Chiefs to be honoured at ‘virtual’ civic ceremony
Published: 10 November 2020
Exeter Chiefs fans will have another chance to see their all-conquering heroes on Thursday when players and representatives of the club take part in a ‘virtual’ civic presentation.
The Lord Mayor, Cllr Peter Holland, is to honour the Chiefs in an online ceremony which will be broadcast live on Facebook. The ceremony takes place at 3.45pm on Thursday and can be watched on the City Council’s Facebook page.
Last month the Chiefs completed a historic domestic League and European Cup double, bringing yet more silverware back to their Sandy Park home.
The trophies will be on display at Thursday’s ceremony. In normal circumstances there would have been a civic parade and presentation at Exeter’s historic Guildhall. However this has had to be scaled back to a virtual ceremony because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
