Setting Up A Supporters’ Club
Everton Football Club has Supporters’ Club branches all over the world and we are always looking to increase that number.
Do you attend matches with a group of friends totalling more than 20? Or do you watch the Blues in action from another country as a group of 15 or more?
If so, why not consider setting up an officially affiliated Everton Supporters’ Club?
Contact Supporters’ Club co-ordinator, Beth Jones on email@example.com to find out more information on how to start your official Supporters’ Club.
