If you have a digital away ticket for the fixture, please use the following advice:   

Don't forget to charge your phone before heading to the Etihad and when preparing to enter the stadium open the Apple Wallet or Google Wallet app on your phone. It is advisable to ensure you do not have any bank card or other contactless cards at the back of your phone case. 
If you have multiple tickets attributed to the same fixture on one device, simply swipe left and right to switch between tickets when entering the stadium and scan each ticket individually to allow access to those in your party. 
To gain access, hold your phone close to the contactless reader on top of the turnstile. The light will turn green for a valid adult ticket and amber for concessions or junior tickets. 
If the light turns red, or you are unable to enter, a steward will be on hand at each turnstile to help with any issues. 
If you have any issues downloading your ticket, members of the Everton Fan Centre will be at the Etihad on the day of the game to assist outside the turnstiles.  


There will be a team of Everton Travel Stewards at the game to help with any issues that may arise at the Stadium.
