Best Game In August

By Mike Owen :  29/06/2010 :  Comments (9) :

DID you enjoy watching Chile in the World Cup? The way they were darting about, moving the ball, jinking around players, I thought it was a team of Peter Beardsleys.

See more Chilean football at Goodison on Wednesday 4th August for as little as £7 or £3 when Everton play Everton.

Next week, tickets for this unique game go on sale to season ticket holders, with adults paying just £7 during a special one-week-long window starting Monday (July 5th). Junior and OAP season ticket holders pay just £3.

After the discount period for season ticket holders ends, tickets go on general sale, with adults paying £10, while under-16s and OAPs will still be able to buy tickets for £3.

Given that this is a rare opportunity to see a top South American club in action — CD Everton were Champions of Chile in 2008 — these are brilliant prices. Some might say recession-busting.

And it's quite likely that this will be the best game at Goodison in August.

Please note that season ticket holders will not be automatically allocated their Premier League seat for this game. If you do want your normal season ticket seat, get in early.

The manager of the visiting Everton, Nelson Acosta (manager of Chile when they beat England at Wembley in 1998) has said his team will be treating this game as a cup final. And just before they fly over, they will have played a couple of games in the Chilean League, so they will be flying in more ways than one.

For full ticket details, go to the Official Everton Club website:

Also visit, the new website of the Ruleteros Society, which was formed in 2002 to develop links between the two Evertons.

Yes I DID enjoy watching Chile at the World Cup... they sure play an entertaining brand of football! We'll need to be sharp to stay with those nippy little fella's! (Do any of the national team play for CD Everton just out of interest?)

Shame they came up against such an awesome Brazil team. One thing is for sure - England could never have lived with the pace of either of those teams!

Look forward to seeing them at The Old Lady - thanks for the heads-up!

None of the Everton players were in the Chilean national side. As for the shirt, they are bringing over 100, for sale probably via the club, most likely at one of the Kiosks on the night - I think the main one is at the Park End. Important thing is a good number will be available in and around the match.

I'd love to buy a top as the only ones I can find anywhere on the web are from a couple of seasons ago.

I live near Norwich, so you can imagine that the friendly at Carrow Road was a certainty, it will cost £50 to take my kids to that game. To watch Everton will cost £20 for tickets and £30 for fuel to get to Goodison and back, how stupid is that.
