What's it like? Goodison is an old-fashioned stadium with around 1,000 Swans fans expected to be sat in the Bullens Road Stand, which at the side of the pitch.
Pies available are Scouse, steak and cheese and onion. Also sold are sausage rolls and burgers, Chang lager, bitter and small bottles of white wine. Please note, alcohol isn't sold 15 minutes before kick-off.
Hotels: Some popular hotels in the city centre are The Adelphi, Holiday Inn, The Nadler and The Adagio or for those on a budget, The Printwork Hotel. The only places near Goodison Park are St Hilda Hotel (L4 4AH), The King Harry Bar & Hostel (L4 0RY) and Stanley Park Hotel (L4 0TF).
Pubs and grub: Behind the Park Stand is a small outdoor fanzone serving food and alcohol. A 15-minute walk away from the away fans entrance is a Wetherspoons, The Thomas Frost (L4 4AJ), with home and away fans allowed in there.
Bradleys Wine Bar (L4 4AZ) is just further down and across the road which also sells beers and real ales. Nearby are The Spellow (L4 4EN) and Wilnslow Hotel (L4 4EH). Taxicab Drivers Sports & Social Club (L4 6UF) charges £1 for entry.
The city centre is has plenty of options for a pre-match drink. Near Lime Street Station there is The Vines (L1 1JQ) next to the Adelphi; nearer Goodison The Fall Well is a Wetherspoons across the road from Lime Street Station, and, at the station itself, is the North Western (L1 1RJ) - another Wetherspoons - and the nearby Crown (L1 1JQ), who do an extensive food menu.
Parking: There are two ways to Everton from Swansea - through mid-Wales (180 miles) and motorways (237 miles), both take about the same amount of time. If you arrive about two hours before kick-off there's street parking around Walton Lane. Alternatively, park over towards Anfield or in Stanley Park itself for £8 (the entrance to the car park is in Priory Road). At the Walton Lifestyles Sports Centre (L4 9XP) you can park for £7. It's a 15-minute walk to the ground with food options including a Chinese chip shop on the way.
Parking there means you're away from the traffics jams after the match at Stanley Park, and just five minutes from the motorways.
By train: The main station is Lime Street and over three miles from the ground. Either head for Kirkdale station or get a taxi (about £8). You can catch a bus from the bus station - a seven-minute walk away from Lime Street and well signposted. The 19, 19a, 20, 21 or 311 will drop you right outside the ground for about £2, with the journey time tallying around 15-25 minutes depending on traffic.
The best way from the city centre on public transport is the Merseyrail Northern Line to Sandhills to catch the Soccerbuses.
If buying train tickets in Liverpool, ask for a return to Goodison Park, as the train ticket is valid for the Soccerbus.
Both Sandhills and Kirkdale stations can be reached by getting a train from Liverpool Lime Street to Liverpool Central, changing there.
After the game you may want to grab a taxi into Liverpool, or walk to Kirkdale station.
The Soccerbus is normally very full, plus you can wait up to 30 minutes due to big queues, then 20 minutes or so for the bus to make its way from the ground.
Trains to Liverpool Lime Street are 6.46am, 7.44am, 8.55am and 9.52am, getting in at 11.21am, 12.21pm, 1.21pm and 2.21pm. Trains back leave at 6.04pm and 7.04pm, getting into Swansea at 11.15pm and 11.59pm.
