Reason ticket holders

By Mike Owen :  03/07/2010 :  Comments (19) :

THERE are 20 reasons to buy a ticket for the Everton FC v CD Everton game at Goodison Park on Wednesday 4 August. Below are reasons 1 to 10.

From Monday (5 July) season ticket holders can for ONE WEEK ONLY buy a ticket for just £7, or just £3 for juniors and under-16s.

The first ten reasons are:

1) See a top South American club. CD Everton were champions of Chile just two years ago and played in the Copa Libertadores, South America's equivalent of the Champions League. Three weeks before meeting us, they will be resuming their league campaign with a visit to their country's top club, Colo-Colo, and so they will be in top gear.

2) Get into Goodison for just £10, sorry, £7 if you are a season ticket holder and buy BEFORE Monday 12 July.

3) Visit Goodison for the first time in three months and avoid withdrawal symptoms.

4) See the most attractive game at Goodison in August. Apologies to Mick McCarthy.

5) Run your eyes over our new signings although, due to the World Cup, Messi may still be on holiday...

6) Take the kids for just £3 each.

7) Take Grandad for just £3.

8) Be there for a celebration of a unique round-the-world link. The visitors named their club after us in 1909; what a compliment! So, if you know your history...

9) It is one of only two games at Goodison between now and mid-September... although we could also get Dagenham at home in the Carling Cup.

10) See the sun set over the Park End. "A moment of stunning urban beauty," wrote Bill Bryson in Notes From County Road.

Reasons 11 to 20 to follow...

Evertonia 2010-11 members can buy tickets for £10 and £3 (juniors and OAPs) from Monday 10 July. Tickets go on general sale on Thursday 15 July at £10 and £3 (juniors and OAPs).

Has anyone received their new season ticket yet? Not had mine yet so how do I prove to the ticket desk I have renewed already without the new card?

Thanks for the info Mike.

I doubt Moyes would play Messi after today anyway.

Don't worry Gavin, as long as you still have last season's season ticket card, you'll be able to take that to the box office to get a ticket. They'll have it on their records that you've renewed (I presume you have).

Failing that, even if you haven't got last season's card, as long as you know your customer reference number, you could give that in instead.

I would have thought "You've a superb chance of seeing Everton win" would have been in there somewhere (nearly said guaranteed but then remembered it might be a draw!)... anyway, I'll be there, anyone know the colours of our Chilean cousins?

The home kit is the same as Boca Juniors - blue shirts & shorts with a yellow band across the chest. For our match they will be palying in all yellow with a blue band across the chest - we, of course, will be in our new kit.

I've been looking forward to this match for years & wondered if it would ever come about - & now that it's due to happen I'm going to miss it! For once we've booked our holiday for the first 2 weeks of the school break rather than the last 2 weeks ? bloody typical!

Can't wait!

A genuinely unique event - Everton V Everton.

I've also been hoping it would happen for years and will be able to go coz it's the day before I go on hols.

As Pa Larkin would say 'Loveley Jubblee!" (or 'perfick' or something)

Could be problems on the day though.



Chile Everton player: "But seeenyorrrr, we are weeeening 3-0! We are how ju say, 'peeeessing all over ju'"

Red faced lunatic: "No not YOU Everton, I mean THEM Evert.....oh forget it!"

I'm really looking forward to this game, and not just to get a much needed Everton fix! There's a unuique feeling about this friendly. Are there any examples of football cluba having another club named after them?

Again sorry to go off the point I've been told by my superiors that the singing area will be GT4 from JJ back so if anybody wants to join us they're more than welcome.

Mike, it certainly is unique, although Mierda Roja FC (San Marcos) were due to travel to the UK in 1975, but their trip was cancelled at the last minute because of a military coup.

I'm sorry to say I'm fairly sure there's a Liverpool somewhere in South America and there's definitely a Barcelona. I remember from the old Championship Manager days.

Liverpool in Montevideo, Uruguay and Barcelona in Guayaquil, Ecuador. There are several Juventuses around the world as well.

I'm sure there is also an Everton in Rosario, Uruguay. I've just tried to look this up on the interweb and I can't even find a Roasrio in Uruguay (there's one in Argentina, of course), but it deffo exists!

Mike, I reckon the plural of Juventus is Juventii, a referee-bribing tribe from Northern Italy.

Can't wait for the game, a reason to dust off my CD Everton top, last worn for Villareal away and I'm proud to say it still fits!

Other Clubs with borrowed names:

Both Liverpool & Barcelona (Uruguay & Ecuador) were named after the respective cities in 1915 and 1925. Everton FC were champions when Liverpool were renamed in Montevideo but the port would have been full of ships with "Liverpool" on their sterns.

In South America there are two genuine top flight clubs renamed after older European clubs: Rangers in Chile and Corinthians in Brazil. There are additional "Everton" clubs in Argentina, Peru and Chile ? mainly local, amateur community clubs ? as well as the clubs identified in

There's an Arsenal in Argentina, which means that Everton could play Arsenal in the Copa Libertadores.
