Ticket details for Nottingham Forest’s Emirates FA Cup third-round tie at Chelsea have now been confirmed.
The Reds travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday 5th January (kick-off 3pm) and the club have received the full allocation of 2,986 reserved seat tickets split between the lower and upper tiers of the Shed Stand.
Tickets for this fixture are priced as follows:
Over 65s: £15
Under 20s: £15
Demand for tickets is expected to be extremely high so in order to ensure they are distributed fairly, priority will be given to away members before any remaining tickets are released to season card holders based on the number of loyalty points accrued during this season.
Supporters who have registered accessible needs with Nottingham Forest and who are receiving the medium rate of care or mobility can claim their tickets either over the phone on 0115 982 4388 or in-person at the ticket office.

How the loyalty points system works
The allocation of tickets available to Nottingham Forest can vary for all away fixtures. With a record number of season card holders, it is always likely that demand will exceed the number tickets that the club receives.
On such occasions, the club believes the supporters who have regularly attended away games throughout this season should be rewarded with access to tickets before others. To make this happen, the club have rewarded all season card holders with one point for every away match that they have attended so far this season - Bristol City, Wigan Athletic, Brentford, Swansea City, Blackburn Rovers, Middlesbrough, Bolton Wanderers, Leeds United, Hull City, Aston Villa and Burton Albion.
Having played 11 away fixtures in the Sky Bet Championship and one in the Carabao Cup so far in the 2018-19 season, the maximum number of loyalty points a season card holder can accrue is 12. Away members will be given priority to buy tickets for the Chelsea fixture ahead of season card holders regardless of the number of loyalty points they have accrued.
