Everton FC History

Everton was founded under the name of St. Domingo in 1878, so that the parishioners of the Methodist Church of Santo Domingo could practice a sport activity during the colder months (cricket was the sport practiced in the summer).

A year later, the club was renamed Everton F.C., in reference to the nearby Everton district of Liverpool, further encouraging people from the parish to attend meetings. The club was one of the founders of the Football League in 1888 and won its first First Division championship in the 1890-91 season.

Having won the FA Cup in 1905-06, they won the league title again in 1914-15, but it was not until 1927 that Everton’s first successful era began. In 1925, the club signed the player Dixie Dean, who in the 1927-28 season set the record for goals in a single season in English football (60 goals in 39 league games, a record that stands to this day ), as well as helping Everton to their third league title.

Two years later they were relegated to the Second Division but ended up winning the title and promotion at the first attempt. On their return to the elite, in 1931-32, Everton reaffirmed their “status” in English football, winning the national championship for the fourth time.

The club also won its second FA Cup in 1932–33, following their 3–0 victory over Manchester City in the grand final. That era ended in 1938-39, with a fifth league title.

The advent of World War II caused the suspension of the championship, and when official competitions resumed in 1946, that group of champions was already dismantled and weak compared to the pre-war period.

Everton were relegated again in 1950-51 and did not return to the First Division until the 1953-54 season, when they finished runners-up in their third season in the Second Division. Since then, the club has never left the elite of English football.

Everton’s second successful era began in 1961, when Harry Catterick was appointed manager. In 1962-63, in his second season in charge, Everton won the league, and later, in 1966, they also won the FA Cup, beating Sheffield Wednesday 3-2 in the final.

Everton would reach the final of the tournament again two years later, but this time they would lose to West Bromwich Albion at the old Wembley Stadium.

A year later, in the 1969-70 season, Everton won another Premier League title and finished nine points clear of second-placed Leeds United.

However, the success did not last long; the club finished fourteenth, fifteenth, seventeenth and seventh in subsequent seasons. Catterick left the team, but his successors floundered and failed to win a single cup for the rest of the 1970s.

Although the club restructured towards the end of the decade, finishing third in the 1977-78 league and fourth the following season, manager Gordon Lee resigned in 1981 after Everton slipped down the table and found themselves further and further behind. local rivals Liverpool.

It was then that Howard Kendall took over as manager and guided Everton into their greatest era of success. Domestically, Everton won the FA Cup in 1983-84 and the domestic title twice, in 1984-85 and 1986-87.

The club also reached runners-up in the league and the FA Cup in 1985-86, the League Cup in 1984 and again the FA Cup in 1988-89. The first and only European title won by Everton happened in the 1984-85 season, with the conquest of the European Cup.

After first defeating University College Dublin A.F.C., FK Inter Bratislava, and Fortuna Sittard, Everton beat Germany’s Bayern Munich 3-1 in the semi-finals, despite losing late in the first half (this match was chosen in the history of Goodison Park). In the grand final, the “Toffees” beat the Austrians Rapid Vienna, also 3-1.

Having won the Premier League title in 1984-85, Everton came close to the Triple Crown but lost to Manchester U. in the FA Cup final.

Following the Heysel tragedy in 1985 and the subsequent exclusion of all English clubs from continental competition, Everton missed out on the European Cups they were missing. That winning group soon disbanded after the ban.

Formed in 1986, the Everton Ladies went on to win major national titles thereafter.

After the 1987 title, Kendall went on to coach Athletic Bilbao, being replaced by his assistant Colin Harvey.

In 1992, Everton helped found the Premier League but struggled to find the right manager. Howard Kendall returned in 1990 but did not achieve the same success as years before.

His successor, Mike Walker, was statistically the club’s worst record manager to date. When former Everton player Joe Royle took over as manager in 1994, the club began to improve. His first game was a 2-0 derby victory against Liverpool. Royle not only knocked Everton out of the bottom of the table, but also led the club to their fifth FA Cup in 1995 by beating Manchester United 1–0 in the final.

The Cup title also served as a passport to participation in the European Cup, the club’s first international tournament since the post-Heysel era. Progress under Joe Royle continued into the 1995–96 season, when the club finished sixth in the Premier League.

The following season, 1996-97, was not a success and the team finished the championship in fifteenth position. Royle left in March 1997, leaving team captain Dave Watson to temporarily take over as manager and help the club survive in the league. That same year, Howard Kendall was appointed manager for the third time, but the strategy was unsuccessful, with the club finishing the domestic competition in just seventeenth position, and avoiding relegation by having a superior goal difference to Bolton Wanderers.

