The minimum membership contribution is just £2.00 per month or £24 per year, however you are most welcome to contribute more if you wish and it is within your means.
If you require any further information regarding any Trust Membership issue, please email your query to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Membership Forms are available from:

Or you may download an application form
There are various way to pay your membership contribution:

Should you wish to pay by this method, it is imperative that you first contact The Trust Membership Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to confirm your contribution amount and be advised of your unique payments reference. This will be used to accurately identify your contribution(s) and to reconcile Trust bank statements.
Renewing your membership
Trust Membership may be renewed using any of the above processes.
Reminders of when membership contributions are due will be sent out by email and/or letter. Members are advised however that the onus for renewing their membership remains with them. Failure to renew your Trust Membership may result in loss of level of Priority Status.
I wish to increase my monthly membership subscription. How do I action this?
Members will be able to alter their standing order by contacting their branch either in person, or via telephone / internet banking. The Trust are unable to alter the standing orders that we receive. Standing Order payers who decide to increase their monthly/annual contributions must ensure that they use their “Unique Payments Reference” (i.e. Trust Priority Number/Surname) as their payment reference (in order to immediately recognise incoming payments) and also most importantly to inform Frank Sealey, Membership Coordinator at: trust.membership@exetercityfc.
Trust Membership and your Priority Status
As a member of The Trust your contribution goes directly towards supporting the playing budget. The Football Club does not have a rich benefactor and therefore relies almost entirely on income generated from Trust memberships.
In recognising the high importance of these contributions, loyal Trust Members are rewarded by the gaining of ‘highest priority’ in the event of a limited ticket allocation for any future games either at home or away.
How Priority Status is Achieved
Members holding GOLD priority status, (Trust Membership for 3 consecutive years, plus membership of one or more of other supporter groups), will receive the first option to purchase in the event of a limited ticket allocation.
Members holding SILVER priority status (Trust Membership for less than 3 consecutive years, plus membership of one or more of other supporter groups), will receive the second option to purchase in the event of a limited ticket allocation.
Members holding BRONZE priority status, (membership of any one supporter group), will receive the third option to purchase in the event of a limited ticket allocation.
COMMUNITY status, (those registered on the Community Database and known to the football club but with no affiliation to any supporter group), will then be given an opportunity to purchase, should there be any tickets remaining.
