STOKE CITY supporters are being advised to arrive early for the FA Cup fourth round meeting with Manchester City at the Britannia Stadium . . . especially those who need to collect tickets either booked online or over the telephone.
The Club are bracing themselves for snowfall forecast in the lead-up to the clash with the Premier League champions which has a 12.45pm kick-off.
While the pitch itself is fine, an army of people will be clearing areas surrounding the stadium of any snow that does fall over the next 24 hours.
But the message to supporters who are coming to the match is to give themselves plenty of time to get to their seats ahead of the early kick-off.
There are still plenty of tickets remaining for the tie, while a high proportion of those already sold have been booked online or over the telephone.
Therefore, there will be many fans who need to collect their tickets, either from the main Ticket Office up until 10.30am or the Satellite Ticket Office from 10.45am.
Tickets for the match are priced at £20.00 for adults, £10.00 for over-65s and £5.00 for under-17s.
*Supporters should keep in close touch with the Club's Official Website for any updates of information about the FA Cup tie between now and the kick-off.
