Everton Tour Down Under – Reserve your Tickets now


Best known in Australia as the club of Qantas Socceroos favourite, Tim Cahill, Everton has been at the forefront of English football since the club was formed in 1878.
Promoter, Sam Righi, of Big Deal Touring and Trinity Sports and Event Management has confirmed that Everton will play matches against three Hyundai A”League clubs ? 2010 champions Sydney FC on 10 July, newcomers Melbourne Heart on 14 July and Brisbane Roar on 17 July.
?I?m a general sports fan like most Australians and I see this as a fantastic opportunity for the Hyundai A-League to show its worth against one of the best known and most loved teams in the English Premier League,? said Righi.  
Led by Everton?s manager (coach) of the past eight years, David Moyes, the visiting squad will include first team players who are not otherwise occupied with the FIFA World Cup including captain Phil Neville, Mikel Arteta, Louis Saha, Sylvain Distin and Jack Rodwell. 
Cahill, who will potentially still be involved with Australia?s third World Cup campaign when the tour starts, has confirmed he will play in Sydney and Melbourne once he is available. Cahill is widely anticipated to sign a new four year deal with Everton prior to the World Cup.
He said he is looking forward to seeing his club meet up with the army of Evertonians in his home land.
?I think it?s fantastic for the Hyundai A-League and also Everton because Australia?s got a massive following of Everton supporters.
?I get together and have a lot of signing sessions with the Everton supporters and they come from all corners of Australia. They?re a proud following and I think for a Premier League team like Everton to visit Australia is absolutely massive.?
NSW Minister for Major Events Ian Macdonald welcomed the news that Everton would make Sydney its home base during the Australian tour, as well as hosting the game against 2010 champions Sydney FC on 10 July.
?We look forward to welcoming players, staff and fans to our beautiful city. 
?I am confident Sydneysiders will make them very welcome ? their presence will further add to the soccer fever that we expect to grip the city and indeed NSW during the Sydney International FIFA Fan Fest.
?We are committed to supporting major sporting events, and will show our visiting international soccer stars some fantastic ?Sydney style? hospitality, as well as encouraging an enthusiastic crowd of fans in Sydney on 10 July.?
Everton has made a habit of international pre-season tours since Moyes took charge of the ?Toffees?, with the USA, Canada, Italy, Switzerland, Austria, Scotland and Thailand on the itinerary in recent years.
