What to do at Goodison Park Stadium
Goodison Park is the stadium of Premier League club Everton F.C., and it plays host to all of the club’s home matches. The stadium has also hosted international football games, including FIFA World Cup matches, as well as rugby games. It’s often used as a wedding venue, and the ashes of more than 800 Everton fans have been scattered in the grounds - so many that, since 2004, the club has rejected further requests for this as there’s no room for the stadium to be the final resting place of any more fans.
In the 2005 Rocky-spin off, Creed, the stadium featured as the venue for the boxing match between Adonis Creed (played by Michael B. Jordan) and “Pretty” Ricky Conlan (played by Everton fan Tony Bellow).
About Goodison Park Stadium
Construction of Goodison Park was completed in 1892, and it’s been the home ground of Everton F.C. ever since. The stadium has a capacity of 39,414 and comprises four stands, the Goodison Road Stand, Gwladys Street Stand, Bullens Road Stand and Park End Stand.
The club celebrated the stadium’s centenary in 1992 with a game against German team Borussia Mönchengladbach. There were also 200 limited edition medals created for the occasion, and Liverpool author Ken Rogers published a book One Hundred Years of Goodison Glory to celebrate the event.
