Tickets for Wanderers' game at Cheltenham Town on Saturday 17th February are now only available to purchase on arrival at the LCI Rail Stadium on the day of the game.
The club has sold out its advance allocation of just over 450 tickets in the Hazlewoods Stand, which has a capacity of around 1,100.
Pay on the day sales are available (cash only) but Cheltenham have advised that, due to the possibility of this stand becoming full, away fans should arrive early, bring cash, and that no flags or drums will be permitted.
Meanwhile the car park at the stadium is fully booked and therefore fans should park in the local area, giving consideration to residents, or in the town centre which is a short 15-minute walk away.
Prices are as follows:
OAP (65+): £15
18 and under/full-time student: £7
Pre-booked tickets can be collected from Adams Park before 1pm on Friday, or from Cheltenham's ground from 1.30pm on Saturday.

Using the car? These are the recommended road directions
Avoiding the Handy Cross roundabout due to closures, take the M40 signposted Oxford. At Junction 8 branch left and follow the A40 towards Oxford. At the Headington roundabout, take the 3rd exit (signposted Ring Road, The North). After 3.7 miles, at the Banbury Road roundabout, take the second exit, and at the next roundabout take the third exit (signposted Cheltenham A40). Follow A40 into and through Charlton Kings. At traffic lights where Cirencester Road joins from left, go straight on. At next set of lights, turn right into Hales Rd. This is the B4075 (signposted Prestbury). After 0.5 mile bear right, staying on the B4075 as it becomes Priors Road. Take the next left into Whaddon Road, continue over a mini roundabout, and the ground is on the right hand side.
Mileage from High Wycombe = 67 (average journey time 1 hour 25 minutes)
Suggested car parking area
The Parklands Social Club does allow some parking at £4 per car. If you arrive a couple of hours before kick-off then there is street parking available on streets running off Whaddon Road itself. As noted above, the club car park is full.
Fancy using the train?
There is a regular service from London Paddington – on most services you need to change at Swindon. Average journey time is around 2 hours 20 minutes. The station is over two miles from the Whaddon Road ground. You can catch Bus Service D from the Station Car Park to the Town Centre (Clarence Street). On Saturdays Service D runs every 10 minutes. From the town centre it is a short walk to Whaddon Road down Prestbury Road. There is a direct train back leaving Cheltenham at 19:00 arriving back to Paddington at 21:09.
Facilities for away fans
The Whaddon Road End of the ground was re-developed in 2005 with the creation of the Hazlewoods Stand, which has 1,100 seats. Away fans are placed in this part of the stadium. This stand is covered and the view of the playing area from the Hazlewoods Stand and the facilities inside are good, plus it has good leg room.
Spare time before or after match?
There is a club bar at the ground called the Robins Nest which allows in small numbers of away fans for a £1 admittance fee. There is a Fish & Chip shop called the Royal Fish Bar which is just a two minute walk from the ground on Whaddon Road itself (at the junction with Thames Road). Away from the ground, coming recommended is The Kemble Brewery Inn (CAMRA) on Fairview Street. Alternatively about a 10-minute walk away are “The Sudley Arms” and “The Conservatory” on Prestbury Road. There is also The Parklands Social Club (see above under Car Parking) which is just by the ground. Finally along Hewlett Road (again a 10-minute walk away) can be found The Hewlett Arms and The Fairview.
