Goodison Park farewell: Fans offered unique opportunity by Everton

Everton fans will be dreading the Goodison Park farewell that is set to happen this time next year but the club are keen to ensure the final 12 months at the famous old stadium is a memorable one for the club's supporters.

Since 1892, the Toffees have played their home matches at Goodison Park but they are set to move to a brand new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock at the beginning of the 2025/26 season. As a result, next season will be the club's final one at Goodison Park, providing the club's financial situation doesn't worsen any further.

As part of their final season at Goodison Park, Everton have announced that they are set to introduce a new component to their stadium tour. It is standard on all stadium tours for guests to be barred from entering the pitch so the grass can be preserved, however, on Sunday, 12 May, Everton will let supporters grace the hallowed turf at Goodison Park.

Everton's final home game of the season is set to take place this weekend against Sheffield United. As a result, the club aren't too concerned about maintaining the pitch for the time being which is why they are running this special tour the day after on the 12th of May.

The tour is being called “Stadium Tour: Pitch Experience” and will take also include a look at both the home and away changing rooms, a look around the Directors' Box and a press experience where fans can sit in the manager's chair as if they were answering questions at a press conference.

The tour will finish with a walk down the tunnel to the sound of Z Cars – the music Everton walk on to the pitch to – before fans can enter the field of play to grace the same turf that countless Everton legends have graced over the years.

The tours will last 80 minutes and will cost £25 for adults, £20 for concessions and £15 for u16s.
