To win the tickets, fans are being encouraged to share their Second Round match day adventures using the hashtag, #CupStory. The best video clip or image – as voted for by the fans – will win the special prize, in what is sure to be a weekend of exciting football. Fans can experience a lot of emotions on an Emirates FA Cup match day; the singing in the concourse ahead of the game, watching in the pub, the rush for a half-time pie, the heartbreak and triumph after the final whistle and the epic road-trips which take place across the whole country.
Fans wanting to enter can share their adventure videos across a range of social media platforms including Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, and can enter more than once.
Whether fans are jumping in the car on the way to the ground, singing their hearts out on the supporters’ couch or popping into their local for a pre-match pint, we want them to share all of the pre and post-match excitement that comes with a weekend of Emirates FA Cup football.
Lucy Roberts-Hartley, Senior Brand Manager for the Emirates FA Cup said; “The Second Round of The Emirates FA Cup is a special weekend of football for the fans and players. Fans can begin to think of an away fixture at one of the Premier League’s biggest clubs, with potential giant killings on the cards. This is why we want to see the excitement and anticipation of the fan’s adventures before, during and after the game.
The Third Round draw can bring many unpredictable fixtures and these are sure to bring the best out of the fans. These are the moments we want fans to share in a bid to win tickets to any Third Round match of their choice. We can’t wait to see the supporters’ adventures on their own Emirates FA Cup journey.”
