Ballot open for Man City mascot packages

Eleven lucky season card holders will have the chance to become mascots for City’s Carabao Cup semi-final second leg tie with Manchester City.

Interest in the fixture on Tuesday, January 23rd (7.45pm) has been huge, with City in their first major semi-final since 1988/89.

The club has also been inundated with requests for mascot packages for the second leg.

Subsequently, the club has chosen to operate a ballot procedure, like for the previous round against Manchester United, with season card holders able to apply by email. The lucky winners will then be chosen at random.

The youngsters will walk out with the two teams on the night, in front of a worldwide TV audience.

The mascot package will cost £150 and the ballot is open to all Under-12 season card holders, who must have already purchased their ticket for the game.

The package includes:

- Pre-game tour of the home dressing room
- Meet the City playing squad
- Pitchside warm-up ahead of the game
- Photo in the commemorative programme
- Walk out with the teams in front of the Sky Sports cameras
- Photograph with the two captains

Please note the package does not include a full replica home kit, which must be supplied and worn on the night by each mascot.

To apply for the ballot parents must email their U12 season card holder’s name and Supporter ID to mascot@bcfc.co.uk. The deadline is midday on Wednesday, January 10th.

The winners will be contacted by no later than Friday, January 12th.
