For season ticket prices it came second in the Premier League.

Goodison Park was rated as one of the top four most welcoming stadiums in the top-flight with the people working in and around EFC highly rated by match attendees.

Supporters also identified the four factors that were most important to the effective running of the football club as being: youth development; having a long-term vision; maintaining ethos and traditions; and a sustainable financial policy.

Robert Elstone, Everton chief executive said: “Our nil satis approach and quest for continued improvement is integrated into every department within the club and I’m delighted that this is recognised by such a significant section of our fanbase and the wider footballing family.

“It’s fantastic that our stewarding team specifically have been justly recognised for their continued efforts to be the best in the business. Their professionalism and positive attitude is noticed by the thousands of supporters who are welcomed to Goodison Park every matchday and this exemplifies the commitment shown by every member of staff who serves this great club.”
