EVERTON TO HOST LIVERPOOL IN FIRST GOODISON WSL DERBY
Goodison Park is set to host its first ever Barclays FA Women’s Super League Merseyside derby next month.
The historic clash between Everton and Liverpool will take place on Sunday 9 February, with kick off at 2pm. It will be the second meeting of the two teams to be hosted at a first-team stadium this season following Everton’s 1-0 victory in front of a derby record crowd of 23,500 at Anfield in November.
Everton’s ongoing commitment to allowing Season Ticket, Lounge and Official Members free access to women’s games will continue for the fixture, although all Members will be required to claim a ticket and select their seat in advance.
Tickets for non-Members will be priced at £6 for adults and £3 for over-65s and juniors.
A premium admission ticket is also available, priced at £10, and includes a pie and pint or soft drink on arrival, as well as access to a cash bar in The People’s Club Lounge and a premium seat located within the Sir Philip Carter Park Stand.
Everton are currently fifth in the Barclays FA WSL, level on points with fourth-placed
Manchester United but with a game in hand. As well as the success against Liverpool, an impressive campaign to date has seen Willie Kirk’s side defeat Birmingham City, Bristol City, Brighton and Hove Albion and Tottenham Hotspur.
Kirk said :
“We’re delighted we have the opportunity to play at Goodison Park. Big games like Merseyside derbies are the ones you want to be involved in as a player and manager and we have the opportunity to play this historic fixture on the biggest stage.
“Everton is a club renowned for its great support and that was on-show when we went to
Anfield earlier this season. Now the reverse fixture is at Goodison, we have a chance to
introduce our women’s team to even more Blues.”
Liverpool FC Women manager Vicky Jepson added:
“It’s fantastic that we’ve got another match in which to showcase the women’s game on Merseyside. The Anfield derby was a terrific occasion and I hope as many Reds as possible will cross the park to cheer on the team at another historic football venue.”
