Everton Football Club is a professional English football club based in the city of Liverpool. The club currently competes in the Premier League, which is the top division in the English football pyramid and are one of a select number of clubs that have played in the top flight in every season since the 1992/93 campaign.
Everton currently plays their home matches at Goodison Park, which has been their home since 1892 and has a maximum capacity of 39,414. Goodison Park holds the record for hosting the most top flight games in English football history, although there are plans for them to move into a new stadium at the Bramley-Moore Dock.
Everton share a long-standing rivalry with neighbours Liverpool, who play on the opposite side of Stanley Park.
Everton have a proud history behind them that includes a number of notable honours won. The best of those are nine First Division titles, which they won for the first time in the 1890/91 season and most recently in 1986/87. In addition, they also won the old English Second Division title in 1930/31. Everton are also five-time winners of the FA Cup, having first won the competition in 1906 when they defeated Newcastle 1-0 in the final. Their last FA Cup win, which was also their last major trophy won, came in the 1995 season when they overcame Manchester United at Wembley. The club have also won the Community Shield nine times in their history, as well as having one European trophy to their name. That is the old UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, which they won in 1985 by defeated Rapid Wien in the final.
Everton was founded in 1878, becoming founding members of the Football League ten years later in 1888, making them one of the oldest football clubs in England. Nicknamed the Toffees, the club have played in the top division of English football for the vast majority of their history. They were the original tenants of Anfield, the home of their biggest rivals Liverpool, but moved to across Stanley Park to Goodison Park in 1892.
Arguably the most famous season in the club’s history was the 1984/85 campaign when Howard Kendall led the club to a famous double. It could so easily have been a treble too, had they not lost the 1985 FA Cup final to Manchester United. Everton won the league by 13 points, as well as winning the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup as well. That team featured club legends such as Neville Southall, Kevin Ratcliffe, Gary Stevens, Peter Reid, Kevin Sheedy, Trevor Steven, Andy Gray and Graeme Sharp.
The aforementioned Southall is the club’s all-time leader in appearances with 751 to his name, followed by Brian Labone and Dave Watson on 534 and 528 games, respectively. No player has been able to match Dixie Dean’s record of 386 goals in 433 appearances for Everton and is followed by Sharp and Bob Latchford in the top three.
