Right-to-buy draw for Trust members
FA Cup final
Arsenal v Chelsea
Saturday, May 27
Exeter City Supporters’ Trust is pleased to announce that once again the football club are leading the way as a trust majority owned club and offering around 50 per cent of the cup final tickets they are entitled to for entering the FA Cup, to the Trust membership to buy, writes Trust board member Neil Le Milliere.
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 at the date of this notice – Thursday, May 4.
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 12pm on Friday, May 19, and the draw will then happen that evening or the following day (subject to the arrival of the tickets).
In line with all clubs in the Premier League and Football Leagues, League Two clubs are entitled to buy eight tickets (in pairs) from the FA for the FA Cup final.
These eight tickets will probably be split between the Arsenal and Chelsea sections of the ground, but will definitely be in the 'posh' seats as they are category one tickets.
They will be priced at the premium rate of £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 pairs available for members to buy.
In all honesty 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 quietly.
