You can check the roads that are inside the ULEZ zone and if your vehicle meets the emission standards here. One of the official car parks, Chiswick Park, is located within the ULEZ. Before booking a place here, you should therefore check whether your vehicle meets the emission standards. (Vehicles that fail to meet emission standards will be charged £12.50 per day to drive within the wider ULEZ zone and fines are charged for those who fail to pay this rate).

FAN BEHAVIOR AND SAFETY ANNOUNCEMENT

Anti-Discrimination: Everton Football Club has a zero tolerance stance on any discriminatory behavior and language used to surrender, from or during the game. We are committed and committed to promoting equality and diversity in everything we do. Reminding you of the Clubs ‘All Together Now’ campaign which was launched to promote a ‘Football Family for Everyone’ and we will not stop in our mission to promote equality through the positive power of football.

Possession or use of pyrotechnics: Everton Football Club does not condone the use of pyrotechnics. Any fan caught using them will be prosecuted by the Club and the police. Away Clubs use various techniques to detect the possession and use of pyrotechnics. Anyone found in possession of such items is subject to arrest, which could result in a criminal conviction and subsequent football ban.

Contest Antisocial Behavior: In previous seasons, there has been an increase with a small group of fans involved in anti-social behavior (throwing beer) in Club halls. As a result, the social activity of many other halftime fans is ruined by the actions of the small minority. Such action may result in ejection from the stadium or, in more serious incidents, arrest and subsequent banning from football.

Please continue to enjoy your game day, but we also ask that you consider other supporters and how they will be affected by your behavior. We would like to thank you for your continued support in protecting the reputation of Everton football clubs and improving the matchday experience for all.
