The EFL Carabao Cup Final will be between Manchester United and Newcastle United with kick-off time to be confirmed at Wembley Stadium.
The club hope to receive their full allocation of 12 tickets in six pairs. As is usual the club will keep three pairs to allocate and the Trust will have three pairs for the members draw.
To enter you have to have been a member of the Supporters' Trust before February 3, you can't purchase a new membership just to be included in the draw.
All six pairs will be £90 a ticket (£180 for a pair) and the Trust will have one pair for Manchester United; and two pairs for Newcastle United.
These three pairs will be available for the usual 'right to buy' draw amongst Exeter City Supporters Trust members. Therefore please feel free to apply now to be entered into the draw but first read all the blurb below and send all the details requested.
The Trust and Club are delighted to announce that once again we will have three pairs of EFL Cup Final tickets on offer for Trust members to buy.
As an English 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 have bought three pairs of tickets for Manchester United and the pairs of tickets for Newcastle (the seats are normally 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 all 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 havesix tickets, available in three pairs for Trust members to buy.
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). Getting away from the stadium can then also be quite a slow process. Last year kick-off was at 16:30.
More details can be found at the Wembley website here.
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 who have received them in the same way as ourselves.
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.
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 via Neil Le Milliere.
Neil is happy to receive applications by phone (02088020644 (H) 07946615889 (M), in writing, or by e-mail (email@example.com) by midnight on Thursday, February 9.
We will then hope to make the draw on Friday, February 10 and advise the winners ASAP afterwards, however we will not be making the draw until after we receive details about the tickets we are to receive so should that be delayed then we will delay the draw and I’ll advise all entrants.
Once the winners are announced you will then need to await confirmation that we have received the tickets which will be electronic. Once received by the club we envisage that they will be dispatched via email to you but there will be more information on this in due course.
To apply you need to supply Neil with the following details and in this order please:
