Southend is off to Wembley...
Tickets for Blues’ first ever Wembley Cup final are now on general sale, and we’re asking for your help in getting 30,000 Blues fans to our historic game against Crewe Alexandra.
We’ve sold over 28,000 for the game on April 7th, kick-off 1:15pm.
With your help, we can make our target of 30,000 possible, and there’s lots of ways for you to get involved and help promote it.
Chief Executive Steve Kavanagh said “Wembley is a day out for the fans and I want them to be part of getting 30,000 Blues to Wembley. With your help and hard work, then I really believe this can be achieved. This is really a call to arms, we need everyone to get behind making this happen and help paint Wembley blue.”
You can download one of our posters, which are available below, and put them up in your shop window, house window or even on your car. Be imaginative and let us know what you are doing to help by tweeting us photos of you promoting the event.
If you work for a local business or at a local school, why not download some of the posters and put them up in your classrooms or distribute them to the pupils to make them aware of the big day. A limited amount of posters will be available at the main reception if you would like to come and collect some to put up around the town.
We want Wembley to be rocking with noise from the Blues faithful on April 7th, and we are sure that with your help Southend can take 30,000 fans to the game.
We’re also asking fans to help distribute flyers that we have printed, so if you would like to help do that, please get in touch.
On our social media sites, you can also do a lot to really push Blues’ trip to Wembley.
Any of your tweets about the big day, what you are doing to be part of the drive to 30,000, include the hashtag #paintwembleyblue – we’re going to attempt to get it trending. You can also share all the information we post on Facebook for your friends and family to see.
We will release more information about those two dates in due course.
