About us

We are constant innovators in the footballing world, ceaselessly striving to be the best, and the first to accomplish new feats while establishing new forms. We are one of the 12 founding members of the Football League. We have spent more seasons in England’s top division more than any other Club and been crowned champions on nine occasions.

Founded in 1878 at St Domingo, the Club has also lifted the FA Cup five times and, in 1985, added the European Cup Winners’ Cup to its prestigious haul. 

Throughout our 140-year history, we have been recognised as a family-oriented Club with proud traditions. Those traditions have also encouraged innovation, ensuring Everton has remained one of the great pioneering clubs in the history of the game. The first club to construct a purpose-built football stadium, Goodison Park is one of the most revered stadiums in England.

It was also the first club to see its players wear shirts numbered 1 to 11, the first club to go on an overseas tour, the first English club to install dugouts and undersoil heating, the first club to feature in a televised match, the first club to introduce a regular matchday programme, the first club to present its players with medals for winning the Football League championship and the first club to have a player, Dixie Dean, break the 60 goals barrier in a single league season.

Our values underpin how we behave, how we represent our club in our city, across the world of football, and how we look after one another daily. They provide a framework for how we work with partners, suppliers, and, most importantly, our fans. They help us to connect families. We are the People`s Club- that’s why it is so important that we follow our mission every day that mission is to make ‘Evertonians Proud to be Blue’, That is what we strive for every day. “Nil Satis Nisi Optimum” – Nothing but the best is good enough.
