Be part of history . . .
The football club have made history by reaching the 2019/20 FA Vase Final due to be played at Wembley Stadium on Monday 3rd May 2021, a first in the clubs 109 year existence.
Over the past 12 months the world has encountered the worst pandemic ever known and unfortunately we are still seeing the impacts in society, our communities and of course our wonderful game of football.
Football community coming together
The FA Vase final is a momentous occasion for everyone associated with the football club and would usually be celebrated with thousands of Hebburn Town and non-league fans alike travelling to Wembley (London) to cheer the lads on, however the Covid-19 pandemic has meant the authorities have deemed the fixture "Behind Closed Doors"
Although we can't be together at Wembley the football club want to bring the local community, football fans all over the world, non league fans & of course our Hebburn Town faithful fans together by raising vital funds for the club and 3 great causes/charities in the North East.
The football club has teamed up with Hebburn Town Juniors (Hebburn Town Jnrs), Hebburn Helps Food Bank & Crisis Centre (Hebburn Helps) and Motor Neurone Disease Association ( MND) to put this scheme in place with all proceeds (after costs) being donated evenly between the selected groups under what we have called our #hornetsinthecommunity campaign. You can find out more about each group in the link here ..Good Causes
Be there with a virtual ticket
After seeing the success of Marine FC & Sunderland AFC virtual ticket campaigns we have been given the permission from the Football Association (FA) to accept general donations to our campaign or spectators can purchase a Virtual Memento Ticket and/or a special printed FA Vase Cup Final programme via our dedicated CrowdFunder page.
We will distribute the rewards in two batches, the first batch to be delivered before the FA Vase Final on Monday 3rd May (payment needs to be made by Friday 23rd April), the second batch will be delivered before 30th May (post the FA Vase Final).
Donations of any kind will help support the good causes listed immensely, so please get behind the team, the staff and the club overall so we don't just have a excellent day but we can also make a huge difference in our community.
If we were to have spectators/fans at Wembley Stadium the club would have received an allocation of 3,269 tickets, we'd love to aim for that target to sell our Virtual Tickets, so go on get behind the campaign.
