Musical will tell story of Exeter v Brazil match

An appeal has gone out for volunteers to take part in a new musical that'll tell the story of the first match between Exeter and Brazil that took place in 1914.

The original game between the Grecians and what many people regard as the world's best football side was Brazil's first ever international game. The musical is being staged as part of the centenary celebrations, which also include a rematch in Rio.
