Cheltenham's ground seems to have a capacity of 7,000.

I think it will start at 22 priority points....sell out around the 18 mark.

Would be a fantastic opportunity for supporters to voice dissatisfaction with Brady (/et al) with regards to the lies regarding us using the athletics stadium and consequently having two matches switched.

If it's a cup game don't we get 20 - 30% of ground or is that FA cup only ? The stand that holds the normal away allocation (1000) holds up to 2000

Having a quick look, says 1,100 in away stand but this is extended to incorporate part of another stand for cup games/big away attendances. Looking at their forum they didn't sell out to Stoke when they played them a couple of years back so think we'll be looking at closer to 1,800/2,000 seats and (hopefully) a slightly lower points threshold

It's hugely encouraging to see so many desperate for Carabo cup tickets at this stage .

I recall going to Sunderland in 2010 for a third round tie of the league cup and we took about 400 .

I'd be amazed if we took 1,000 to Cheltenham .

Made ourselves heard that night though!

Something like our only away win for the first half of the season...

Would Rush Green meet the EFL ground requirements If so, totally agree.
Of course, they could have let us play the tie at Wembley, after all they seem to be letting all sorts of riff-raff play there these days.

for those of you with short memories jot down the wording from the official site that this switch is as a result of a "once in a generation" sporting event note that they didn't say lifetime - bit like west ham winning something :D

only applicable for those of us over 50 unless u count the inter toto cup for which the trip to metz stil brings back fantastic memories and the longest road trip I have done for a game and come straight back.....

The KUMB News section mentions that Cheltenham may sue us for lost revenue. I wonder if the Stratford boozers can sue the Cheltenham boozers for loss of revenue too ?

Is it the Cheltenham boozers' fault we can't host a home cup tie then?

This will be our first televised match since our 3-1 win over Grimsby in the National League game back in April 2016.


Really makes you realise just how stark the contrast between the money league and everyone else is.
