|Arsenal Away Leg Sells Out|
Friday, 14th Jan 2011 12:22
Town have sold their entire allocation of 9,000 tickets for the second leg of the Carling Cup semi-final at Arsenal on Tuesday 25th January. The final 1,100 seats at the Emirates went on sale this morning and were quickly snapped up with queues outside the ground and the Portman Road phonelines jammed.
Ticket office manager John Ford told the club site: "The game is a complete sell-out now, with Arsenal selling up at their end and the last 1,000 or so tickets going to our fans in the first hour this morning.
"We actually received 27,701 calls on our hotline number in the first hour, so that shows the demand.
"Our allocation is 8,944 tickets for the game. They have all gone and there are supporters going on corporate packages with the club as well, so there will be over 9,000 Town fans at the Emirates."
The match will be Town’s first ever visit to the Emirates.

Bloody hell lads, 27,701 phone calls as well as the cue outside! Thats is a serious effort. I know most people will say fickle fans coming back now we won and they wont be there at the next home game but who cares, we need as manay people as possible at the emirates to make as much noise as possible.
On another note how good would it be if that arsenal result could inspire a few youngsters to start supporting us, you need a marquee game to gain new fans and that might just have been it!

Like the song
I just hope Fabergas don't come back to haunt us by scoring the winner or getting a hat trick.
Would make my year if we could dump them out of the club, o the excusies they would make

and by the way, I was at Hitghbury when scowie got the winner last time............
and I've been at portman rd to watch stockport in the late 90's and we had less than 9000 in.
Had a season ticket for decades.
Oh yes. Rarely missed a home game through thick, thin, good, bad and recently, ugly.
I'm qualified to have a dig!!
