Great value for us old timers at £5. I see they are using the North Stand and Fratton End. Much better for the live TV broadcast! It would have looked horrible if they had stuck to using the South Stand.

Does anyone know if it's two legs or one? I think it's only the one but not 100% sure.
One leg only.
People who have bought tickets to any of the cup games will get first dibs on tickets to the final should we get there. I suspect there may be a few more tickets sold for the semi as a consequence.

Surprised how many tickets were still free. All tickets are unreserved according to the gent I spoke to on the phone so pick any seat when you turn up. Has this happened in the past? Makes me nervous not having a specific seat as knowing my luck will get stuck right at the back or behind some pillar!

Anyone gone when it's been unreserved seating in the past? Am I getting anxious over nothing?!

I went with my boys to the Scunthorpe game last week.
Sat in the Fratton End, we got there 30mins before kick off and had the pick of the seats.
Just bought Exeter tickets and have gone for North Stand, however as you have said its unreserved seating so if the kids prefer Fratton End we will sit there. We will aim to get there 30-45mins before kick off, I suspect it will be busier this time. Its good fun to watch the team warm up and complete their drills etc.
I think attendance was 5,500 ish.
At £2 a ticket its a great evening.
Looking forward to it.

No need to worry. There will be plenty of seats to choose from. And you will get to try a variety of viewpoints. Enjoy!

Just bought my tickets online, plenty left even in the Fratton End. Of course it is live on Sky, so I suspect many will watch it in their favourite Pub. Nothing like a midweek match at Fratton under the lights, though.

Worth remembering it’s a cheap way of building up loyalty points, even if you decide to watch on TV. One day you may need them.

How do the loyalty points work? Does it increase the odds of getting tickets for the final?
Yes.

You get one loyalty point for every away ticket or home cup ticket you buy. I think you can only get one point per match, so if you buy four for a group, you still only get one point. The tickets are allocated, even within season ticket holder group, first to those with most points (I think it is over the last two years).

I have only come across it for one game this season (Harrogate?) (and it was also running for Lincoln, but there wasn't enough demand for much of an impact and I got my ticket easily). In that case, tickets were first offered to season ticket holders with 9-12 points (I think), and then in groups down from there every few hours.

May come in handy for when we need a point at Burton to clinch the title in May.

Meh. Went to the Brum U21s game in August. Might go to the semi. Might not.

I'm not convinced the points are applied - I've got three, 1 for being a former shareholder and two for tickets I've bought... Despite going to more than 2 games

With Wembley having a two year registration requirement, and I had to reregister last year with Pompey, if we get through then I will have to hope that someone on here has a spare final ticket that I can buy again.
