CUP FEVER HITS TOWN
Chairboys in the Cup
The Wycombe v Wolves tie on Saturday 27th January set a new record attendance of 9,617 at Adams Park.  The previous best attendance of 9,007, set when West Ham visited in the FA Cup in 1995, was blown away as Cup fever hit High Wycombe following The Wanderers historical victory over Grimsby Town in the Third Round. Ticket sales for the Fourth Round tie with Wolves were the busiest since Wycombe moved to Adams Park ten years ago. Wolves sold out their 1,800 allocation within two days of tickets going on sale and local demand forced the Club to make the game ALL-TICKET following insistence from the local Police. Ticket sales had topped 8,000 after less than four days of sales and the last few tickets were snapped up on the Tuesday morning prior to the game. The final attendance figure of 9,617 was just under the normal 10,000 capacity due to segregation and safety requirements.
