Alternative car park arrangements for players and officials have been made at sites near to the Marine Travel Arena and in accordance with sports stadium legislation the bars will be closed from 2:30pm for this FA Cup game and therefore no alcohol will be allowed within the stadium on the day.
Merseyside Police and Sefton Council have been consulted with regards to the match arrangements for this high-profile game. The match is all ticket with each club making the appropriate arrangements and announcements shortly for the sale, in advance of the game, of their ticket allocations.
The Mariners have progressed amazingly through to this final qualifying round of the Emirates FA Cup beating Workington, Dunston, Warrington Town and Atherton Collieries in Tuesday’s epic replay in front of an ecstatic 1,099 fans winning with a 120th minute penalty.
Marine Chairman Paul Leary said:
“We have been on a fantastic FA Cup journey both this season and last having now won through 11 out of 12 rounds which I believe is a non-league FA Cup record.
The team and staff are completely united as we embark on what is another fantastic day for Marine for its fans, players, staff and sponsors.
Supporters are now attending in what are huge numbers for Marine and the atmosphere and sheer joy on Tuesday after another late FA Cup winner was magical.
I look forward to the fans of both clubs attending what is a massive game with the prospect of further national success in the world’s greatest football tournament.”
Paul Leary added:
“I look forward to welcoming the players, staff, officials and supporters of Wrexham to the Marine Travel Arena for this final qualifying round Emirates FA Cup game and I have no doubt that it will be another exciting game for both clubs aiming to reach the 1 st round proper.”
