Supporter Information: Everton v Tottenham Hotspur
Please see below for key information for fans attending Monday’s Premier League game at Goodison Park (KO 8pm).
PYROTECHNICS / PITCH ENCROACHMENT
Supporters are reminded that the use of pyrotechnics, smoke canisters, 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.
SUPPORTERS CODE OF CONDUCT / REPORTING DISCRIMINATION
Everton Football Club has a strict, zero tolerance approach to all incidents of discrimination and disorder.
We remind supporters that all perpetrators of public order offences, which includes racist or discriminatory behaviour, pitch encroachment and the throwing of objects, will receive lengthy stadium bans, potential police investigation and further possible legal sanctions.
Everton has a dedicated text number for fans to report any discriminatory or abusive behaviour they witness during matches at Goodison Park.
If you see or hear something, please report it to our Stadium Safety Team immediately by texting HELP and your message to 84300, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. In your message, please include details of what you have witnessed and where.
You will be sent a text, or email confirming your message has been received by our Stadium Safety Team.

YOUNG BLUE HARRY TO BE JORDAN’S MASCOT
Harry Garside will lead out the Blues as mascot for the visit of Tottenham Hotspur following a special invite from his hero Jordan Pickford.
Earlier this month, Harry and his mum Laura featured in a viral video that formed part of the Premier League’s ‘Fan Mail’ series, in which he met his idol Pickford at the Club’s training ground, Finch Farm.
After being diagnosed with pneumonia and sepsis at the age of five, Harry (now eight years old) later discovered that he also had an eight-centimetre-long brain tumour.

SEE EVERTON WAY STONES IN PERSON!
Fans visiting Goodison Park now have a chance to view samples of the granite stones that will make up Everton Way.
A small panel of sample stones have been installed underneath the Goodison Gang mural – opposite the box office windows - at the Park End of Goodison Park, to demonstrate how they will look when they form part of the unique walkway on the site of the Club’s new stadium.
They will also serve to help fans choose their stone on Everton Way, from the many options available.
Everton Way allows fans to purchase personalised individual stones that will be laid on the walkway that runs the length of Everton Stadium’s South Stand; the spectacular single-tier home end that will house 13,000 passionate Blues.
The stones can be personalised to celebrate births, marriages, anniversaries and loved ones – allowing fans to forever be part of the Club’s iconic new home.
More information on Everton Way can be found here.
