Everton Football Club - Firsts
The history of Everton Football Club is so much more than the players who
have graced the hallowed Goodison Park turf.
There's more to Everton than the trophies in the cabinet; the Toffees have been
constant innovators in the footballing world, ceaselessly striving to be the best,
and the first to accomplish new feats, while establishing new norms.
The Nil Satis Nisi Optimum ("Nothing but the best is good enough") motto could not be more appropriate.
From becoming one of the founder members of the football league in 1888, right through to present day when we announced a new service which allows fans to purchase match tickets through text message, Everton have always been at the forefront of new ideas.
Did you know we were the first to wear numbers on our backs; the first to have a purpose-built football stadium, and the first to go on an overseas tour? Below is an extensive list of some of the significant landmarks that Everton Football Club has accomplished since its birth.
