FA Cup Tickets: Can We Achieve Four Figures?

By Chris Evans

Can we rise to the challenge and push our support at the enormous FA Cup match at Crawley Town into four figures this Saturday? A new set of dates have been arranged to sell the last remaining 195 terrace places in the away section at the Broadfield Stadium.

Glenn Pennyfather's Clarets aim to book a place in the Third Round amongst the Premier League sides by causing another upset at the Sussex-based Football League One club, having already knocked out neighbours Colchester United in front of a capacity home crowd last month. 984 tickets have already been snapped-up by eager Chelmsford fans, who are desperate not to miss more potential history unravelling.

The clubhouse at Melbourne will have tickets on sale this Thursday from 10:30am to 8:00pm and again on Friday from 5:00 to 8:00pm and fans are likely to purchase them quickly, so an early visit is recommended to avoid disappointment. The terrace tickets are priced as follows: Adults - £13.00; Over 65s - £9.00; 18 and under - £3.00.

Meanwhile, Crawley are also offering an executive hospitality package for supporters who'd like to see the big game in added luxury for £60.00 per person (including VAT). The package includes exclusive access to the stadium suite, a pre-match three-course meal with complimentary wine on the table, programmes and team sheets, dedicated seats in the Directors' Box and half time refreshments with tea, coffee and hot meat pies.

In addition, the executive package offers access to a licensed bar and Sky Sports on flat screen TVs for the latest scores. The dress code is smart/casual, so T-shirts, football shirts, hoodies, polo shirts, caps, trainers, hiking boots, torn or scruffy jeans and jogging bottoms will not be allowed, and the club reserves the right to refuse entry. For details, please call Gayle Vowels on (01293) 410006 or E-Mail

Fans are also being made aware that only official coach transport will be permitted close proximity to the stadium on matchday, and that the host club reserve the right not to allow admission to supporters who are intoxicated.
