s, will be unveiled outside the stadium at 12pm before the game.

Fans are also encouraged to head inside to the stadium early to catch all the pre-match build-up, including the Toffee Lady and player warm-up!
