Submissions must include a 300-word biography and a one-minute video explaining why you are applying for the Fan Advisory Board and the skillset, knowledge and experience you would bring.  

When can I apply?

The application window opened on Wednesday 24 May and nominations can be submitted until 11.59pm on Sunday 11 June. 

How will shortlisting work? 

Once the application window closes, nominations will be reviewed by a shortlisting panel comprising two current serving FAB members, one representative of Everton Football Club, a local religious leader and a local politician or business leader. 

A score will be attributed to each candidate based on their biography AND video to establish the final nine candidates who will be put forward for election. 

The shortlisting process will also aim to ensure that each of the below criteria can be met by at least three of the final nine candidates: 

• One Evertonian who is a registered Football Supporters’ Association (FSA) member
• One Evertonian representing a group with a protected characteristic as defined in the Equality Act of 2010
• One Evertonian with no further eligibility requirements

When will the vote be? 

Once the final shortlist has been determined, bios of the nine candidates will be published on Everton and FAB channels and a vote will begin on Monday 19 June, running until Friday 30 June. 

The result of the vote will then be independently verified by the Football Supporters’ Association before being announced on Everton and FAB channels.
