FA Cup
At the moment, it is assumed that this match will be all-ticket for away fans, and that the numbers of tickets available will be restricted.

To that end, the AFC Bournemouth Exiles Club have secured a number of tickets out of our eventual allocation to all Cherries Fans.

At the moment, final detail of cost, date, or the time of the match have not been finalised. Forest Green Rovers are liaising with local police, their local authority and FA to finalise arrangements.

Here is what their web site says on the matter: "Forest Green Rovers won 5-0 away at Thame United on Saturday in the 4th Qualifying Round of the FA Cup, and they were rewarded with a home tie in the 1st Round Proper against Coca-Cola Football League Division One team AFC Bournemouth.

AFC Bournemouth are currently in 5th place in their division, and will give Rovers a real test at The Lawn.

Due to the fact that we have drawn a Football League club at home, under new rules imposed by the FA this season, we are required to meet no later than Wednesday to set the date of the match, segregation, entry prices etc, with the police, local authority and an FA representative, taking into account from the visiting club their likely support at the tie and any other background information.

The Board of Directors have a regular meeting on Monday night and hopefully the club will be issuing a statement by Tuesday afternoon detailing all matters which the media and supporters will wish to know

As ever, the Exiles Club HAVE secured a number of tickets for what is assumed to be an all-ticket match. So if you would like tickets for this game, please email the Exiles Club outlining your requirements. Please keep in mind that you HAVE to be a member to take advantage of our ticket arrangements for all AFC Bournemouth matches.
