BLACK Cats fans queued for tickets for next week’s FA Cup replay with Everton.
They were released at the Stadium of Light ticket office yesterday, for the game which will take place next Tuesday.
Martin O’Neill’s team were backed by almost 6,000 fans at Saturday’s draw at Goodison Park.
The winners of the replay will face Liverpool at Wembley in the semi-finals next month.
SAFC sales operations manager Phil Clarkson said: “We are experiencing a much heavier-than-usual amount of calls, in-person callers and online traffic and we thank supporters in advance for their patience as we deal with the increased demand.”
Supporters who have renewed or bought a new season card for 2012-13 can also buy an additional adult ticket for £10, or an under-16 seat for £5, when purchasing a full-price ticket.
Season card holders have until 5pm on Thursday to purchase their seat before unsold season card seats go on general sale.
