BBC To Screen Bradford Replay
10 March 2015
By Hob Nob Anyone?
Reading's FA Cup quarter final replay with Bradford City will be shown live on the BBC next Monday. The first game between the two sides, which ended 0-0 on Saturday to force a replay, was shown on BT Sport free of charge. It means both legs of the tie will have been available on free-to-view live TV.
Tickets for the replay went on sale yesterday and all available tickets sold out with 24 hours. It was a surprise that the club didn't use their Royalty point system, but the rate of sale allowed everyone to get tickets - provided they were aware the tickets had been released for general sale so quickly. Season ticket holders have until 5pm tomorrow (Wednesday) to claim their reserved tickets - at which point any remaining tickets will go on general sale. That means that all home tickets will be fully sold out by the end of tomorrow.
Last night Arsenal defeated Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford to book their semi-final place at Wembley. Arsenal will meet the winners of the Reading and Bradford City replay.
