Additional tickets for Everton's FA Cup Fourth Round tie with Brentford on Saturday 5 February have become available after the Bees chose not to take up their full allocation for the fixture.

Everton officials worked alongside their Brentford counterparts to ensure some of the visitors’ unsold seats in the Upper Tier of the Bullens Road Stand could be released to Evertonians. 

A limited number of seats will be available on general sale from 10am tomorrow [Thursday 3 February]. Adult tickets (18-64) will be priced at £15, 65+ at £10 and under-18s at £5 each.

This seems wrong to me as a Season Ticket holder who couldn’t get their own seat in the Upper Bullens? This was caused by Brentford insisting on their full allocation under FA Cup rules so surely they should now have to pay for them?

That was certainly the case for Premier League matches. It might have changed now, but when finances were tight in the Moyes era I can recall fans criticising the club for always underestimating the demand for away tickets when deciding whether to go for full allocations.

The reasoning was simply to avoid having to pay the host club for unsold tickets if they went for the bigger allocation option.

The FA Cup is a 15% allocation to the away club as a starting point. This can then be reduced when safety measures are looked at and/or the away team can’t sell them. 45%/45% split of the gate (up to the semis) to each team the rest into FA Cup pot for winners in each round.

Many clubs don't take or need their full allocation, especailly for night games and lunchtime kick-offs. It's quite normal for the Upper Bullens Visitors to be available for home fans.

In this case, Brentford seem to be at fault for not admitting much sooner they couldn't sell the 6,000 cup allocation. At this late stage, it looks like there will be long queues at the Bullens Road ticket office for home fans to pick up tickets.
