Goodison Park To Host Merseyside Derby Behind Closed Doors

Everton’s Merseyside derby against Liverpool will take place behind closed doors at Goodison Park on Sunday 21 June, 7pm kick-off.

The decision to play the game at the Club’s home stadium was made today by the local Ground Safety Advisory Group following positive discussions between the Club, Liverpool City Council, Merseyside Police, The Everton Fans’ Forum, The Blue Union, Liverpool Football Club and Spirit of Shankly.

It means Everton will play all five of their remaining home fixtures for the 2019/20 season behind closed doors at Goodison, with the derby followed by games against Leicester City on Wednesday 1 July (6pm kick-off), Southampton, Aston Villa and Bournemouth. Dates and kick-off times for the final three home matches will be confirmed in due course.

Everton’s derby clash with Liverpool on Sunday 21 June will be broadcast free-to-air on Sky Sports.
