Scottish Cup Final v Celtic (Hampden) 19/05/18 15:00

Recommended Posts

I hope we take 8000 fans pump Aberdeen then get 17 to 20000 tickets for the final causing a meltdown and subsequent statement release from the Vanguard Bears/ Green Brigade cunts.

Section I5 of South Stand almost sold out.
Thats good, our group got tickets for I6 on Monday so presume that must be sold out now if they have moved onto I5. (and 14 hopefully)

The girl who sold me my tickets yesterday didn't know how many had been sold but she said sales had been steady.

Don't think there will be a big rush as there will be plenty available.

Aberdeen announced on their twitter yesterday they have sold over 8000 so far and like us no public sale  yet so would expect them to have over 10K

Anyone know how ticket sales are going? Seems there isn't as much buzz about this semi as there was for our earlier trips to Hampden.

Imo must be going poorly as not a word coming out of club yet in last semi club twitter and Flow we’re constantly updating . You would think a game against a non old firm team in the Scottish Cup which has more prestige than the League Cup would bring fans out but looks like as been spoilt this year with Hampden visits it’s not the case . We were well outnumbered in last semi and still won game and going by the sound of things will be same again as Aberdeen tickets going well .Could be wrong though as heard nothing but definitely seems that way with the silence .

Seemingly there hasn't been as much interest in the official buses this time either.
It has all seemed a bit low key, on here as well. It's brilliant the team have done so well but from a FAMILY point of view a 3rd Hampden trip of the season is bloody costly, and with it being on cooncil tele as well I wouldn't blame anyone in tight financial circumstances holding off for a potential final they would also struggle to afford.

We’re going to have between 6-8000 in a stadium that is almost 2/3s empty. No need for the club to bang on about ticket sales. 

Having said that, I don’t quite get the sense of apathy/complacency suggested by one or two. I’ve not put so much thought into a Motherwell game since the playoff at Ibrox.

The semi is the biggest game coming up, everything before that is mere pre-amble and should be used to prepare for that game.  Still want to win the next two though.

Our group were all waiting for the general sale since it won’t be anything like a sell out. Will probably get ours before the game tomorrow if the queue isn’t too bad.

Not sure about that. We're on bus 18 and that was on Tuesday - 2nd day of sale

Totally this. It worries me that I am as excited about this game as I have for any in a while. In fact the league game tonight is a distraction. I will be there tonight but kind of wish we were not playing the Dons so close to the semi final.  

The semi and final of league cup was against the old firm so we went in with little expectation or pressure - that plus as fans we were outnumbered by 3 to 1 in the final and 5 to 1 in the semi final. Always a bonus to play any non old firm team at Hampden. Yes Aberdeen will still outnumber us by about 2 to 1 but there should not be as much of an intimidation factor to put some fans off. 

That plus we have beaten them twice already. They should still be favourites but looking forward to a great day out. Early KO is a pain but still rather have a Saturday than Sunday game. 

We took about 7-8000 for the league cup semi v h**s. This is the Scottish Cup in April - hopefully we can at least match that number

Aberdeen have sold out North and South Stands and updated fans yesterday on Twitter that have sold over 10000 so far . I know everybody who wants a ticket will get 1 but as I am very interested in my team as a season ticket holder , share holder , and well society member would be nice to know how our sales are going . Other people think differently but not asking for much for an update just interested in knowing what kind of numbers we will be taking .

Is it not the case that half the West is yet to open? Aberdeen fans I work with think anything above 12k would exceed expectations.
