Maidenhead United fans have a last opportunity to buy tickets for Saturday’s FA Cup clash with League 1 leaders Portsmouth this evening (Tuesday).
Those intending to snap up some of the remaining 300 tickets for the first round clash will also get a rare opportunity to see the first team in training for the match.
Tickets will be on general sale at York Road from 5-8pm and the first team will be put through their paces from 7-8pm.
Seated tickets for the tie, which kicks off at 12.30pm on Saturday, have now sold out but general standing tickets are still available. They’re priced at £15 for adults, £10 for concessions and £5 for u16s.
Those who have already bought tickets are also now entitled to buy additional tickets.
The Magpies are one of only 15 clubs to have taken part in the inaugural FA Cup in 1871 and are looking to make it through to the second round for the first time since 1886.
A win over Kenny Jackett’s League 1 high-flyers would rank as one of the greatest giant killings in recent FA Cup history.
Ahead of the tie Magpies first team assistant Sam Lock said: “Let's sell every last ticket and pack the place out to make it as difficult as possible for the opposition"
