The FA Cup kicks off (at least for us it does) on Saturday January 7th at 3pm against that most interesting of teams in the third round, Blackburn.

Adult tickets are £20 and if you fancy one in the premium seating areas it will be £25 – OAPs £15, kids £5.

Season ticket holder sale finishes today (Thursday) with member sale from this Friday (16th) and tickets going on general sale (online) from Monday December 19th.

A shame we haven’t at least got a team we don’t usually meet who would bring a few and make an atmosphere, unfortunately Blackburn being about as far away from that scenario as you can get.

Important thing though is being in the hat for the fourth round which will be drawn on Sunday 8th January, following the live match on ITV at around 5.30ish.

Any replay would fall on Wednesday 18th January, a scenario no doubt we are desperate to avoid with the African Nations Cup starting a few days later and what is pretty sure to be an ongoing injury situation.

Tickets can be bought online at www.nufc.co.uk or by calling, where applicable, 08443721892 (if overseas 00448704441892).
