Put your name in the hat to win the Trust ticketsCRYSTAL PALACE take on Manchester United in this season's Emirates FA Cup Final, and once again Exeter City Supporters' Trust will be running a draw for some of the tickets that the club are provided.
The match takes place at Wembley Stadium and will kick-off at 5:30pm on Saturday May 21st.
We are pleased to announce that once again Exeter City Football Club are leading the way as a Trust-majority-owned-club, and are offering around fifty per cent of the Cup Final tickets they are entitled to for entering the FA Cup to the Trust Membership.
The club has to buy them from Wembley first and they will then be sold on, at cost of course, to those that win the right to buy in a free-to-enter draw for all paid-up members as of Wednesday May 3rd.
See below for details of how you, as a Trust member, can apply to be in with a chance of buying a pair of these tickets. The closing date for applications will be 12 noon on Friday May 13th, and the draw will then happen that evening or the following day (subject to the arrival of the tickets*). We will then contact the winners and the results will be announced ASAP afterwards.
In line with all clubs in the Premier and Football Leagues, League 2 clubs are entitled to buy ten tickets [in pairs] from the FA for the FA Cup Final.
These ten tickets will probably be split between the Crystal Palace and Manchester United sections of the ground, but will definitely be in the 'posh' seats, probably above the benches, as they are Category 1 tickets so are excellent seats.
They will be priced at the premium rate of either £115 each [so £230 a pair] and it is quite possible that all tickets will be for one club section, though equally those sitting around you will be other supporters from the football family so could actually be supporters of other clubs.
*We unfortunately will not know until they arrive how many tickets we will have and for which section but the Trust will have two or three pairs available for members to buy.
Should you want tickets to support one team or the other and you end up in the wrong section, you should be fine - but you will not be able to wear the wrong colours and of course you would have to celebrate or cry quietly!
