About Exeter City

The club was founded in 1901 and was the first team to play the Brazil national team in 1914. The club has been owned by the Supporters’ Trust since 2003 and has since gone from strength to strength. Exeter City is nationally renowned for it’s Academy which has produced Premier League and International stars Ollie Watkins and Ethan Ampadu, as well as providing players for the first-team.

St James Park has been the Grecians home since 1903. The stadium’s capacity is roughly 8,500. St James Park consists of four stands, with the heart of the support in the Thatchers Big Bank, the largest standing terrace in the Football League.

The Selco Builders Warehouse Main Stand is an all-seated standing housing 2,100 supporters, running the length of the pitch, it offers a great view of the action at both ends of the ground. In 2018 the Stagecoach Adam Stansfield Stand opened, which houses 1,600 supporters and remembers Grecian legend Adam Stansfield. Away fans are housed in the covered Tracks Suzuki St James Road Terrace which houses 1,000 supporters. 350 seats are also available in the Selco Builders Warehouse Main Stand.
