Bradford City Set To Sell Full Away Allocation For FA Cup Tie

With just four days until Reading and Bradford meet at the Madejski Stadium for their FA Cup Quarter-Final replay, it looks as if there will be a full south stand and likely a full stadium.

As per the following on Bradford's website they've sold three quarters of the seats allocated and with a time to spare it looks as if the whole stand could be full on Monday.

The club have approximately 1000 tickets still available for Monday night's F.A. Cup quarter final tie with Reading and as such they will be made available on general sale from 9:00am Friday morning.

We understand Reading have sold out their home allocation and whilst we appreciate the distance to Berkshire, the Kick Off time and the fact the game is now on television are all prohibitive factors our manager Phil Parkinson and the players would love to see a full away end packed with claret and amber Bantams fans cheering them on to what could be an historic semi final at Wembley stadium.

To sell more than 4,000 seats for a tie played at 7.45 on Monday night and available on free TV would be a fantastic achievement and a real credit to the Bradford fans who showed their passion during Saturday's original tie.

Fortunately Reading fans have also rallied behind the team and as of late Thursday, there were just a few hundred single seats remaining on sale to home fans.

The atmosphere promises to be electric on Monday night, with both sides fighting hard for that Wembley semi-final against Arsenal. If you've not got a ticket and are on the fence about coming, get yourself down! Oh and maybe learn the words to Sweet Caroline, we've got a feeling it might be played once or twice....
