Blues Outline 'Game Plan' For Supporters Returning To Goodison

Campaign to make sure fans are aware of public health and safety requirements before and on matchdays.

Everton Football Club has launched a campaign to promote the safe return of supporters to Goodison Park.

‘The Game Plan’ aims to make sure fans attending the Club’s final home game of the 2020/21 season against Wolves are aware of the public health and safety requirements in the build-up to and on matchdays itself.

A restricted number of fans are set to be allowed to return to Goodison Park for the final home game of the 2020/21 Premier League season against Wolverhampton Wanderers after the Premier League’s confirmation that the fixture will take place on 18 or 19 May.   

If, as part of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown, restrictions are eased as scheduled on 17 May, then a restricted number of fans will be able to attend the fixture.  

The Club has progressed its plans for the return of fans over the last month in preparation for the easing of restrictions, working closely with the Premier League, the Ground Safety Advisory Group and local authorities in Liverpool to ensure as many fans as possible will be able to attend. The social distancing challenges posed by the concourses and other factors at Goodison Park mean capacity will be restricted under current safety guidelines.  


Seasonal Members who were successful in the ballot for the games against Manchester City and West Ham United over the festive period will be given priority access to tickets for the Wolves fixture. Those supporters will be contacted via email on Monday 3 May with details of how to confirm their tickets for the game.  

A ballot will be conducted for the remaining tickets, which will be open to 2020/21 Season Ticket Members who register to attend the game. The registration period for Season Ticket Members will run from 9am on Tuesday 4 May to 12pm (midday) on Friday 7 May. Those successful will then be able to choose their seats from 9am on Monday 10 May until 5pm on Wednesday 12 May.   

Hospitality Lounges will be open for the fixture, but with capacity significantly reduced and hospitality packages revised due to distancing guidelines. Eligible Seasonal Hospitality Members will be contacted in due course by their account manager for details of their ballot process.  

All fans who attend the fixture will be encouraged to take a lateral flow test no more than 24 hours prior to the fixture. Lateral flow tests are available for free and can be ordered online by clicking here 

Season Ticket Members who choose not to enter the ballot or who are unsuccessful in the ballot will receive a pro-rata refund for the fixture as part of the Season Ticket refund process.  

Fans will need to have photo identification with them when attending the game to ensure each match ticket is used only by the successful applicant. Tickets cannot be transferred to other Season Ticket Members. A full list of FAQs are available by clicking here.
