Bumper Crowd Expected

Another 30,000-plus crowd is expected for today's FA Cup third round clash againt Nottingham Forest. Demand has been high over the last few days and supporters without tickets wishing to attend the match are strongly advised to arrive at the ground at least two hours before kick off to avoid disappointment.

Due to the ticket office having now reached the maximum number of tickets for collection, supporters are now no longer able to pre-book tickets to be collected on matchday. However, tickets are available from the stadium ticket office from 9am or, if convenient, our merchandise stores in Romford, Lakeside, Basildon or Bluewater.

From 1.30pm, tickets will only be available for the Dr Martens Stand upper tier from cash turnstile numbers 16 and 17 (entering through Castle St) or 23 and 24 (entering through Green St).

Supporters that have pre booked tickets for collection today are reminded that tickets must be collected no later then 1.30pm.