Former Rangers manager Walter Smith took over as manager in the summer of 1998, but only managed to leave the club for three consecutive seasons at the bottom of the table.

Everton officials lost patience with Smith and sacked him in March 2002, with the club at risk of relegation. David Moyes was his replacement and saved the team from falling, finishing the championship in fifteenth place. After that terrifying season, Everton finished seventh, seventeenth, fourth (their best performance in Premier League history), and eleventh. It was under Moyes that striker Wayne Rooney rose to the first team, before being sold to Manchester United for a record £23m.

Moyes broke the club record for player transfer fees four times, signing James Beattie (£6m in January 2005), Andy Johnson (£8.6m in summer 2006), Yakubu Aiyegbeni (£11.25 million, summer 2007), and Marouane Fellaini (£15 million, September 2008.

In the 2006–07 season, Everton finished sixth in the league and was able to play in the UEFA Cup qualifying round. In 2007, the club acquired the Toxteth Tigers basketball team, giving rise to Liverpool City’s first basketball franchise in the elite of English basketball, the Everton Tigers. In the 2007–08 season, Everton once again secured a place in European competition after finishing fifth in the English league.

In the 2008–09 season, the club finished the league in the fifth position, again securing their place in the (new) Europa League. The great moment for the team that year was, without a doubt, the dispute of the FA Cup final for the first time since 1995. However, in the decision held at Wembley Stadium, Chelsea won the title, after winning by 2-1.

Moyes broke the record for the highest price ever paid in company history four times, buying James Beattie for £6m in January 2005, Andy Johnson for £8.6m in the summer of 2006, Yakubu Aiyegbeni for £11 million. 2007 and finally purchased Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini in September 2008 for a record £15m. It was also under the leadership of David Moyes that Wayne Rooney left his local team, selling the young Liverpool talent to Manchester United for an additional record £27m.

2012-2013 season

On 9 May 2013, Everton confirmed that manager David Moyes would leave the club at the end of the 2012-2013 season to join Manchester United as Alex Ferguson’s successor. The Scottish manager left the Toffees after eleven years, having amassed a total of 218 wins from 518 matches, but greeted Merseyside without any trophies won. In the 2012–13 Premier League, the club finished sixth in the standings but missed out on European cups like rivals Liverpool, who finished seventh, as Wigan and Swansea won the FA Cup and League Cup. As well as Moyes, Everton also sacked their captain Phil Neville, who retired from racing at the end of the season, at the end of an eighteen-year career.

On June 5, 2013, the Toffees management formalized the hiring of Roberto Martínez for the bench. The Spanish, ex-coach of Wigan, was the fourteenth coach in Everton’s history, with a four-year contract. In the 2013-2014 season, the team, reinforced by the arrivals on a loan of Gerard Deulofeu and Romelu Lukaku, achieved fifth place in the league, gaining access to the UEFA Cup. In the summer of 2014, the club set a new record for the strongest buyout, swapping Lukaku’s estate for £28 million and signing Cameroonian star Samuel Eto’o.

2014-2015 season

The 2014-2015 season closed in eleventh place thanks to promotion to the final of the tournament (six victories obtained in the last ten days), while on the European stage, which Everton stepped on again after four years, the journey European League was broken in the round of 16. The protagonist of the year was Lukaku, who scored 9 goals in the Europa League and 10 in the League.

For the 2015-2016 season, the board implemented the redemption of Deulofeu’s property for 6 million pounds and Aaron Lennon for 4.5 million pounds and signed Tom Cleverley and two South Americans, the Argentine Ramiro Funes Mori (paid 9.5 million pounds) and the Uruguayan Leandro Rodríguez.

Despite the overwhelming transfer campaign (continued in January with the purchase of Nigerian striker Oumar Niasse for 13.5 million pounds), Everton had a mediocre season, albeit enhanced by the semi-final reached in the League Cup and the semifinal of the FA Cup In February 2016, the entry into the club of the Iranian tycoon Farhad Moshiri was confirmed, who took over 49.9% of the company’s shares, while on May 12 Martínez was relieved of his position and temporarily replaced by David Unsworth, who was leading his in eleventh. place in the Premier League.

2016-2017 season

Entrusted to the Dutchman Ronald Koeman with a three-year contract, the team spent the 2016-2017 season in the first half of the table, finishing in the seventh position, valid for qualification for the Europa League. Lukaku, with 25 goals, was the first Everton player to reach 20 goals in a season since Gary Lineker (1985-1986) and was the top scorer in the league. After selling the Congolese to Manchester Utd for 90 million pounds (a record for Everton), in the summer of 2017, the Toffees spent 45 to sign the Icelandic from Swansea City Gylfi Sigurðsson and 25 on Jordan Pickford, who became the most expensive Premier League.

