Goodison Bottle Ban
No bottles in the stands for Merseyside derby.
Everton has reintroduced the ban on bottles being taken into the seated areas at Goodison Park for this month's Merseyside derby.
In a bid to protect the safety of supporters, bottled drinks will only be allowed to consumed in the concourse areas.
Supporters who buy bottled drinks inside Goodison will be able to decant their drinks into the plastic cups provided if they wish to take them to their seat.
Stadium Safety officer Dave Lewis said: "Keeping supporters safe is a top priority on matchdays and the ban on bottles for the Merseyside Derby will help the Club to reduce the risk of missiles being thrown inside the ground.
"All supporters are aware that the throwing of articles towards the pitch is strictly forbidden and any such incidents could put the Club in jeopardy of severe sanctions from the Football Association.
He added: "Any person found committing such an act will be the subject of action by the Club which may include a lifetime ban."
Supporters are also reminded that alcohol has never been permitted in the seated areas and must be consumed inside the lounges or on the concourses.
Club officials have also reminded supporters that encroaching onto the field of play at anytime during their visit to Goodison Park will result in similar sanctions.
Meanwhile, enhanced CCTV capability will be in operation on the day of the game with some members of the Everton stewarding team also wearing body worn cameras for the first time to identify any supporter in breach of the stadium regulations.
