Goodison Park to host mass testing Event for supporters

Evertonians are renowned as the beating heart of Everton Football Club, and now Everton in the Community is offering supporters and local residents the chance to get their heart checked at Goodison Park as part of its commitment to empowering its communities towards better health.

Everton’s official charity is offering free heart health checks to anybody over the age of 40 to help identify suspected cardiovascular conditions and enable people to receive earlier diagnosis and treatment.

In partnership with Pumping Marvellous, the UK’s leading heart failure charity, the screening event will take place on Wednesday 17 and Thursday 18 July between 10am until 2pm. Those wishing to attend can head to the Park End reception where they’ll be greeted on arrival.

No sign-up is required; attendees can just turn up on the day, however, please note that queues are likely. 

Everyone who comes along to get screened will be entered into a prize draw to win one of the following prizes*:

  • Stadium Tour for two people.
  • Match ticket for the first home game of the 24/24 season.
  • 24/25 adult home shirt.

When attendees arrive, they’ll be asked to fill in a simple questionnaire before a simple non-invasive blood pressure and heart rhythm check. Further investigations can be carried out on the day if required. 

The event is free and welcomes anybody over the age of 40 to get tested, particularly if they’re experiencing feelings of breathlessness, exhaustion or have ankle swelling. 

Heart failure impacts over one million people and in Merseyside, the cases are higher than the national average. Heart failure is treatable, and if detected earlier, people may have better outcomes. 

Please note that prizes cannot be exchanged or redeemed for cash value.
