Everton have issued strict safety advice to supporters travelling to Split for Thursday's Europa League second leg - which includes NOT wearing club colours in or around the city before or after the match.

The advice follows crowd disturbances at Goodison Park during last week's first leg which saw the match halted for five minutes while stewards and police restored order.

Everton have sold out their 1,400 allocation for Thursday - but have specific advice for their travelling fans to follow.

Following a number of meetings with authorities in Split, both before and since the first leg, fans are being advised not to display flags outside bars and restaurants or in any public areas during their time in Croatia.

They are also advised not to wear club colours in or around Split before or after the match.

There will be a designated area in the city for fans to congregate before the match, accessible from 8am.

The gathering place is in Zvoncac Park near the marina at the end of the the coastal Riva promenande. The address is Setaliste Ivana Mestrovica BR3 and the gathering area in the park is adjacent to a bar called 'Jungle'.

All Everton supporters are advised to congregate in this location.

Any fans travelling by coach, minibus or car into Split on the day of the game should exit the motorway at Junction A1 (signposted SPLIT) and await a police escort into the Fan Zone. The junction will be accessible from 8am.

There will be bus shuttles departing Zvoncac Park at 6pm. There will be a fleet of buses shuttle-running fans to the stadium from the park from 6pm onwards. The bus transfers are free of charge and will be supported by an escort from local police.

The club has also been informed that any anti-social behaviour is likely to be dealt with robustly by local police, with supporters facing arrest and on-the-spot fines for offensive behaviour.

Any fans displaying signs of drunken behaviour will not be allowed entry into the stadium and may face arrest.

As for all fixtures, supporters are asked not to use pyrotechnics as this could result in police action and arrest.
