Why Is the Everton Soccer Team Called the Toffees?

Nobody knows for sure, but many people believe the Everton soccer team is called the Toffees because a shop owner used to give toffee to fans during game days. Despite the unclear origin, the nickname has stuck around.

The Everton soccer team is named after a small village that was part of Old England in the northwest region of the country. Later, it merged into Liverpool, which is now where the soccer team plays its home games at Goodison Park, which can hold more than 40,000 fans.

The team colors are blue and white, although they wear black during away games. In the 2012-13 season, the team took 6th place with their leading scorer, Marouane Fellaini.
