The Merseyside derby is a football rivalry between two clubs in Liverpool, England – Everton F.C. and Liverpool F.C. It is named after Merseyside, which is where Liverpool is. It has been played every season since the 1962–63 season. The two club's stadiums are very near to each other, with Anfield (Liverpool F.C.) and Goodison Park (Everton F.C.) being 1 mile (1.6 km) away from each other on each side of Stanley Park.
