Ahead of this years's EFL cup final between Aston Villa and Manchester City on Sunday, March 1, the Trust and club are happy to announce that once again we will should have three pairs of EFL Cup Final tickets on offer for Trust members to buy.
As a 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 hope to have six tickets for each team (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 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 hopefully will have six 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 one hour and 45 mins after kick off (if completed in 'normal' time), two hours and 20 mins after kick off (if extra time is played) or up to two hours and 50 mins after kick off (if extra time and penalties are required).
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 in them as described above.
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.
Any questions just ask me. It is probably quickest to call but I will obviously attempt to answer e-mails as well.
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.
I am happy to receive applications by phone, in writing, or by e-mail to me using my normal contact details as listed below but these need to reach me by midnight on Wednesday, February 20.
Once the winners are announced you will then need to collect the tickets from Reception at St James Park; from the Shop or ticket collection point at our home match versus Crawley on Saturday 29 Feb; have them posted out at your own risk if you are unable to get down to the Park; or arrange alternative delivery methods such as my bringing them up to London for you to collect at a convenient location prior to the weekend of the game.
To apply, please send your details to Neil LeMilliere in the listed order:
