Back to the League - Chelsea sell-out

Back to the League - Chelsea sell-out

After all the hype of FA Cup ticket sales over this last week or so, it's back to the League and the news that the club have sold all the tickets for the visit of the League Champions, Chelsea on Saturday.

Sky Sports have also announced that our home tie against Arsenal is now to be shown live on TV. The match will take place on Sunday 8th May with kick-off at 2.05pm.

Further fixture changes were announced by the League today with the news that the Premier League matches on FA Cup final day will be moved to either an early start on the Saturday or to the following day. Hopefully, we'll be back in the capital on that day, but should the worst happen (and assuming Man United beat their local rivals), we'll be kicking off our match against Man City at Eastlands at 12.45pm on Saturday May 14th.

It's very unusual for the FA Cup final to clash with League fixtures as it usually takes place after the end of the season, but Wembley is hosting the Champions League final on 28th May and the rules state that the pitch cannot be used for two weeks prior to the match.
