SAFTEY ANNOUNCMENT 

Possession or Use of Pyrotechnics:
Everton Football Club does not condone the use of pyrotechnics under any circumstances. Any fan found using them will be subject to action by the Club and Police. Away Clubs use various techniques to detect the possession and use of pyrotechnics. Any person found in possession of such items are liable to arrest which could result in a criminal conviction and subsequent football ban.

Concourse Anti-Social behaviour:
This season has seen an increase involving a small group of fans becoming involved in anti-social behaviour (beer throwing / bouncing) within Club concourses. This does result in many fellow fans half time social activity being ruined by the actions of the small minority. Such action can result in ejection from the stadium or in the case more serious incidents an arrest and subsequent football ban.

Please continue to enjoy your match day but we ask that you also consider other supporters and how they will be affected by your behaviour. We would like to thank you for your continued support in protecting Everton Football Clubs reputation and support in enhancing the match day experience for all.
