NEWPORT County AFC have announced that fans who attend Saturday’s League Two clash with Carlisle United will be given priority when tickets go on sale for the FA Cup third round tie against Leeds United.

County will host the Championship giants over the weekend of January 6.

The club will confirm the date and kick-off time at the start of next week once all live television matches have been confirmed.

Ticket prices will also be confirmed at this time once they have been agreed with Leeds.

There is expected to be a high demand for tickets and the Exiles have decided to reward those who make it to Rodney Parade for Saturday’s league encounter with Carlisle.

A club statement reads: “The club has already received an extensive number of enquiries for tickets and will therefore be implementing the following ticket sales priority: 1 – season ticket holders; 2 – Trust members (prior to 05/12/17); 3 – Carlisle United ticket holders; 4 – general sale.

“Ticket sale dates, methods and times will be announced at the start of next week in line with ticket prices and other match information.

“Supporters who attend this Saturday's match against Carlisle United will be able to purchase tickets prior to general sale (after season ticket holders and Trust members).

“Unfortunately, we will be unable to offer this deal to supporters who use the print at home ticket option due to the possibility of duplication and therefore, we will only be accepting paper tickets. “Please note, paper tickets will need to be presented at the time of purchase and will be retained by the ticket office.

“Supporters will only be able to purchase a ticket for the Leeds United match within the same or lower age category as that of the Carlisle United ticket.

“If you purchase an under-21 ticket for Carlisle you will only be able to purchase an under-21 ticket or younger, not an adult or senior.

“Any supporters who have already purchased a Print at Home Ticket for Carlisle United will be eligible to take advantage of the priority sale and should present their print at home ticket upon purchase. This will be referenced against the sales database.

“Print at home tickets purchased after 1pm on 05/12/17 will not be eligible for this option.”

The ticket office will open this week from 10am to 7pm on Thursday and Friday and 10am to 3pm on Saturday as well as for 30 minutes after full-time.”
