The opponents for the friendly to mark Fans’ Day on 3rd August 2019 are set, and once again will bring a certain international flair. Werder will face English side FC Everton at home in the Weser-Stadion.
Like in previous years, Werder will mark their pre-season with a friendly against a club from England’s top flight. FC Everton are without a doubt amongst the most renowned clubs in England. The Toffees have won nine Premier League titles, five FA Cups and, just like Werder, one UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup. Everton finished this past season in eighth place in the Premier League and just missed out qualifying for Europe. The last time Werder faced Everton was nearly eight years ago. Werder were the winners during a friendly ahead of the 2011/12 season thanks to a goal from Sandro Wagner.
Fans’ Day will officially start at 13:00 CEST, with the friendly set to kick off later that afternoon (15:00 CEST). Tickets will be available as of 17th June 2019 online at werder.de, at the ticket centre in the Weser-Stadion or per telephone at 0421 - 43 45 90.
