Preston North End have released ticket details for their FA Cup fifth round clash with Manchester United at Deepdale.

Normal league ticket prices will apply for the tie which is being played on Monday, February 16, kick-off 7.45pm, with PNE expecting a sell-out crowd.

Ambassadors and season ticket holders’ seats will be held for the initial sale period and supporters who purchased a ticket in advance for Tuesday night’s replay at Sheffield United are guaranteed a seat.

Those ambassadors and season ticket holders who went to Bramall Lane will be entitled to an additional ticket.

The next priority is for fans buying a ticket for Saturday’s League One game with Coventry City.

North End are making 7,000 tickets available for Coventry and those who purchase for that game will be guaranteed a seat for the United match - ticket stubs must be kept.

But fans can only buy a Coventry ticket to start with if they were registered on PNE’s database before January 1 this year.

Supporters who have already bought a Coventry ticket will automatically be included in the 7,000 figure.

Coventry tickets go on sale at 7am on Thursday morning at Deepdale or online at www.mypne.com - there will be no telephone sales for the Coventry or United matches.

Tickets for United go on sale on Monday morning (February 9) at 8am, initially to ambassadors, season ticket holders and the 960 fans who pre-purchased for the Sheffield United replay - those sales will continue on Tuesday.

On Wednesday and Thursday next week, seats go on sale to those who bought a Coventry ticket.

Any unsold ambassador and season ticket seats will be released for sale at 8pm on Thursday.

On Friday morning (February 13) at 9am all unsold tickets go on general sale to those registered on the data base - one per registered supporter.

Corporate hospitality is already sold out.

United supporters will be housed in the Bill Shankly Kop with an allocation of approximately 4,500.

Meanwhile, PNE’s league game against Walsall has been rearranged for Tuesday, February 24 - it was due to be played on February 17 but has been moved because of the United match.
