Tickets for next weekend’s FA Cup first round proper tie at Yate Town will go on sale to season ticket holders “early next week.

However, Yeovil Town have confirmed they expect the initial allocation to be sold out to season ticket holders.

On Thursday, Yate confirmed they will have a capacity of 2,000 fans at their Jelf Stadium home (or Lodge Road, if you prefer), with 1,600 tickets going on sale this weekend.

That suggests that Yeovil will receive 400 tickets for away  supporters.

Under rules of the competition, the away side is entitled to a minimum 15% of the capacity, which would be 300 tickets at a capacity of 2,000.

Yate are advertising prices for tickets at:

Adults: £13
Concessions & U18’s: £10

The Yate website suggests that they will be selling tickets on Saturday and Sunday with 1,600 tickets to shift – so, depending on how that goes, there’s a possibility (though far from a guarantee) that Yeovil may be offered extra tickets for away supporters.

Yate also confirmed via Twitter that there will be no segregation for the fixture.

924 fans attended the Bluebells’ fourth qualifying round win over Dover Athletic  on Tuesday night which booked the a first round date with the Glovers.

The record attendance at the ground is 2,000 (which seems too convenient to be true) for a testimonial match against Bristol Rovers in 1990.

The club have said they are “expecting” the tie to be a 3pm kick-off next Saturday but are await confirmation.
