Brazilians to be allowed into St James's Park for free for Wimbledon match
Exeter City are allowing anybody with a Brazilian passport into their ground to watch the game against AFC Wimbledon later this month for free.
The match on Saturday, August 17, is the Grecians’ designated ‘Brazil Day’ for this season, where the club celebrates their links and heritage with Brazil that began 99 years ago.
Simply by showing their passport at reception in advance of the day of the game, Brazilians in the South West can come along and help add to the carnival atmosphere.
There will be plenty of Brazil-themed entertainment on offer, including samba band, who will be providing an on-pitch performance, and Brazilian television station Globo TV will once again be visiting St James's Park for the fixture to run a report on the club.

Fans are being urged to show their colours at the match too – whether that’s the Grecians’ red and white, or a Brazilian yellow – to help to turn the Park into a vibrant, colourful venue.
It was announced last month that Exeter City will be going back to Rio de Janeiro in July 2014 to play a commemorative friendly fixture against Fluminense, marking 100 years of history between Exeter City and Brazil. Brazil’s first ever match as a nation came against the touring Exeter City side in 1914.
Exeter City chief executive Julian Tagg said: “We’re delighted to welcome our Brazilian friends with open arms to St James Park for the AFC Wimbledon match, where we’ll be celebrating an important and unique relationship that we have with Brazil and their whole footballing culture.
“Brazil and its people are a big part of our own history as a club, and they are always welcome at St James Park. We would love to see a big Brazilian contingent for the Wimbledon game, to help make it a colourful and energetic atmosphere.”
