Ticket details for Aldershot's fourth round Carling Cup match against Manchester United have been released.

The first allocation for the tie on 25 October will go on sale to season ticket holders between 12-14 October.

Three further phases will be held between 15-23 October under strict conditions, with general sales starting from 23 October.

Seating tickets for the game at the EBB Stadium will cost £19 for adults and £15 for concessions.

Terracing will cost £17 for adults and £13 for concessions.

'Unprecedented game'

A number of conditions, including fans having to buy tickets to further games, have been attached to the Carling Cup tickets ahead of general release.

Aldershot's chief executive Peter Duffy said the way the sales were organised would ensure tickets were sold to "genuine or potential supporters of the club".

"This is an unprecedented game in the club's history and is of a magnitude necessitating reflection, planning and consideration of extraordinary issues," he added.

Mr Duffy said he believed the pricing was fair as extra costs would mean the revenue per ticket would generally be less than they would receive from a home league match.

The game has rekindled memories in the town of 1970 when more than 18,000 watched the likes of George Best, Bobby Charlton and Denis Law come from behind to win 3-1.
