Newcastle v Cambridge now guaranteed biggest FA Cup Saturday crowd – Cambridge confirm final away fans total
It is Newcastle v Cambridge tomorrow.
The FA Cup third round match that must be decided on the day as no replays in the third or fourth rounds, so extra time and then penalties if necessary, if scores are level at 90 minutes.
Thursday saw Newcastle United confirm that all home tickets are sold out.
Whilst on Friday, Cambridge United have confirmed the exact final total for their travelling supporters.
Cambridge having an allocation of 4,920 tickets and having failed to sell 90 of them by the cut-off point of 12 noon today, will have 4,830 fans making the journey to St James Park.
This guarantees that of the 21 FA Cup matches (see below) to be played on Saturday, Newcastle United will have by far the highest attendance.
