Goodison Park set to host historic WSL Merseyside derby

Tickets for the first ever WSL Merseyside derby at Goodison can be purchased now.

An historic match is to take place in February, with Goodison Park set to host its first ever Barclays FA Women’s Super League Merseyside derby between Everton Women and Liverpool FC Women. 

Taking place on Sunday 9 February at 2pm, the two teams will come together looking to earn local bragging rights following the prior clash earlier this season. 

The Toffees ran out 1-0 winners back in November, with Lucy Graham’s solitary strike proving enough to claim the three points in front of 23,000 eager supporters at Anfield. 

Tickets for the return match at Goodison can be purchased now, with Liverpool County FA particularly encouraging all to attend. 

Everton boss Willie 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."  

Meanwhile, Reds' manager Vicky Jepson said: "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."

Everton season ticket holders, lounge and official members are granted free access to the game, whilst otherwise tickets cost £6 for adults and just £3 for over-65s and juniors.
