REDDITCH-based secure and essential communication solutions provider, Adare SEC, is playing a major role in this year’s Emirates FA Cup final after using its innovative printing technology to produce tickets for the world’s most famous football cup competition.
The iconic trophy visited the Adare SEC Redditch site, along with fans from Emirates FA Cup finalists, Manchester United and Crystal Palace, to see the first tickets coming off the production line for the showpiece match, which takes place at Wembley Stadium connected by EE on Saturday May 21.
For the first time in the 146 year history of The Emirates FA Cup, images captured by fans appear on the tickets for the final after a campaign on Instagram using #EmiratesFACup generated thousands of entries. The FA launched the competition ahead of Round 1 in November, with fans entering to win the chance to have their photo featured.
Adare SEC has been working closely with The FA for 12 years and produces thermal tickets for all Emirates FA Cup and England games held at Wembley Stadium, as well as producing tickets for many Premier League and football league clubs.
Barry Crich, managing director of Adare SEC, said: “The Emirates FA Cup Final is the jewel in the crown of the football calendar and we are incredibly proud to be associated with it here at Adare SEC.”
