Exeter City supporters have snapped up an impressive 10,000 tickets in the first 24 hours of sales for their Wembley play-off final against Blackpool.

The Grecians booked their place in the final thanks a dramatic injury-time winner in their semi-final second leg, which gave them a 6-5 aggregate win over Carlisle United.

That win set up a match with Blackpool at Wembley Stadium on Sunday, May 28, for a place in League One next season and demand for tickets from Exeter supporters has been high.

Tickets for the decider against the Seasiders went on sale at 12pm on Friday and already 10,000 have been sold.

The club confirmed they have been allocated 20,000 tickets for the West End of Wembley Stadium.

The Exeter fans are expected to comfortably outnumber their Blackpool counterparts, who are boycotting the game in protest against the Oystons.

The Gazette's poll revealed that over two-thirds of Blackpool fans are expected to stay away.
