Watford have around 600 tickets remaining for sale ahead of the Hornets’ FA Cup Third Round tie with Manchester City at The Etihad Stadium on Saturday, January 5.

From 9am this morning tickets are going on sale with a one-per-person rule to anyone on the club’s ticketing database.

The Hornets were allocated 6,000 tickets for the clash with Roberto Mancini’s side and season ticket holders quickly snapped up tickets first, followed by regular match buyers.

Tickets now only remain in the Lower Tier of the stand and they’re going on sale to anyone with a booking history with the club.

Watford supporters may only assign one ticket to each Fan ID number.Gianfranco Zola said: “It would be great to sell out the allocation. The interest in this game shows a lot about how important the match is for the supporters.

“I think it will be a fantastic day of football for us because we are playing the champions of England and we go there with nothing to lose. So with a big crowd behind us we will have a great day anyway.”

Supporters can book their seat by phoning the dedicated hotline on 0844 248 5141. Any other queries can be directed to the Watford’s own Ticket Office on 0844 856 1881. Database customers can also purchase online at the club’s website watfordfc.com.

Seats are priced at £15 for adults, £10 for Over-65s and 16 to 21 years, with Under-16s priced at £1.

Great news. Will be a sell-out for us. Hope all those going have the best day ever and an 'orns draw with ultimate victory by 3-1 at The Vic and week or so later. No pipe dream, we can do it.

Been a fan since 1977 ! a season ticket holder for 10 years until my work commitments prevented renewal. Called yesterday and gave fan ID only to be told that I HAD to buy Charlton AND Forest tickets to get a Man City ticket. I explained that I could only get a Charlton ticket because I'm getting married on the 22nd !..... only to be told tough !! Finally managed to speak to someone with sense this morning and get a ticket. NOT SURE their ticket strategy was too clever for this game !! All they are doing are alienating their long term fans ... I fully intend to go to more games when work lets me ... I might even be able to buy a season ticket again at some point ! ... V unhappy with the club on this occasion !

Got tickets this morning and over the moon. Live in Manchester so can't wait to take my kids - although they are yet to see Watford win despite numerous games . Hopefully this duck will be broken at Burnley before the big match.

Appreciate ticket allocation but would be nice to have had more tickets so everyone can go when parts of the ground will be empty.

Windsor, A bit harsh on the club. We were given the biggest allocation that was possible. Watford administered the distribution as fairly as they could, I don’t see how they could have done it any fairer. I only managed to get tickets this morning as I also live in Manchester. I have been to more than 5 away games but bought my tickets on the gate so no record this season for buying through the club. Tough luck on me, but so be it, it’s not the clubs fault. Anyway rang up this morning, only queued for 2 minutes and got my tickets.

Alf.., I agree with the season ticket and 5 game decision completely ! It's the you MUST buy the Forest AND Charlton ticket hurdle I take exception too.

I got mine but those that just missed out should be rightly miffed as the FA cup regulations say that a minimum of 15% capacity should be made available for away teams. 15% of a 48k is 7200 and 6100 is actually only 15% of 40,660

By that token Man City will be using 7340 seats for segregation!!!

Having sold out our allocation so quickly, it would make sense for Man City to quickly make available another couple of thousand or so tickets to WFC. Totally unnecessary to use more seats to segregate fans than the total away contingent.

Agree 100% this is also a low risk game in terms of trouble so i dont see why we cant get a few more tickets i think we could sell another 2000.Luton fans have been jumping on the band wagon saying they sold 10,000 for there playoff final in amnchester which is poor considering they were allowed up to 21,000 .

Well, just shows what total w*n*ers Luton fans are then comparing a play-off final with a 3rd round FA Cup game.

Windsor I totally disagree. The option to provide a day of sales to those who were alao willing to buy a Forest and a Charlton ticket is a great idea to try and boost ticket sales for those league games, potentially generating extra revenue. Whether or not anyone took them up on that offer, who knows but they still went on sale to everyone with a Fan I.D the bext day so I don't understand why you take issue with it. So what if you couldnt make the Forest and Charlton games? That's just your tough luck, get over it! Just meant you had to wait until the next day to buy tickets! Ps this, coming from a non ST holder who tried but failed to get tickets.
