Everton Football Club has a zero-tolerance stance on any discriminatory behavior and language used to travel to, from or during the match.  We are committed and dedicated to embracing equality and diversity in everything that we do. Reminding you about the Clubs ‘All Together Now’ campaign which has been launched to promote a ‘Football Family for Everyone’ and we will not stop in our mission to drive equality through the positive power of football.

Possession or Use of Pyrotechnics:
Everton Football Club does not condone the use of pyrotechnics under any circumstances. Any fan found using them will be subject to action by the Club and Police. Away Clubs use various techniques to detect the possession and use of pyrotechnics. Any person found in possession of such items are liable to arrest which could result in a criminal conviction and subsequent football ban.

Concourse Anti-Social behaviour:
In previous seasons there has been an increase with a small group of fans becoming involved in anti-social behaviour (beer throwing) within Club concourses. This does result in many fellow fans social activity at half time being ruined by the actions of the small minority. Such action can result in ejection from the stadium or in the case more serious incidents an arrest and subsequent football ban.

Please continue to enjoy your match day but we ask that you also consider other supporters and how they will be affected by your behaviour. We would like to thank you for your continued support in protecting Everton Football Club's reputation and in enhancing the matchday experience for all.

Thank you.
