Omar founded the DC Toffees in 2011 and served as its president from 2011-2014.
John has been the President of the DC Toffees since 2014, succeeding club founder Omar Roque. John has been an Everton supporter since 2010 and makes regular trips to the UK to see his beloved Toffees play. John's goals are to expand the DC Toffees and provide a fantastic atmosphere for fellow Everton supporters in the DC area to watch their club.
Established in 2011, the DC Toffees provides a friendly atmosphere for Everton supporters in the DC metro area to watch matches. Our numbers have skyrocketed since our founding. We began with a little over a dozen members, and are proud to now have over 300 members registered with us.
We meet for every match, regardless of kickoff time, at Fado's Irish Pub in Chinatown, across from the Verizon Center. We are proud to call Fado's our home as the staff have been tremendous to us and we are the largest football supporters' club to call Fado's home.
Membership is completely free. The DC Toffees falls under the umbrella of Everton USA, the official supporters' organization for Everton in the United States. Everton USA is made up of 60 supporters' clubs across the country with our ranks swelling to beyond 30,000 members.
Rob started supporting Everton in 2008. Rob's interest was cemented in 2011 when the Toffees came to our nation’s capital for a friendly against DC United in 2011. It was the first time Rob realized that there were many other EFC supporters in my area. Now you can find him at the pub for most matches!
