Win tickets to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final

This is a story from the FSF archive – the FSF and SD merged to become the FSA in 2019.

We’re offering the chance for one lucky fan to get their hands on a pair of tickets for the final of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy between Carlisle United and Southampton at Wembley on Sunday March 28th for absolutely nothing. That’s right, free tickets! And these are not just any old tickets, either.

We’ve got two Club Wembley seats worth £150 each up for grabs, meaning you and a friend get the full treatment of a meal and drinks before the game and one of the best seats in the house from which to watch the match.

This competition is only open to FSF members, but if you’re not a member then don’t worry – it’s FREE to join! It only takes a matter of seconds (just your name, email and postal address), so sign up today to be in with a chance of winning. And if you’re thinking of being sneaky and entering the competition without being an FSF member, we’ll be checking all entries against our records!

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is answer this very simple question: Who were the sponsors of the Football League Trophy (from 2000 to 2007) before Johnstone’s Paint?

Simply drop us an email to with your answer, name and address (as well as the team you support) before 5pm on Wednesday 17th March to be in with a chance of winning.

Good luck!
