Coventry City can confirm that our allocation of tickets for the Emirates FA Cup away tie against Southampton are now sold-out.
Following huge demand, tickets sold out online within around 25 minutes while tickets sold out in the same morning at the Ticket Office.
It has been confirmed there will be no further tickets available for the fixture for Sky Blues supporters, which City have a full allocation of 4,802 tickets for.
Coventry City Chief Executive Dave Boddy said:
“It’s fantastic news that tickets have sold out so quickly for the game and shows the passion that still exists for the FA Cup.
“The backing of 4,800 Sky Blues supporters at the game will be hugely appreciated by Mark Robins, the players and the Club.”
“We could have easily sold several thousand more, as demand has clearly outstripped supply for this game, and we thank fans for their support.”
“Away tickets are often a heated debate for some supporters.
“I wanted to take this opportunity to make clear that the different Supporters Clubs received a total of less than 250 tickets – around 5% of the allocation - these being directly related to the number of Season Tickets they have.
“A total of 8000 Phase 1 Season Ticket holders were able to buy in the priority window which opened today.
“From next season, we will be looking at rewarding those supporters who attend away games regularly with additional priority. Therefore, we ask that fans make sure they are allocating tickets to specific supporters this season so that this process can be managed in future and those supporters are rewarded for their away attendance.”
