Cardiff City and Arsenal have agreed the ticketing allocations for the upcoming FA Cup 4th round tie on 25th January.


In a move that will disappoint some Cardiff City fans, Arsenal have been given the maximum ticketing allocation and will occupy the ENTIRE Grange end for the game. There will be over 4000 Gooners in Ninian Park for the game.


Cardiff City ambassadors will be given first option on tickets and are guaranteed a ticket if they purchase it between Monday and Saturday next week. There will definately be enough tickets for all ambassadors to purchase the one ticket, but only just. Any remaining tickets will be sold on to non-ambassadors.


Another bonus for fans is that club officials have resisted the temptation to raise prices for the game and tickets will be available at the usual matchday prices. Those ambassadors in the Grange End will be able to buy tickets in the Bob Bank terraces or seated areas.


Long queues are not necessary as ambassadors are certain to get a ticket if buying next week. You can buy at the ground, or over the phone. Between Monday 12th and Saturday 17th.
