Saturday 10th March 2001
Filbert Street - kick-off 3pm

Chairboys in the CupAfter the victory at Selhurst Park, ticket demand for the sixth round tie has been huge from Wycombe and Leicester fans and the tie is now SOLD-OUT. This page aims show vital information regarding the matchday arrangements and details of the BEAM-BACK at Adams Park.

Tickets availability - The Wycombe Board met on Friday afternoon 23rd February to decide on how to allocate the 3,200 tickets available for Wycombe fans. As expected tickets were distributed on a 'one for one' basis for all Season Ticket Holders. Tickets went on sale from 9am Monday 26th February and STH had until 5pm Thursday 1st March to claim their ticket. Ticket prices are 20 adults/students and 10 seniors/juniors. League Line Members who are not Season Ticket Holders were also entitled to one ticket per membership.

The Club are keen to point out that Club Directors have not been allocated any additional tickets from the 3,200 available for Wycombe supporters.
Season Ticket sales have been suspended leading up to the Leicester game as a cup ticket cannot be guaranteed for new purchasers. There are currently approximately 2,750 Season Ticket Holders and 350 LeagueLine members.

The final few tickets were sold on Monday morning and the tie is now a complete sell-out after Leicester also sold the last of their allocation by Tuesday afternoon.

Filbert Street
- Wycombe have never played at Filbert Street. The capacity is just over 21,500 and for cup ties the allocation for away fans is increased to 3,200 from the normal 2,000.

Leicester - The City of Leicester is around 100 miles from High Wycombe and is just off junction 21 of the M1. Train services to Leicester from the south are served mainly from London St.Pancras.

'Large Screen' transmission of game at Adams Park -  A 23' x 17' screen will be positioned opposite the Woodlands Stand and tickets are 5 per head (2 for kids). Due to safety reasons the capacity has been set at 4,500. Around 2,000 tickets have been sold in advance and you can pay on the day. The Woodlands bar and hospitality areas will be open and the Club are hoping to have a quantity of matchday programmes available for souvenir hunters. A video of the replay with Wimbledon at Selhurst Park will be shown prior to the Leicester game starting at 12noon. The pictures from Filbert Street will be accompanied by commentary from the SkySports team at the game.

Radio and TV coverage: Unlike previous rounds of the Cup, there will be full matchday commentary on 1170am and SkySports will be showing extended highlights of the match at 6pm on Saturday evening. Match of the Day will also be showing highlights in their Saturday package and that will net The Wanderers another 20,000 plus cheque for the TV rights.

Potential replay: After three replays so far, any potential fourth replay for a place in the semi-finals would take place at Adams Park on Tuesday 13th March - kick-off 7.45pm. Tickets would go on sale on Sunday (11th March) from 9am until 5pm and again on Monday. Check back here for full details in the event of a draw.
