FA Cup Final 2017 – Trust Draw Details and Closing Date


FA Cup Final 2017 Arsenal v Chelsea

Saturday 27th May 2017 at Wembley Stadium
Kick off 17:30
Tickets for Exeter City Supporters Trust members

We are pleased to announce that once again Exeter City Football Club are leading the way as a Trust Majority Owned Club and offering around 50% of the Cup Final tickets they are entitled to for entering the FA Cup, to the Trust Membership to buy.

The club has to buy them from Wembley first and they will then be sold on, at cost of course, to those that win the right to buy in a free to enter draw for all paid up members as at the date of this notice (Thursday 4 May 2017).

Read on for details of how you, as a Trust member, can apply to be in with a chance of buying a pair of these tickets. The closing date for applications is 12 noon on Friday 19 May 2017 and the draw will then happen that evening or the following day (subject to the arrival of the tickets*). We will then contact the winners and the results will be announced ASAP afterwards.


In line with all clubs in the Premier and Football Leagues, Second division clubs are entitled to buy eight tickets [in pairs] from the FA for the FA Cup Final.

These eight tickets will probably be split between the Arsenal and Chelsea sections of the ground, but will definitely be in the ‘posh’ seats, probably above the benches, as they are Category 1 tickets so are excellent seats.

They will be priced at the premium rate of either £115 each [so £230 a pair] and it is quite possible that all tickets will be for one club section though equally those sitting around you will be other supporters from the football family so could actually be supporters of other clubs.

*We unfortunately will not know until they arrive how many tickets we will have and for which section but the Trust will have 2 pairs available for members to buy.

In all honesty should you want tickets to support one team or the other and you end up in the wrong section you should be fine but you will not be able to wear the wrong colours and of course you would have to celebrate or cry quietly!
