Following discussions with Everton the following details for the 3rd Round FA Cup tie sponsored by E-ON have been agreed.

1. The match is ALL TICKET

2. In addition to the terracing behind the goal and normal away seating in the McAlpine Stand, Everton fans have also been allocated the small section of the London Road terrace (between the tunnel area and the away end). This represents a total of 2435 tickets.

3. The game will take place on Saturday 3rd January 2008 with a 3pm kick-off.

4. Tickets will go on sale to season ticket holders from Monday 8th December. Each season ticket holder will be entitled to one ticket as per their category of their season ticket.

5. Remaining tickets will go on general sale from 5pm on Saturday 20th December 2008. These will be limited to those fans having attended our home games with Bury and Dagenham & Redbridge. Vouchers will be handed out to fans entering the ground for these games, and both vouchers will be required to purchase a ticket.

6. Prices for the game are as follows:-

Adults- £20 seating / £16 standing

Over 60s – £16 seating / £14 standing

Under 16s – £12 seating / £10 standing

Unfortunately we are not able to offer free admission to our under 12 fans as per our league games.

7. We have a limited number of hospitality packages available in the Blues Bar. Our Match Day package in the McIlroy Suite is sold out.

‘The interest in the game has been unprecedented,’ explained Patrick Nelson. ‘It is the biggest game at the Moss since probably the visit of West Ham and it has really captured the imagination. We’ve already sold out of the £60 hospitality packages in the McIlroy Suite and it would be great to have the sold out signs around the place.’

‘In setting the prices we have tried to be fair, reflecting the magnitude of the game and reward our regular fans who will be coming along to our games with Bury and Dagenham. And hopefully it will encourage a few more to come along to guarantee themselves a ticket for the game. Everton have said they expect to sell out and if all goes well we will be up to capacity.’
