History of the Everton FC
Everton Football Club is a professional football team based in Liverpool, England. Founded in 1878, the club has been an integral part of English football for over 140 years and has won nine League titles and five FA Cups. Everton FC is one of the founding members of The Football League, which was established in 1888.
The Toffees first entered the Premier League era during its inaugural season back in 1992-93 after finishing as runners-up to Aston Villa during their last season playing First Division football before that year’s rebranding exercise by The FA (Football Association). Since then, they had gone on to become one of only seven teams who had featured every single campaign since then, with their highest finish being 4th place under David Moyes' leadership back during 2004-05, when they also made it all way through to the semi-finals stage at both domestic cup competitions before losing out narrowly against eventual winners Arsenal & Manchester United respectively.
Under current manager Carlo Ancelotti, Everton is looking forward to making more history this season, having already qualified for the UEFA Europa Conference league competition next term while still pushing hard inside the top four spots within the Premier League standings despite some critical injuries suffered throughout the 2020/21 campaign so far! This will be an excellent opportunity for them financially and from a competitive point of view due to the potential exposure gained from European nights after a long absence away from the continental scene since the 2017/18 UEFA Europa League group phase elimination. It's safe to say that the future looks bright ahead of the Merseyside blues faithful supporters base across the globe!
1879 – Present / Everton Football Club
1878 - 1879 / St. Domingo Football Club
The Blues, The Toffees - Everton Football Club is one of the oldest and most successful teams in the English Premier League. Founded in 1878, Everton has played competitive football for over 140 years, winning nine league titles and five FA Cups. Like many teams from this era, Everton has a long-standing nickname that dates back to their earliest days as a club: The Toffees.
The origins of this name are slightly unclear, but two popular theories behind it have become widely accepted by fans across Merseyside today. The first theory suggests that 'Toffee' was adopted due to an old local business operating near Goodison Park - home of Everton FC since 1892 - called 'Mother Noblett's Toffee Shop.' It is believed that locals would refer to those who supported or attended games at Goodison Park as ‘Toffees’ because they had come from Mother Noblett's shop!
The second theory claims that ‘Toffee’ was used simply because it rhymed with ‘Everton,’ which made sense given how much people liked alliteration during Victorian times when the team was founded! Regardless of their origin, both stories were around during the early 1900s when newspapers began referring to supporters as "the ever-faithful band" or "the faithful army."
Whatever its actual beginnings, one thing remains certain: The Toffees will always remain close to our hearts here on Merseyside and continue being proudly worn on shirts throughout stadiums across England every weekend!
