The Mick George Stand is all-ticket, while tickets will be on sale for the Jakemans Town End Stand and the Spayne Road Terrace (despite both areas NOT being all-ticket).

Home supporters will NOT be able to purchase York Street Stand tickets at this stage.

United season ticket holders and BUSA members will be able to purchase tickets exclusively on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (a maximum of four tickets per transaction).

All Mick George Stand season ticket holders are guaranteed their seats (but must purchase a ticket to secure its use).

General sale will get under way at 9.00am on Monday.

This may mean the York street end will be for Rochdale supporters only, but if I have to move so be it, I will just be thankful to watch the game from another position. I have only missed one game home and away this season and that was at Hednesford when I was in hospital having heart surgery. I started supporting BUFC in 1946/7 season and my first big FA cup game was against Oldham.

I believe Rochdale will be selling tickets in advance, and will presumably sell out the current away end... especially as they are offering free coach travel with each ticket. I'd expect them to sell 500 or so.

Tickets flying out the door at YS today. Staff said it had been constant on the phones and in person all day without let up. 6 queuing when I went in at 2.30. Sandra aslo said 150 new BUSA members on top (no doubt wanting to be in the frontrunners for Newcastle tickets).

Called in for my ticket at 12 ish and the ladies were exhausted. Again today non stop demand, I would recommend that if you can you need to get a ticket for this one as it could easily sell out.   UTP.

I was in at 10:30 this morning and the ladies in the office are worried that all the tickets will go before the night and pay to enter will not be possible.

Difficult to judge that isn't it as it's only ST and BUSA members who can buy at the moment, you'd expect a large majority of those to attend anyway? Or have they had loads and loads of others rock up at the office who aren't able to buy at the moment?

I was a little dubious but season ticket holders can get up to four tickets.
I don't think it will sell out myself.

4 tickets per transaction...

I would hope they would announce if they get down to the last 500 tickets or so, so people maybe expecting to pay on the gate can purchase in advance.

Is that season ticket holders that can have 4 tickets,  or does that apply to BUSA members as well?

Both season ticket holders and BUSA members can buy up to 4 tickets.

Around 500 season tickets, and I would imagine 200 BUSA... some people will be both.

Sandra said 150 joined BUSA on Thursday just to get access to replay tickets (and presumably later games if we progress). We are Main Stand ST holders but after the Rochdale away experience feel the only place we can be on 16th is Town End. Drove from the other side of Grantham to ensure got tickets because quite sceptical Town End will be available as pay-on-the-gate on the night.

Message on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/BostonUnitedSupportersAssociation/ - or call in at ticket office, or in Pilgrim Lounge before/after a home game.

Info not quite right there Prof BUSA have generated 150 new members prior to and during this recent Cup run and before the  Newcastle draw was made, NOT since Thursday and in fact we are not taking new members at the moment.
We have 300 members and there are 400+ season ticket holders.

Busy morning at the ground, credit to the ladies sorting the tickets.

Over 2,500 tickets sold already,  not counting away tickets.

I think current home allocation is about 5000 (2k Spayne Road, 1300 seating, 1700ish Town End), so we're halfway there...
