Stoke City have promised to subsidise tickets so as to try to encourage fans to take up their allocation of 6,000 tickets for their FA Cup Quarter-Final with Liverpool.
This is the third season in a row that the Potters have made the last eight of the world’s oldest cup competition, following on from playing in last year’s final showpiece.
The club have announced they will waive the 45 per cent they are entitled to from away ticket sales at Anfield so they can offer tickets to their own fans for £20.
The club explained on their official website that they are endeavouring to make top level football as affordable as possible for fans in what are difficult economic times. Chief Executive Tony Scholes also said they were making this offer as a “Thank you” gesture to fans who have followed their club all around Europe (in the Europa League) and to Wembley last season.
