Brazilians come free to Wimbledon game!

9 August 2013

St James Park offering free entry to Brazilian passport-holders

Exeter City v AFC Wimbledon on Saturday 17th August is our designated ‘Brazil Day’ for this season, where we celebrate our links and heritage with Brazil that began 99 years ago.

And to mark Exeter City’s bond with our South American friends, any Brazilian passport-holders can come to St James Park to see the Grecians take on AFC Wimbledon for absolutely FREE!

Every year the Park takes up a carnival atmosphere for our Brazil Day, and once again we’re delighted to be hosting the event at the Park on Saturday 17th August.  There will be plenty of Brazil-themed entertainment on offer, including samba band Samba Marcianas who will be providing an on-pitch performance.

Moreover, Brazilian television station Globo TV will once again be visiting St James Park for the fixture to run a report on our club and our fans.  Rede Globo is the second-largest television network in the world with a huge audience worldwide.

Remember to show your colours at the match too – whether that’s the Grecians’ red and white, or a Brazilian yellow – help to turn the Park into a vibrant, colourful venue and join in with the fun!

And if you are Brazilian, or if you know someone with a Brazilian passport who would be interested in coming, make sure to take advantage of this unique opportunity to get free entry to St James Park to cheer on the Grecians.

It’s a great time to be cementing our relationship with our Brazilian brethren, following last month’s announcement that we’re going back to Rio de Janeiro in July 2014 to play a commemorative friendly fixture against Fluminense, marking 100 years of history between Exeter City and Brazil.

The Grecians’ chief executive Julian Tagg said: “We’re delighted to welcome our Brazilian friends with open arms to St James Park for the AFC Wimbledon match, where we’ll be celebrating an important and unique relationship that we have with Brazil and their whole footballing culture.

“Brazil and its people are a big part of our own history as a club, and they are always welcome at St James Park.  We would love to see a big Brazilian contingent for the Wimbledon game, to help make it a colourful and energetic atmosphere.”

The free-ticket offer is open to Brazilian passport-holders who bring their passport into Reception before close-of-play on Friday 16th August, on a one-per-person basis.
