Everton advise early arrival for Yeovil tie

23 August  1 Comment  [Jump to last]

Everton officials are advising supporters to arrive as early as possible for tonight's game against Yeovil Town (kick off 7.45pm).

Tickets for the EFL Cup second round fixture are still available but fans are encouraged to secure their seat as soon as possible to avoid potential queues at the ticket office and at the turnstiles ahead of kick-off. There's plenty of pre-match activity taking place in the Fan Zone and Matchday Hub — click here for information — and Blues should allow plenty of time to get to their seat.

The following advice has been issued for tonight's game and future Goodison Park matches:

  • Fans should use the correct turnstile as indicated on your match ticket or season card.
  • Season cards can either be read by inserting under the reader OR by being placed on top of the reader.
  • Paper match tickets with barcodes need to be placed under the reader, facing upright.
  • Print-at-home tickets will be scanned in the same way as match tickets. Do not shrink them in size, print them on coloured paper or allow them to be of a poor quality print.

The school summer holiday and reduced ticket prices mean Blues officials are expecting a sizeable amount of late interest in the game.

Fans are advised that the print-at-home option has been activated for the fixture, meaning you can buy your ticket online, print if off and simply walk up to your turnstile when you arrive at Goodison Park — no hassle, no box office queues.

The first home game was a shambles for the Top Balcony. I arrived later than normal, due to roadworks on the East Lancs, at 1450. The queue was massive and hardly moving because of the new ticket machines. Outside the ground, we heard the game start and the oohs and aahs for a few minutes of play, then the stewards told us the kick off was being delayed which brought howls of derision.

The next think we heard was the roar for Barkley's goal. By this time, we had hardly moved and I said to a steward that, at this rate, it will be half time before we get in. A minute later they put the turnstile on freewheel and a steward inside the booth, and we all traipsed through just showing our season tickets.

The ordeal wasn't over though as stewards blocked the route to the escalators as they were not working. I got to my seat at 1510, soaked in sweat. Escalators weren't working at full time either, but not so bad going down. Not a good start for the new regime.
