Everton Football Club is releasing a special commemorative range of clothing to celebrate the 125th anniversary of Goodison Park.
Two Everton legends in the shape of Graeme Sharp and Kevin Campbell were at Goodison Park to take a first-look at the range – which includes a full retro kit – and reflect on some of their favourite memories of the ‘Grand Old Lady’.
The commemorative range is just one of a number of ways the Club will be marking the momentous anniversary season. There will also be matchday activity around the date of the anniversary of the Club’s first game – a 4-2 win over Bolton Wanderers on 2 September 1892, exclusive online content, competitions and plenty of prizes and giveaways for supporters.
The full retro kit will be worn by the first team during Sunday’s pre-season fixture against Sevilla to kick off the celebrations. The royal blue polo playing jersey has a ‘Goodison Park 125 years’ motif on the back of the neck and 1892 is subtly stitched on the bottom of the left of the shirt. Traditional white shorts and dark navy blue socks make up the rest of the retro kit.
Everton captain, Phil Jagielka, who celebrated his own landmark anniversary of 10 years with the Club earlier this year, said: “Goodison Park has been home to so many special memories for me and my family throughout my time here.
“It seems only fitting that to celebrate 125 years at Goodison the fans can purchase something exclusive and as a team we’re all looking forward to putting on the commemorative kit on Sunday to wear in front of all of you.”
Alongside the retro kit the clothing range also includes a variety of t-shirts, polo shirts, hoodies and zip-up sweatshirt jackets.
The entire range is currently available to pre-order online at evertondirect.com and will be available to purchase, both online and in-store at Everton One and Everton Two, from Saturday 2 September – to mark the anniversary date.
