Dear Everton Supporters Club honchos,
My name is David Kurtz and I'm a loyal Evertonian in Venice, CA. I think I speak for all US Evertonians when I say, we're very excited to host the team and supporters this summer in the inaugural International Champions Cup. I hope you all are thinking about making a US holiday of it but regardless, I wanted to send on some info about the pre-season tour as it take shape. Please feel free to pass this on, post it where you like and add your members to the invites. It would be great to turn this into an International Everton Reunion so I hope your group represents in the US summer sun.
I'm happy to say that there is a section at each game reserved for Everton Supporters which will go on sale later in the week through ticketfly.com. The links below for each Facebook Event Page for the US Tour contain info on Everton Supporters ticketing, hotel options and group meetups in each city. Any other questions, feel free to direct my way or to Marshall Lamm (firstname.lastname@example.org or @MLPR510t) who will be hosting us all in the Bay Area. I believe the Club is putting together some team meet & greets and/or open practices at each spot as well. I'll update the pages below as I learn more from them. Any other questions, feel free to direct my way or to Marshall.

In Miami, we a block of 1000 tickets secured for Everton Supporters. The section location and prices are not established yet but will be forthcoming soon. We will put them onsale by June 6th at ticketfly.com and through links I'll post around. We've held a block of 50 rooms at Shula's Hotel & Resort (http://www.donshulahotel.com/) for the 2 nights Aug. 6-7. Shula's offered the best combo of quality, proximity and economics so we pulled the trigger. It's a favorite with the NFL so they should be ready for proper Everton party to come through. We'll offer a hotel/ticket package for singles/doubles/triple occupancy soon too.
For now, if you want to reserve any of these tickets let us know and we'll set tickets aside for you and your groups until we know the details. If groups who are paying separately want to sit together, please send us your guest list and we will ensure you are seated together.
The first ????-era Everton games, four world-class matches, seven great clubs, two days of scousing it up in Miami....what other excuses do you need?!?! We are all excited for this global Everton party and especially to tip a pint with all the Evertonians in beautiful Miami or California. Please invite your fellow Evertonians to this page and expect many updates coming soon.... With a new manager and some new faces, an International Champions Cup would be a nice piece of silverware to kick off the season. I hope to see you all in the States, please pass/invite/add all the Evertonians who might be interested and don't hesitate to fire any questions to me or Marshall (cc'd here). COYB!
