27 Minutes is what it took yours truely to secure tickets for the biggest match in Charlton's past 5 years, and boy it will be worth it. Tickets went on sale today for the FA Cup Quarter Final replay against Middlesbrough, at The Riverside Stadium, at 10am and at the close of the ticket office at 8pm tonight, only around 1000 tickets remained.
What an amazing response from the fans, one of the biggest away days ever will be happening on April 12th and we can thank the backroom staff at the club for the opportunity. Originally one plane, one train and many coaches would be enough for the initial allocation of 1,500 tickets for the trip, but after much demand 4,800 tickets went on sale and another train and plane were ordered by the club!
Queues at The Valley roped around into the West Stand concourses and telephone queues were huge, it took 90 minutes to even get into the telephone queue and when connected, 27 minutes queuing!
It is going to be a great day so lets Sell Out the match and cheer the boys on to victory!
