We’re on our way to Wembley – and so are our 1,256 individual ‘cut out’ fans!
Thanks to Exeter City Supporters’ Trust generously covering the cost of transporting the cut outs, they will be making the 200 mile journey from Exeter to the capital free of charge to the fans who bought them.
And if you haven’t yet bought your cut out, there is still a chance to buy one and back the boys in the biggest game of the year. CLICK HERE to buy now, but hurry - the deadline to purchase is 10pm on Thursday, June 25!
Matt Taylor, Exeter City manager, said: "Although it was a surreal experience to play the match at St James Park without crowds, seeing all those faces in the stand was amazing for the lads. We’re really grateful to the Supporters’ Trust for donating the cost of delivering the cut outs to Wembley – our club really is something special and our fans are too, and this feels like a great way to thank them."
The club launched its Grecian in the Ground campaign for the play-off semi-finals when the coronavirus pandemic meant games had to be played without crowds. The final at Wembley Stadium will also be played without fans present.
The cutouts are made from polypropylene and are completely recyclable. The material is toxin-free so it won’t leach chemicals into the surrounding environment, additionally, it is durable, strong and weatherproof.
Exeter City marketing manager Scott Palfrey added: "We have been absolutely blown away by the support the fans have given us and also the amazing reaction we’ve had to this. We’re looking forward to seeing how many more we can get up to Wembley – to play their part in this massive game for our club.’
Orders will be taken until 10pm on Thursday, June 25. Any orders placed after this time will be used if subsequent games are played behind closed doors next season. Exeter City cannot take responsibility for any cutouts which may be damaged during a match.
