This is Everton - Videomag
The BIG CLUBS in the FA Premiership have regular
videomags for the fans... So did Everton for all of 1½ seasons
back in the mid-1990s.
|THIS IS EVERTON|
The introduction of Everton's bi-monthly video-magazine coincided nicely
with Everton's best season in the Premiership: 1995-96. The 60-minute
videos provide fans especially those living abroad and getting limited
coverage of Everton on their local TVs with detailed coverage of Everton
matches and all happenings at the club.
With Everton's precipitous fall from the higher echelons of the Premiership during the disastrous spring of 1997, the decision was made by the Board of Everton FC to terminate this bi-monthly video-magazine, without any explanation.
|VIDEO MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION|
The Videomagazine Subscription service rates (in pounds sterling) for the
full 1996-97 season were:
This is Everton used to be available by subscription through Everton's Mail Order Department. You could also get a 5% discounted Supporters Club rate, if you included your membership number.

We were promised at least 4 issues, but only got three. The sudden departure
of Joe Royle at the end of March 1997 probably meant that the stillborn
Issue 4 became an overnight embarrassment and was canned. Subscribers instead
eventually received a "free" copy of the Season
Review of 1996-97 in its place.
The inaugural season of Everton's video-magazine in 1995-96 was a great
step forward, especially for Evertonians exiled in far-flung corners of the
globe. Here was a chance to see all the goals, the current players
and news-makers at Goodison Park.
