Goodison Park to host rearranged Merseyside derby

Everton have announced that Goodison Park will host the rearranged Merseyside derby clash with Liverpool.

The announcement comes after the original fixture on February 9 was cancelled as a result of Storm Ciara.

The new date for the fixture is Wednesday March 25, with a 7pm kick-off (GMT).

Tickets that fans had purchased for the original fixture will remain valid. This includes tickets that were downloaded by season ticket holders and official members.

If your purchased ticket was in the Upper Bullens or Main Stand, you will now be relocated to the Sir Philip Carter Park Stand.

The club has confirmed that a representative from Everton Fan Services will be in touch with further information if this applies to you.

Complimentary tickets will no longer be valid and fans should contact their ticket supplier for more details.

The derby will be the first WSL Merseyside derby held at Goodison Park. The Toffees hope to beat the 23,500 attendance that Liverpool set at Anfield back in November.

Everton won that game 1-0 with captain Lucy Graham scoring on the stroke of half-time.

With Everton’s impressive January business and with Izzy Christiansen and Hayley Raso yet to debut for the club, they will be hoping that the result will be the same at Goodison.

The exciting prospect of the big stage

Before the original fixture, Willie Kirk told BBC Sport that he joined Everton for moments like these.

“One of the reasons I came here was because of the ambitious plans,” Kirk said.

“This game shows the progress and that they are true to their word. They have put a lot of effort into generating interest for the match and ticket sales have gone well.”

People who wish to buy tickets for the game on March 25 or secure extra tickets can do so here.

Fans can also buy their tickets through at the Goodison box office or by visiting Everton Two in Liverpool City Centre.
