Third and final Goodison Granites phase

Everton WOF6

Evertonians have a final chance to secure a coveted Goodison Granite as the third phase of the scheme is revealed.

Hundreds of Goodison Granites went on sale on Monday and sold out within hours as supporters rushed to guarantee a permanent legacy at the home of the Blues.

Now, the Club has responded to popular demand by extending the scheme for one final time to allow more Evertonians the opportunity to be a part of it.

The Goodison Granites, which will be on sale from Monday 30 June, will be located alongside the gates of the Park End car park.

The existing personalised engraved stones surround the famous Dixie Dean statue in its new location at the gateway to the stadium, and the ones sold earlier this week will form a commemorative wall alongside the iconic Goodison Road sign near the entrance to the popular matchday Fan Zone.

Supporters can purchase three varying sizes of Goodison Granites that will be engraved with personalised messages. The single stone can house two lines of 15 characters and costs £50, while the double stone is priced at £99 and can fit up to three lines of 15 characters as well as an Everton crest of your choice. The larger celebration stone can house three lines of 23 characters, plus any Everton crest, and costs £399.

The personalised stones can be purchased exclusively online at www.goodisongranites.co.uk from noon on Monday 30 June.

The Red Rose Wall was created by Investors In Sport for the LCCC Foundation, the official charity and community arm of the Club who inspire communities through cricket. All proceeds from the Wall go towards the Foundation’s projects and programmes which include their Disability Cricket programme.

The Red Rose Wall has given fans the chance to purchase a piece of history and hold a permanent place within the ground to mark a favourite Lancashire CC memory, anniversary or loved one.

Situated under the newly redeveloped Pavilion the Red Rose Wall also features stones recognising Lancashire Legends past and present including Warren Hegg and Jack Bond who were also present at the opening.
