THE JUNIOR GRECIANS FAMILY ZONE
At the start of the 2017/18 season, The Grecian Centre, just off Red Square, became home to the new Junior Grecians Family Zone. The Junior Grecians are the Official Junior Supporters Club of Exeter City FC. Open on most matchdays, the Family Zone is available for use by all family visitors to St James Park.
Junior Grecians members have exclusive use of the Zone from 12:30 until it is available to all families at 1:30. The room provides a safe comfortable environment for families to enjoy pre-match entertainment, such as a large screen TVs, Playstation consoles and Table Football, as well as the option to enjoy refreshments from the Zone’s very own kiosk.
The Grecian Centre has undergone refurbishment and been transformed into a modern family friendly environment featuring images of Junior Supporters taken during last season. A feature wall displaying a packed Big Bank also provides a photo-sharing opportunity using the #jgzone hashtag. There are activities and competitions to suit all junior age groups, from FIFA17 and Table Football tournaments to free Activity Packs for younger children.
The Zone also features a VIP party area and there are several party packages available to book throughout the season.
The Family Zone and Stadium Family areas are supervised by Junior Grecians volunteers who have undergone DBS checks and our aim is to make a family visit to St James Park as enjoyable and trouble-free as possible.
Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of the City Community Trust (formerly ECFC FITC), who manage the Junior Grecians, the Football Club, the Supporters Trust, and not to mention the efforts put in by our Junior Grecians volunteers themselves.
Other City Supporters Groups have generously contributed to the project, including the Senior Reds, Grecian Goal and the Exec Club, thus demonstrating our One Club ethos.
We are enormously grateful to all our sponsors, with the Junior Grecians Ball Boy/Girl team being supported again by the Unicorn Hotel, Somerton, and our free Junior Matchday Programme being sponsored by Kingfisher Print & Design of Totnes. We would also like to say a big thank you to Tesco Exeter Vale for their very valued donation to the room.
We are also very excited to have teamed up with sponsors Crealy Adventure Park and Resort as well as Domino’s Exeter and by the member opportunities provided by our partnerships. We are grateful for the enthusiasm and support that these local businesses have shown Exeter City FC, the Junior Grecians and the Family Zone.
