Cheltenham tickets almost sold out
Box office struggles to cope with 'unprecedented demand'

Boston United are urging fans to buy their tickets for Saturday’s home match with Cheltenham as soon as possible as the ‘biggest match in history' looms ever closer. Only a handful of seats remain on sale as the Pilgrims' box office struggles to cope with the unprecedented demand.

‘I’ve never seen anything like it,’ said chairman Jon Sotnick. ‘The ticket hotline has never been hotter. People have been camping outside the office for days to get seats, and just today I had to ask for the 5,520 complimentary tickets I gave away last week to be returned so we could actually sell them.’

Victory against Cheltenham could see the Pilgrims jump from mid-table obscurity to mid-table obscurity. Cheltenham will also be looking for a victory as they seek to cement their place in the most boring section of League 2. ‘It’s building up to be an exhilarating climax to the season,’ said Sotnick. ‘We’ve never been further from the play-offs.’

Steve Evans told impsTALK: ‘It’s a massive game, the biggest in the history of this football club. The season depends on this game and where we want to be.’
The visitors, for their part, have already sold out their allocation of 1,200 tickets and are urging fans not to travel to York St without a ticket.

‘It’s little wonder tickets for this game are appearing on e-bay at thirteen times their normal selling price,’ Evans said. ‘When you consider we could be up to eleventh by Saturday afternoon, it’s amazing there are any tickets left at all.’
