What we offer...
The main aim of the Everton Supporters Club Northern Ireland (ESCNI) is to help the maximum number of Northern Ireland based Evertonians attend the maximum number of Everton games at the minimum of cost.
In an effort to support this aim, we have three main goals; namely, to provide our members with...
- improved access to match tickets
- reliable match fixture information
- up to date travel information
As an official club, we have a direct contact at Everton FC for match tickets and, as a member of ESCNI, you will benefit from being allocated some of the best seats still available (apart from the 30,500 seats already purchased by season ticket holders) at Goodison. We have been accorded this special privilege by Everton FC in recognition of the onerous travel commitments endured by our members and our tickets are allocated to us even before those to the members of their ForEverton priority scheme. Furthermore, for the Big Matches (such as cup finals and semi‑finals, away games, and the Liverpool and Man Utd home games) we receive some priority (but no guarantee) in the allocation of tickets. Your membership fee will also cover all match ticket postage and booking fees.
Another of the big advantages of being an ESCNI member is our fixture advice service, where we advise members which home matches are still liable to rearrangement and which are not. Since the advent of the low cost airline services to Liverpool (currently it's mainly easyJet from Belfast International; with limited services by Flybe from Belfast City and by Ryanair from Derry), we have found that there isn't really the demand for organised trips as such. However, with the low cost airlines, it can be annoyingly expensive to have to rearrange your flights due to the dictates of live TV. So, with our unrivalled experience and inside information, our fixture advice service can save you a lot of money and heartache.
As a club striving to cover all of Northern Ireland, we have adopted the advances in modern communications technology and have largely developed into an online club. Consequently, we primarily use email and SMS text services (for those members with mobile telephones) to keep our members informed of travel and match ticket information. As well as our website, and in order to create more of an online community feel within the club, we are currently developing our own Twitter and Facebook websites as well.
Formed in 1986, we have members of all ages from all parts of the province (and beyond). ESCNI is, by far, the largest officially recognised Everton supporters' club in Northern Ireland and we currently have a membership of over 400. Indeed, for each of the past fifteen seasons, ESCNI has had more than 300 members.
Unlike some other supporters clubs, you are not required to attend any meetings or matches (it's your choice which matches, if any, you wish to attend). Furthermore, there is just a one-off annual fee (no monthly fees or raffle tickets to sell). The fees for full membership for 2017-18 are as follows:
- Adult: £15
- Junior (born after 31st December 2001): £6
- Senior (born before 31st December 1952): £6
- Family (max 2 adults, unlimited children): £30
Hopefully, the many benefits on offer (some of which are outlined above), together with the friendliness and excellent behaviour of our members, will convince you to join ESCNI. We look forward to hearing from you soon and hopefully welcoming you into our club.
If you would like to join ESCNI, please enrol electronically (please note that you do not require a PayPal account, a standard credit or debit card will do)...
