MANSFIELD Town have revealed plans for a special Wembley Open Day on May Day, Bank Holiday 2nd May, at Field Mill from 10am.
The event, being staged together with the Stags Stags Supporters’ Association (SSA) will give fans the chance to get their Wembley merchanidise signed by players ahead of the FA Trophy final at Wembley on 7th May.
The club say this is the ideal opportunity for supporters to buy essential Wembley items ahead of the club’s second ever trip to the home of football.
The club’s ticket office will also be open from 10am onwards for supporters wishing to buy tickets for the big match.
As a bonus for fans, the club will be opening its doors free of charge to allow supporters to watch the players train on the Field Mill pitch from 11am.
The Stags’ Wembley heroes, along with manager Duncan Russell and his assistant Paul Hall will then be available to sign autographs and Wembley merchandise in the club’s Sandy Pate Bar afterwards.
Doors will open at 10am and food and drink will also be available on the day.
Chief Executive Steve Barker said: “There is already a great atmosphere sweeping through the club and the town and this day should be the perfect chance to buy both tickets and merchandise.
“It is important to us that people buy Wembley items from either the club or the SSA, as any merchandise bought at Wembley on the day of the final will not go back into the club’s purse.”
Added Dean Foulkes, chairman of the SSA: “I would encourage as many people as possible to come down and soak up the atmosphere, including all the pubs and clubs who have already booked buses and bought tickets.
“This is a great chance for them to grab any Wembley items which both we and the club are selling.”
