Our fans are queuing down Hamil Road for Citeh tickets... which in itself is odd as there are only 4000 ST holders and they have a limit of 2 each and 11 days to get them in!
We've had similar for the West Ham game - ST holders have until the 19th to reserve their seats (plus an additional), yet there were loads of people queuing up yesterday when they went on sale. we only have about 3k ST holders, and the home areas hold about 8k....I'll get mine in a few days over the phone and save myself the bother!

2500 sold on the first day. Massif!

Managed to sort myself out a couple of spare season tickets from somebody who isn’t going City so I’m going up get mine tomorrow morning.

Get me one!

Really worrying these won’t make general sale which means a couple of thousand day trippers ahead of regulars without a ST.

I would do but I need 4 tickets and only have 2 season tickets. Keep an eye on the wonder of vale Facebook group as I’ve seen a few posts on there from people offering to lend season tickets or buy an extra for somebody that hasn’t got one.

I wouldn’t be too worried tbh. There’s always going be an Initial spike in sales for the first day or two and then it’ll probably calm down a bit. I reckon half the tickets will still be available for general sale!

I’m in the same boat as you on this. For what it’s worth I reckon there’ll be approx 2500-3000 still remaining for general sale as very much doubt every season ticket holder will get a ticket. Personally would have preferred the club did one ticket per season ticket. When hitting general sale think the club should prioritise those with ticket stubs from one of the games before that.

Just hope some of those who magically remembered they are Vale fans for this fixture turn up for our home games...

Might avoid the risk and invest in a ten game ticket tomorrow... il probably have gone to 7 or 8 anyway and I pay a tenner for tuesdays on IFollow so wouldn’t then cost much more to go those two and make up the 10.

The fact us beating Forest Green is a cup upset just shows what a shit show this club has become. No offence to Forest Green intended.

£250,000 for the last remaining league two team is on offer. 6 teams remain, Plymouth have to get through a replay first. Then Vale, Crewe, Newport, Northampton and Carlisle all remain.

Fancy us to nick it! I'm absolutely stunned the club have re-arranged Morecambe for what could easily be the Tuesday we have to play Man City in the replay!

Sod the £250k for going through. City will donate their 45% of the gate money to Vale which will be worth more than that, anyway.

Got my tickets this morning. Didn’t even have to queue at around midday. Should be a good few thousand left for general sale I reckon. Reckon we will take around 6.5k.

Still not answering the bloody phones though!

Do City usually donate their share? Would be nice!

Two City v Vale match tickets for sale. Unused.

£175 each or £300 for both. No offers please. Ta.

ps - right the season of goodwill and all that, so I'll throw in a nice free half and half scarf as well. Used.

Are Man City going to be able to get one of those temporary stands to increase their capacity for this match? Would definitely fill it, just looking at the layout of their stadium I'm not sure where it would go
They’ve given us the maximum allocation, I believe.

They tried to hire Old Trafford but FA rules forbade it.

Man city ticket sales will slow down now as most season ticket holders will have already got them. I'd imagine around 6000 of the 8000 will have been sold by the time they make general sale.

If as looks likely 2000 or less left that Sunday after Cheltenham is going to be chaos! Loads will be queuing from the early morning.

Wonder if the level 1 part of the usual away end is being held back if we do sell out? Assume im in level 3.

Going to be immense atmosphere, recall Villa away in 2006 with nearly 8k Vale fans.

If we do sell out it’s the biggest ever away following at the Etihad. Massive!

Please do keep us updated on how many daytrippers are going to Manchester lads, it’s really interesting to hear about the massiveness.
