Subscription rates – at £20 per season for an individual, £30 for a couple (or family of 2) and £35 for family membership (3 or more members).

The Club exists to bring together all Everton supporters in its home area. It achieves this principally through the organisation of travel where possible by train (or coach from Euston and stopping at Toddington services on the M1) and tickets (subject to availability) to all Everton FC first team fixtures.

FAQs

Occasionally we get asked a question that we feel if worthy of a public answer, these are all listed below – if you have a question that is not listed, please use this form provided to help with your enquiries.

How long does membership last?

Membership is on a seasonal basis and an application form needs to be filled out. Full details are sent to you with the application form.

Can ESCLA obtain tickets for home games?

ESCLA is a travel club, organising trips to the majority of EFC home and away games by either coach or train – though seldom to mid-week fixtures. Match tickets for those who travel with ESCLA to matches at Goodison Park are not as a rule obtained for members but sometimes we can obtain tickets for more high profile matches for those who require them – subject to availability.

Are there places where ESCLA members meet up?

The best place to meet your fellow members is at the Horseshoe Pub, Clerkenwell Close, London EC1. The pub is run by our Social Secretary Rob, and currently is the closest thing we have to an ESCLA HQ.  It is the place to go when Everton are live on TV and you can’t get to the match – you can always phone the pub, 0207 253 6068, to check if the match is being shown. Outside of that, there are not any particular places where ESCLA members meet given that we’re based all over London and its suburbs and we don’t have regular meetings other than travelling to Everton matches. Your best way therefore of meeting ESCLA members is to travel with us to an Everton match at Goodison Park. If you travel, you get to know members and the places where they may meet up

If I join now, how long does my membership last?

The membership fee for anyone joining from 1 March onwards covers the rest of the season and the whole of next season.

Does ESCLA do merchandising?

ESCLA does not do any type of merchandising at present.

Can I join if I live in the Milton Keynes area?

You can join ESCLA but before doing so would advise you that Everton FC does have a supporters’ club in Milton Keynes.

Can I join if I live in East Anglia?

ESCLA is technically the official Everton FC affiliated supporters’ club for London and the Home Counties, but as there is no East Anglia club, we have a number of members in Cambridgeshire, so you would be very welcome to apply for membership.
