The attendance for the Bank Holiday Monday clash with Evesham United looks set to exceed most fans’ expectations with many sections of the ground having already sold out.
The current Hereford FC Commercial Director, George Webb, has been delighted by the take-up of tickets for the match saying, “The demand for tickets has been unbelievable. The supporters have been great. It’s staggering.
“Depending on how many season ticket holders turn up on the day, and being as it’s a Bank Holiday Monday I feel they will be here, we could see the highest gate at Edgar Street since our first match against FC United of Manchester.
“We are certainly looking at a gate in excess of 4,000, and it‘ll be good to see us attract our biggest gate of the season, and maybe the ground almost full.
“We haven’t had too many games here over the last couple of weeks so our supporters are hungry for football – even though we took almost 1,500 to Bishop’s Cleeve. The interest level in the Football Club doesn’t surprise me any more. We’ve got a good side who are playing some attractive football with so many families and children coming back to watch us as it’s value for money.
“We’ve got a younger support group these days, and it’s great to see so many youngsters wearing their Hereford’s shirts with pride whenever I walk across the city centre.
“My advice to supporters is to buy a ticket online straightaway, as I doubt there will be tickets available for sale on the day.”
Hereford FC have confirmed that seating for the match has sold-out, although empty seats will be evident due to Safety Certificate limitations, and there may not be any cash turnstiles on the day due to the sheer demand for tickets.
As at 6pm today the Meadow End terrace, capacity 1,783, was expected to ‘sell-out’ in addition to all seated sections of the stadium.
Tickets will remain available for sale for the Len Weston terrace over the weekend via the club online portal, but again the club are warning there may not be any cash turnstiles for that terrace on the day if the remaining 300 tickets are snapped up over the weekend.
Update: Fri 6pm: An additional 20 E Block Seating tickets have been made available, although these cannot be sold online. They will go on sale at 10am on Monday morning.
Update: Fri 9pm: Meadow End confirmed as sold-out.
Update: Sun 5pm: Less than 100 tickets are left for sale for the home section of the Len Weston terrace.
