FC United host Pontefract Collieries in the Emirates FA Cup First Round Qualifying on Tuesday 22nd September with a 7:45pm kick-off at Broadhurst Park.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions the ground will have a 600 capacity and this game is therefore strictly all ticket with no admission on the day without a valid pre-booked ticket. Under new regulations for this season, should the game be level after the 90 minutes it will head straight to penalties.

There will be significant changes to match day arrangements due to the pandemic so please read them carefully, even if you are a regular at Broadhurst Park, when we publish them early next week.

Ticket Q&A: Answers to common questions we’ve had from earlier sales
Q: I don’t know my membership number and I want to buy tickets in the member priority sale.
A: You don’t need your membership number in order to buy. Members need to put their name and either the membership number or the phone number you registered when taking out the membership.
Q: when I put my name on the form it says ‘Member not found... please try again’.
A: Yes it will say that until you also put in either your membership number or phone number. Only when one of those is added to your name will it validate.
Q: How many tickets can I buy on my membership?
A: You can buy for other members if you have their details but it is only one ticket per membership.
Q: I’m not yet a member. Can I join and buy a ticket?
A: Yes you can still join the membership and then buy a ticket. You won’t get your new membership number until cards are sent out but you can buy tickets in the priority sale using your name and the phone number you register when taking out membership
Q: I can’t make it work
A: If you have carefully read the instructions and still can’t buy then please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see if we can help however 90% of queries we receive during the sale of previous tickets was because people hadn’t read the instructions
