Cup final ticket information

Cup final ticket information

There is no real info on the way FA cup final tickets will be distributed yet, and as the Pompey Site has reported, nothing will be known until after a meeting with the FA next week.

I know we want to just enjoy the moment, and let the thought that we are FA cup finalists sink in - and rightly so - but we must all too be thinking I want to be there...but clearly we will not all be able to - but one thing that we do know, or at least think we know is that we will not have as many tickets available for the final as we did the semi final, 25,000 is the likely figure, so that will be even more interesting and the battle for tickets even more intense.

Season ticket holders should without any shadow of a doubt be going, and getting first crack - and rightly, but how the others will go is anyone's guess... we will all have theories but we should know for sure between next Friday and the Monday following, so that gives us almost a week to enjoy the moment without worrying too much about can I get a ticket...

PLAY UP POMPEY!

One problem is the 25,000 includes those tehe club will want for sponsors, players and staff etc. Scummers when they reached the final took 3,000+ out I was told last week.

I really hope we can enjoy the moment before the ticket frenzy starts again.

Season ticket holders who have already bought 08/09 season ticket should get priority. At least there will be enough tickets to cover season ticket holders unlike at the 'bigger' clubs. How ridiculous is it though that there will only 50,000 supporters in a stadium with 90,000+ people.

First we should think about the Cup Final suits, the Final record and learning the words to 'Abide with me'! It is going to be a long siw weeks.

The news are running the story about us in Europe (again) what are our chances of this back up plan if (heaven forbid) we lose the final? I must say Cardiff looked OK today and they have a few experienced stars in the line up. We'll need to perform better than yesterday thats for sure!

holdz, tbh i dont agree - yep i will again be a season ticket holder next season but i dont feel this should, nor will it give me any right to get a ticket for the final - those that have been season ticket holders this season will and should get first crack of the whip without question... 'if' they decide that season ticket holders for 08/09 can get some advantage then i will be happy, but i just cannot see it tbh as some 'probably' will be jumping on the bandwago for next season wont they, so why should they go to wembley this season as a ticket holder for this season?
spot on tho with the 40,000 going to 'others', you can understand some, but 40,000 is just wrong 25,000 tickets for fans of each club in a cup final at a stadium that holders 90,000 is just wrong...

Vital View - League 2, 18th February 2017

Doncaster's winless run went on but they remain three points ahead of Plymouth. Carlisle are a further two points back. Leyton Orient and Newport hold the unwanted relegation places.

Video - Barnet 1-1 Pompey

A late Barnet goal looked as though it would end Pompey's unbeaten run but Conor Chaplin proved the saviour when he scored a last minute equaliser to earn a point in a 1-1 draw.
