Everton Build Stateside Connection

Thu 11th Dec 2014 | Fan Engagement

Everton Football Club has formed a partnership with Global Football America to give Stateside fans greater access to all things royal Blue.

The link-up will see the Blues become the first European club to offer fans in North America exclusive access to matchday tickets, travel packages and US-specific merchandise through the launch of evertonusa.net.

Global Football America runs the official US Everton Supporters’ Club network, EvertonUSA which has over 60 affiliated groups and 35,000 members that gather in pubs and homes throughout the States to support Roberto Martinez’ men every week. 

David Kurtz, owner of Global Football America which runs EvertonUSA, said: “Everton has always been a US-friendly Club and has enjoyed voracious support from within the United States.

“With this initiative, Everton will be the first European club to finally address the American market with the products and services that they have been desperate to access.  The popularity of European soccer in the US is growing exponentially and Everton truly understands this growth.”

EvertonUSA organises an annual travel package to Goodison Park for Blues’ fans and this year’s trip will see a contingency of Americans watch Everton live in action at the Merseyside derby in February.

The group has also arranged a trip to London later this year to take in Everton’s away fixture against Chelsea.
