Coventry beat Bristol Rovers last night, so they will be playing Birmingham City at home, meaning Birmingham will be the away team in their own stadium!
Who decides how many tickets they can have it’s there own ground surely they can dictate to Coventry how many there going to get
Away allocation is 15% in the FA Cup, subject to Safety Group advice.
From the old FFGG about St Andrews......
"The normal allocation is 3,000 tickets, but this can be increased to around 4,500 (15.3%) for cup games (when the whole of the lower tier is allocated). This stand is normally shared with home fans housed on the other side who are separated by plastic netting. Although for most of the 2018/19 season the upper tier of the Gil Merrick Stand has been closed, when it has been opened then this results in home fans being housed above the away support."
Honestly - if we played a cup game, and the Oxford fans had to sit in the away end of the Kasstad......it would probably be a fun experience for an afternoon (if you could get a ticket). No idea what the view or the acoustics are like over there - be interesting to find out!