Wayne Rooney was also signed, who was returning, after thirteen years, to the club that had launched him. In October 2017 Koeman was fired with the team almost eliminated from the Europa League and in the relegation zone of the league. He was replaced by David Unsworth, youth coach, in turn, replaced, after a negative month, by Sam Allardyce, who managed to lift the team to eighth place in 2017-2018.


It was then the Portuguese Marco Silva, with a three-year contract, to sit on the Toffees bench. The Liverpool team, reinforced by the arrival of Brazilian striker Richarlison for around 55 million euros (the most expensive purchase in the club’s history), finished the 2018-2019 championship in eighth place, while during the 2019-2020 campaign Silva He was fired. after the loss to Liverpool, with the team ranked third from bottom in the Premier League.

Passed into the hands of Carlo Ancelotti, Everton closed the championship in twelfth position. In 2020-2021 the team offered excellent performances in the initial phase of the championship, climbing to the top of the table, also thanks to the performances of center forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin; in the second round the performance was worse and the Liverpool team closed the tournament in tenth place, -3 behind the European zone.

In the summer of 2021, the incumbent Ancelotti was replaced by Rafael Benítez.

Ancelotti left the club in June 2021 to rejoin former club Real Madrid as manager, having led the club to a 10th-place finish in his only full season at the club. Former Liverpool manager Rafael Benítez was appointed as his replacement, subsequently becoming the second person to manage both Liverpool and Everton. He was sacked in January 2022 after 9 defeats in his last 13 games in charge of the club and was replaced by former Chelsea manager Frank Lampard.

Everton FC Kit

Everton’s traditional home colors are royal blue shirts, white shorts, and white socks. However, during the first few decades of their history, Everton had a number of different kit colors. The team originally played in white and later blue and white stripes, but as new players arriving at the club wore their old team’s shirts during matches, confusion soon set in. It was decided to dye the shirts black, both to save costs and to instill a more professional look. However, the kit looked morbid, so a scarlet sash was added.

When the club moved to Goodison Park in 1892, the colors were salmon pink and dark blue striped shirts with dark blue shorts. The club later switched to ruby ​​shirts with blue trim and dark blue shorts. Royal blue jerseys with white shorts were first worn in the 1901-02 season. The club played sky blue in 1906; however, fans protested and the color was reverted to royal blue. Everton has occasionally played in shades lighter than royal blue (such as in 1930–31 and 1997–98). Today’s home team is royal blue shirts with white shorts and socks. The club may also wear all blue to avoid any color conflicts.

Everton’s traditional away colors were white shirts with black shorts, but from 1968 amber shirts and royal blue shorts became common. Various editions appeared throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Black, white, gray, and yellow away jerseys have also been used.

Everton’s biggest rivalry is, without a doubt, with Merseyside’s “rich brother”, Liverpool, with whom it makes the so-called Merseyside derby. The hostility is old, not least because the red rival was founded due to problems between Everton’s managers and the owners of Anfield (Everton’s stadium at that time). Religious differences are also cited as one of the causes of the split, with Everton usually taking the Catholic side; however, both sides were founded on the Methodist tradition, which would not support the Catholic-Protestant divide. The Merseyside derby is always a game where all tickets are sold, and it has a negative mark: it is the clash with the reddest cards in all of Premier League history.

In addition to their biggest rivalry against Liverpool FC, Everton fans have Manchester United and Manchester City as their second and third rivals respectively, which should contribute to the proximity between the cities of Liverpool and Manchester, separated by only 56 kilometers, in addition to the fact that the two biggest clubs in each of these cities are the clubs with the most titles in the North West of England.

Ownership and finance

Everton FC is a limited company in which the board of directors owns the majority of the shares. The club’s most recent accounts, from May 2014, show a total net debt of £28.1m, with a turnover of £120.5m and a profit of £28.2m. The club’s overdraft with Barclays Bank is guaranteed against the Premier League “Core Prize Fund”, which is a guaranteed sum awarded to clubs for competing in the Premier League.

Everton agreed to a £30 million long-term loan with Bear Stearns and Prudential plc in 2002 for a duration of 25 years. The loan was a consolidation of debts at the time, as well as a source of capital for the acquisition of new players. Goodison Park is guaranteed as collateral. On February 27, 2016, it was announced that Farhad Moshiri would buy a 49.9% stake in the club.
