Founded in 1878, Everton was the first professional club in Liverpool. Everton was also one of the founding clubs of the Football League (in 1887). Nicknamed the Toffees, they play their home matches at Goodison Park. Their rivalry with Liverpool FC is matched by few rivalries in sports worldwide. The Merseyside derby (name given to the matches between the two clubs) was once one of the most violent in European football, especially during the 1970s, when hooliganism ran rampant in the English leagues. The violence has toned down a lot, but the rivalry is still very strong.
