Almost 600 tickets sold already

Hastings United have already sold nearly 600 tickets for their FA Cup third round tie away to Middlesbrough.

Although today’s match at home to Harrow Borough was postponed and tickets were only available for the first time from 1-2pm, there has been a massive response from the local community for the big game on Saturday January 5.

The club has urged, however, that there is no panic for tickets as United can access at least 5,000 if needed. Tickets will go on sale again at the club on Monday from 10am-1pm.

Two supporters’ coaches have also been fully booked and bookings are now being taken for two more. Anybody interested should email Dan Willett at [email protected]

The second round replay at home to Harrogate Town nine days ago sold out within four days of tickets going on general sale and a capacity crowd of 4,028 cheered United to an historic victory on penalties.
