Everton to play Blackpool and Blackburn Rovers

Everton will play Blackpool and Blackburn Rovers in behind-closed-doors pre-season friendlies ahead of the start of the 2020/21 campaign – with both games set to be streamed LIVE for Season Ticket, 2019/20 Season Hospitality and Official Members on evertonfc.com*.

The Blues’ opening warm-up fixture will see them travel to League One Blackpool’s Bloomfield Road on Saturday 22 August for a 3pm kick-off.

They will then head on the road again to face Championship side Blackburn at Ewood Park on Tuesday 1 September which gets under way at 6pm.

A third pre-season fixture – also set to be streamed live on evertonfc.com – will be announced in due course.

Blackpool, managed by former Liverpool Under-23s coach Neil Critchley, finished 13th in League One last season and include former Everton Academy defender Jordan Thorniley among their current squad.

Blackburn, meanwhile, wound up 11th in last season’s Championship, seven points shy of the play-offs.

Managed by former Ipswich Town, West Brom and Celtic boss Tony Mowbray, Rovers boast a squad that includes 44-cap Scotland international Charlie Mulgrew, 59-cap Northern Ireland stalwart Corry Evans, former Tottenham and Fulham star Lewis Holtby and highly-rated goalscoring midfielder Bradley Dack.

Everton’s 2020/21 Premier League fixtures are set to be revealed on Friday 21 August, with the new season opening on the weekend of 12 September.
