Most away fans gather along Drayton Park for a pre-match pint in pubs near the south-east corner of Emirates Stadium. The Stadium has a colour-coding system for different areas – away fans should head for the green quadrant. From Drayton Park you can access the away turnstiles via the South Pedestrian Bridge.

Everton Football Club does not condone the use of pyrotechnics under any circumstances. Any fan found using them will be subject to action by the Club and the Police. Being convicted of using a pyrotechnic could also result in a jail sentence. As a Club, we will also impose an indefinite ban on anyone caught using pyrotechnics.
As well as the risk of a ban or conviction, the devices have a serious effect on others, particularly those with breathing difficulties and the disabled who cannot easily get away from the smoke.
We have noticed an increase of persistent group “bouncing” and “throwing of items”, including beer and items being thrown into the air. This has happened at both home and away games.
Although it has only involved a small minority of fans, it has resulted in both the Club and the Police receiving complaints from supporters who have become soaked in beer or have been hit by items thrown. This is anti-social behaviour and people should not have to put up with this. As a consequence, both the Club, Merseyside Police and supporters’ groups have discussed how this should be addressed.
Firstly, both the Club and the Police want to make it clear that we want ALL our supporters to enjoy their day and we understand that this may include singing and an element of “bouncing” as a group.
However, a decision has been made that should home or away fans participate in the throwing of alcohol or any other items in any area of the stadium, they will be dealt with by Match Day Stewards with the full support of Merseyside Police Officers. This could culminate with an ejection from the ground or potentially an arrest, dependent on the specific circumstances.
This season, you will see more stewards and Police Officers on concourses, who will provide early advice should a situation look like it is getting out of control.
Please continue to enjoy the match but we ask that you also consider other supporters and how they will be affected by your behaviour and we ask for your support in this. Thank you.
