1874 NORTHWICH chiefs have confirmed the allocation for their supporters in what is now confirmed as an-ticket FA Vase semi-final first leg at Thatcham Town.

They are expecting demand to outstrip the availability and have introduced priority purchasing.

There are 400 tickets up for grabs for 1874 fans, an amount greater than the hosts are required to provide under FA Vase rules.

The Northwich board have decided to make tickets available on the following basis:

• All existing Silver and Bronze members of the club as at March 1, 2018, will be guaranteed one match ticket (deadline applies)

• All season-ticket holders who are not members will also be guaranteed one match ticket (deadline applies)

•  Any remaining tickets will be on open sale from Monday, March 12, at the club's “away” fixture at Winsford and then at Level One Computers in Northwich until Friday, March 16, limited to two tickets per person.

Priority tickets for members and season-ticket holders will be available for sale up until Monday, March 12, at the following home fixtures:

• Thursday, March 8 v Squires Gate

• Saturday, March 10 v AFC Darwen

A ticket for members and season ticket holders will only be guaranteed if purchased or applied for before Monday, March 12.

For members and season-ticket holders who are not based locally and may not be in a position to buy their ticket on one of the nominated days, contact the club via secretary@1874northwich.com to reserve your ticket.

Any application will receive an acknowledgement and following payment the ticket will be posted first class to ensure it arrives prior to match day.

Tickets cost £6 for adults, £3 concessions (OAP’s) and £1 for children under 16.

Travel arrangements have also been put in place by the club, who are currently looking to run three official supporters' coaches to the away tie.

All will depart from Northwich (behind The Memorial Court) at 9.30am and all will leave Thatcham at 5pm straight after the conclusion of the match.

Tickets for the coaches will be available for sale along with match tickets.

To purchase a coach ticket, a fan must purchase/show a match ticket at the same time.

No supporters will be allowed to travel on the coaches without being in possession of a match ticket.

The coach cost is £20, and £5 for under 11s.

Coach travel reservation is available through all the usual outlets by texting the club on 07975 679624 or email via secretary@1874northwich.com.
