Matchday Guide: Everton v Sunderland
Everything you need to know ahead of our Boxing Day game.
When Sunderland visit Goodison Park on Boxing Day there will be plenty going on - and not just on the pitch!
Of course, watching the Blues attempt to secure three vital festive points - and potentially go top of the Barclays Premier League table - is the main attraction.
But, around the ground and inside the stadium, there will be plenty of activities taking place both before and after the game to enhance your matchday experience.
|There will be fun in the Fan Zone in the build-up to kick-off, with plenty of music, guests and giveaways, plus outlets to grab a bite to eat prior to the game. |
The facility will also be in operation after the full-time whistle, with 1987 title-winner Ian Snodin providing expert analysis of what has hopefully been an Everton victory!
|The Players' Parade will once again be in operation, allowing supporters to get autographs and pictures with their favourite Everton players. |
Situated towards the Bullens Road side of the Park End car park, players usually arrive from around two-and-a-half hours before kick-off. Kick off is at 3pm.
|Inside the stadium, fans can look out for highlights of past wins over Sunderland, including the incredible 7-1 in 2007/08, and also another showing of our popular Christmas video 'Bring Me Sunshine'.|
|The matchday programme is again packed from cover to cover. Eighty-four pages of high-quality content includes a feature interview with James McCarthy, a chat with former Toffee David Ginola and a poster of wing wizard Kevin Mirallas.|
As ever, there are also updates from manager Roberto Martinez and captain Phil Jagielka and copies of the publication are available to download here or to buy before the game from sellers in and around the stadium.
|Finally, the evertontv cameras will be lingering inside and out to speak to supporters and beam your views onto the big screens - and you can use #EFCSAFC to get your social media comments and images on too. |
