Port Vale FC have told OVF that tickets are selling fast for the final home game of the season against Northampton Town and supporters are advised to “buy in advance.”
A club spokesperson told OVF that the Lorne Street stand has now completely sold out while three blocks of the Railway Paddock are also sold out.
The club have confirmed that on Wednesday morning, ticket sales were in excess of 200 tickets per hour with over 400 sold in the first two hours of the day. The club are particularly pleased with the sales to younger supporters. To date, over 500 under-9’s tickets have been sold.
As a result, the club ticket office is staying open until 8pm on Thursday in order to cope with the demand.
The Valiants could formally clinch promotion during the game against Northampton and earlier this week, the Supporters Club appealed for fans not to invade the pitch saying: “Port Vale FC have requested no fans enter the pitch at the last game of the season. We can be deducted points by the FA and/or fined money. Also, the players would like to do a lap of honour with their children after the game, if fans are on the pitch, this will not happen, as it is a security / safety risk.”
