GRIMSBY Town Football Club are delighted to announce that we have been selected for overseas broadcasting for our 'FA Cup with Budweiser' fixture with Scunthorpe United.
As a result our kick-off time for the tie against the Iron has been brought forward to 1pm to maximise the overseas audience.
All tickets that have already been issued will still be valid.
Tickets for the game have now gone on sale to Mariners Trust members along with the ‘last day’ of restricted sales to season ticket holders and Rushall stub holders. The ticket frenzy has now slowed considerably from what it was on the first 3 days of sales and the number sold to Town fans is just approaching 3000. Scunthorpe United has reported that they already sold 500 on restricted sale to their season ticket holders.
We will now open up the internet for on-line ticket bookings from 3pm today, which will be processed as soon as possible from Saturday onwards. From 9am on Saturday there will be approximately 3500 tickets available with the best availability in the Main, Pontoon, and Upper Findus. The Lower Findus is already close to selling out and will no doubt be sold out on Saturday.
Season ticket holder seats will be reserved until 5pm on Tuesday 5th November 2013 and any remaining unclaimed after this date may be put on general sale.
