FA Cup Warrington V Exeter BBC2 7.30pm - TonightWARRINGTON Town’s FA Cup run could be worth more than £100,000 to the club.
The Yellows will pocket £67,500 after their first round tie with League Two Exeter City, which was chosen by BBC Two to be broadcast live on Friday night.
With qualification for the first round alone worth £12,500 in prize money, the club have already made £29,425 for making it through five stages.
“For us to get a live television game at home against a Football League club is brilliant,” explained chairman Toby Macormac.
“I’ve said it before but you can’t go out and buy this exposure. We’ve been absolutely inundated and the way it has been embraced by people who may not have been down before is fantastic.”
Friday’s game at Cantilever Park is a 2,500 sell-out, while Town have experienced higher than average gates in the previous rounds.
