Chief Executive Mark Jenkins said: “We have structured our ticket sales in this manner to try to encourage supporters to book their tickets well in advance of the game.
“At the Newport tie in the previous round, the East Stand ticket office was inundated with supporters collecting pre-paid tickets close to kick-off time. This led to long queues and supporters running the risk of not getting into the ground in time for the start of the game.
“We hope that by giving supporters an incentive to either book online or contact the East Stand ticket office early will lessen demand at the ticket office in the run-up to kick-off.”
Season-ticket holders can get the game added to their Stilecard online simply by accessing the drop-down menu under ‘delivery method’ and selecting the ‘load to card’ option.
Non-season-ticket holders are urged to book online and select the ‘print at home’ option, or book early enough to have their tickets posted.
Arsenal have requested the full allocation available to them under competition rules – 15 per cent of capacity – which means the club have granted away supporters the entire Smethwick End. Therefore, Smethwick End season-ticket holders planning to attend this tie will need to relocate.
