Excited Peterborough United fans formed a large queue at the ABAX Stadium this morning (Friday, December 23) as they tried to claim priceless tickets for the big FA Cup tie at Chelsea.

Supporters who attended the replay against Notts County on Tuesday had their first chance to buy tickets from 9am for the third round tie at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, January 8.

The queues were compounded by a fault in the club’s computer system meaning they were unable to purchase tickets online.
