I've heard that the final will be held at the Vic in 19/20 so we should sell out, just.
Just had to grab one more as my daughter suddenly announced she could make it, I'd say there are about 35-40 left, (not including club wembley).
Hi, I'm living in Denmark and a Watford fan, I have lived in London and attended many games. I have a FAN ID and got my ticket. However I have a friend who would like to come with me for the game. Could anyone help me wiht the best way to find an additional ticket for him?
Apart, of course, from the Family Stand.
8 left excluding the £250 club wembley.
Man City end m8. That's probably where he wants to be anyway.
All gone now. (club wembley don't count)
I think abt 155 club wemberely
I don't get this reference, forgive my ignorance!
Good news to sell out (minus ridiculously CW prices)
What I find strange is the amount of people buying tickets not on the day of release for their category.
Who suddenly decides “actually, I think I will buy a ticket”?
Schedules change? People getting paid. Just a couple of reasons why buying on release might not be feasible.
Does anyone know when the FA Cup Final tickets will actually go on sale ?
Just looked. There's ONE ticket left. Block 141 £145 better be quick.
Yes. At the current rate of FA Cup final appearances, it'll be April 2054. To avoid trouble with Ticketmaster you should aim to join the online queue sometime in the 2040s.
I shall be 101 in 2054 oh well third time lucky I guess! will have to get Matron to beam me up a ticket!
Just after the draw is made I believe
Is Dot Cotton doing the draw in the launderette during Eastenders?
Got it. Going to give it to Nigel as he's such a fan. Hopefully we can put on a show for him.
Ok. Fingers crossed for an easy draw. Bet we get bloody Liverpool !
All the information should be on there. Good luck!
Will he want us playing in Europe ?
The one I ordered yesterday is sitting on my kitchen table right now.
When did I upgrade to Watford FC Prime?
Dead M8. Shot by member of OCG at end of series 3.
Mine has arrived!
nah m8 you misheard shes doing her drawers in the launderette during eastenders
I got an email on Thursday from Watford telling me I was now eligible for a cup final ticket. This, as you might imagine, came as a bit of a surprise, given I have only ever bought tickets directly from the club on one occasion in the past (2013 at home to Cardiff). No offence intended, but I'd have assumed that they would be like gold dust?!
We’d have just about sold out the original 28,000 allocation within the initial categories requiring more recent purchases. The FA then sent another couple of thousand tickets and so sales reached the ‘anyone on the database’ level. I don’t think it’s particularly surprising. When your home ground only has capacity for about 17,000 home fans it’s hard to sell nearly double that to people who are truly committed. There will be a lot of day trippers in some of the blocks that came on sale later on.
The capacity of your home ground should not necessarily govern the demand for tickets. However the sale of Cup Final tickets (more than the semi-final) has been a good indicator of what that potential demand is. Surely anyone with any past or present allegiance to Watford would have tried to get tickets to an occasion we haven’t taken part in for 35 years? Given that the tickets didn’t all sell out on the first day they were available to Group C, it seems to me there is little point at the moment to increasing the capacity of Vicarage Road.
I think my point is just with 17,000 home seats available, it's difficult to practically grow our support. It's certainly one factor.
Expand the stadium and lower ticket prices down to 25 and you'll easily fill a new stadium. If it's going to be near on 40 quid for a ticket then we'll struggle IMO
Unless we build a new stadium and charge £75+ per ticket, then I don’t really think an accurate assumption could be made on that.
The ticket price won’t have put many off but it’s certain to have put a small percentage off.
Our fan base is stuck the size it is due to our capacity. No space to grow. Extra 5,000 seats with the right marketing could easily be sold.
Found a cup final ticket near the dugout today. It was in pieces but I’m going to sellotape it together and put it on eBay.
