Matchday Guide: Train Engineering Works And Coach Welcome

Please see below for key information for fans attending Saturday’s Premier League game at Goodison Park (kick-off 3pm).


Supporters attending Everton’s Premier League fixture with Southampton are urged to consider their travel plans to and from Goodison Park.   

Due to significant engineering works, there will be no rail service between Hunts Cross and Sandhills on the Northern line. There will also be no trains stopping in the City Centre (Liverpool Central or Liverpool Moorfields).

A rail replacement bus service will operate from Hunts Cross to Sandhills, calling only at Moorfields in the City Centre. The train service commences at Sandhills.

Soccerbus will still be running from Sandhills to Goodison.


Supporters’ groups are staging a ‘coach welcome’ to greet the players as the team coach arrives at Goodison Park on Saturday.

Fans are asked to gather on Goodison Road from 1pm. To ensure the coaches arrive and depart on time fans are asked to keep the road clear at all times.


Supporters are reminded the use of pyrotechnics, smoke cannisters, flares and entering the field of play is a criminal offence.

The Club is committed to the Premier League, FA and EFL’s collective stance in tackling anti-social and criminal behaviour at football matches.

The Club has previously outlined and maintains that it will take a zero-tolerance approach to pitch encroachment. Stadium bans - and even criminal prosecution - can and will be enforced to punish anyone that enters the playing area.

The Club is legally compelled to work with the authorities to identify any individuals who take part in such activity.

This also applies to the use of any pyrotechnics (smoke grenades and or flares) and the throwing of objects of any description on to the pitch. These acts are dangerous, illegal and have severe consequences.

Under strict stadium guidelines, all pyrotechnics are prohibited and supporters are advised that spot checks will take place at turnstiles and any such items will be confiscated.

Fans also run the risk of arrest and a subsequent stadium ban for possession of a pyrotechnic inside a football stadium.


The Park End Kitchen provides a tasty appetiser to the game.

The distinctive Royal Blue-branded food outlet, the newest addition to the Fan Zone, was agreed following discussions with the Fans’ Forum back in 2019.

The COVID pandemic delayed its launch, but the Park End Kitchen has been a popular addition to the Fanzone this season and will again be open for business on Saturday, from 3pm, serving a wide range of burgers and accompaniments.

Plans are in place to develop the food offering, in consultation with supporters, so please support the food outlet and we welcome any feedback or suggestions to improve it further going forwards.


The Fan Zone will be open at the Park End of Goodison Park from 12.30pm.

There will be a live performance on stage from Ryan Rooney ahead of the game, and the Live Show, commencing at 1.30pm, will also have special guests including Freddie and Hughie, who will appear pitchside at half time as they visit Goodison on their nationwide find-raising effort.

Catering units will be on-site with hot and cold refreshments, including the Park End Kitchen, a Club-owned foot outlet launched in response to fans’ feedback and in conjunction with the Fans’ Forum.

The Homebaked Bakery will have pies available in the Fanzone, via the blue Homebaked Bakery@Goodison Park-branded concession, which offers fans the chance to sample the famous Homebaked Scouse Pie, the award-winning Vegan Scouse Pie, as well as Everton themed pies The Blue (Steak & Stilton) and The Trinity Pie, in honour of Howard Kendall, Colin Harvey and Alan Ball.

Please note: No pyrotechnics (smoke cannisters or flares) will be allowed in the Fan Zone.


Fans’ Supporting Foodbanks and their unmissable purple vehicle will be in the Fan Zone all season on matchdays. They will be accessible from Goodison Road.
