The deadline for members of the Exeter City Supporters' Trust to apply for a pair of Caraboa Cup final tickets has been extended to the end of play tomorrow, Saturday, February 17.
After the second semi-final legs we now know the teams involved in the EFL Cup Final will be Arsenal and Manchester City with kick-off at 4.30pm on Sunday, February 25.
Neil Le Milliere, a Trustee of the Exeter City Supporters' Trust, has the following message. Neil can be contacted via email email@example.com.
The Trust and Club are delighted to announce that once again we have three pairs of EFL Cup Final tickets on offer for Trust members to buy.
As a Football League Club, ECFC automatically enter the EFL Cup, and this entitles the Club to purchase a number of tickets for the Final. This year we hope to have six tickets for each team (the seats are on the side near the halfway line). These will be, as always, some of the best seats available and well worth the extra expense.
At most Clubs these are normally passed out or sold to Directors, Management or members of the playing staff but ECFC are continuing the policy of splitting the allocation between the Club and the Trust and this year we hopefully will have six tickets, available in three pairs for Trust members to buy.
We will not know which tickets we, the Trust have until they arrive.
Please note this match is subject to extra time and penalties if the score remains even at full time. The match could therefore finish approximately 1 hour and 45 mins after kick off (if completed in 'normal' time), 2 hours and 20 mins after kick off (if extra time is played) or up to 2 hours and 50 mins after kick off (if extra time and penalties are required).
You can only wear appropriate colours for whichever area you take tickets for. No colours from other teams, even our own, are allowed. However normally, whilst not wearing their colours, you can be [quietly] supporting the opposing team to the area you are in, as the area is normally friendly with supporters from various other teams in them as described above.
The other conditions that apply are that should you be successful you MUST use one yourself and then take whoever you like with you but you CANNOT take payment for the second ticket and you must sign a disclaimer covering these points when buying the tickets. A contract will be provided for signature.
Any questions just ask me. It is probably quickest to call but I will obviously attempt to answer e-mails as well.
If you wish to be entered for the draw for the right to buy one pair of tickets then please comply with the following instructions.
I am happy to receive applications by phone, in writing, or by e-mail to me using my normal contact details as listed below but these need to reach me by midnight Saturday, February 17. We will then announce the results as soon as possible.
Once the winners are announced you will then need to collect the tickets from reception at St James Park; have them posted out at your own risk if you are unable to get down to the Park; or arrange alternative delivery methods such as my bringing them up to London for you to collect at a convenient location prior to the weekend of the game.
To apply you need to supply me with the following details and in this order please:
Priority Number [you must be a Trust member as at the date of this e-mail to be eligible to enter and this will be checked]*:
