At tomorrow’s match with Northampton Town, Exeter City will be helping with the launch of the Exeter Live Better programme.
The football club, which prides itself on the work it does in the community to help the City become a healthy and vibrant place to live, will be helping spread the word of Exeter City Council’s Exeter Live Better programme. Players will be wearing appropriate warm-up tops to get the message across and the club’s media team will be spreading the word via social media and website articles.
A spokesman for Exeter City Council’s Exeter Live Better programme, said: “Exeter Live Better has been created to provide information for people who want to find out more about what Exeter has to offer.
“It is also a set of guidelines for our partners to allow them to communicate about Exeter with consistency. We want the narrative to be owned by individuals and organisations committed to playing a full part in the promotion of the city.
“Among many other partners, Exeter City Football Club are fully committed to playing a fundamental role in Exeter Live Better. You’ll see Exeter Live Better on their website, on their social media and on the back of their warm up kit.
“Exeter is smart and confident enough to do things differently when appropriate. Not different for its own sake. Different in order to make life better for everyone who lives, studies and works here.
“Exeter has played a pivotal role in the life of the peninsula for centuries. But regional resonance is no longer enough. And Exeter is now one of the UK’s most successful cities, on so many measures.
“Such as: consistent economic growth; education and research (world-leading in environmental science, for example); fluency in technology/data; innovation across the board.
“We are positioning Exeter as ‘the brilliant alternative’. Yes, it offers great lifestyle. But we go further, and incorporate the fundamental elements of what contributes to a great life.Our mantra is: ‘Exeter. Live Better’.
Match day prices from January 2019 mean that matches at St James Park will still remain accessible to as many supporters as possible, without compromising the vital revenue stream which comes from ticket sales.
The price increase affects all league matches taking place from January 1, 2019 onwards. Matches that take place in January, but go on sale in December 2018 will be subject to the increase.
Prices have increased by £1 for adults, seniors, and students, with under-18 prices increasing by £1.50. These increases help to offset the increased club operating costs and marks the first increase in two years.
For the majority of games, you can still buy tickets on the gate. However, advance priced tickets allow supporters to make savings compared to the gate/booth prices by buying ahead of the game and allow fans to pick their seat. The IP Office Main Stand also regularly sells out so if you want to purchase seated ticket the club strongly recommends that you do so in advance.
Admission prices FROM January 2019:
|Thatchers Big Bank||Ticket Prices|
