Derby County’s Emirates FA Cup 5th Round tie at home to Premier League giants Manchester United next week has been confirmed as a sell-out.
Phillip Cocu’s side will welcome the Red Devils to Pride Park Stadium on Thursday 5th March (7:45pm kick-off) and the last remaining match tickets for the game were snapped up on Friday morning.
Club officials are encouraging all supporters to make plans for an early arrival in order to savour the unique atmosphere of a special cup clash under the floodlights.
With the game now a complete sell-out, it promises to be an exciting occasion as the Rams take on top-flight opposition for the second time in the competition this season.
As if it wasn’t enough of a mouth-watering game with a place in the Quarter Finals up for grabs, an exciting sub-plot will see Derby captain Wayne Rooney come up against his former club. The 34-year-old played 559 times for the Premier League giants between 2004-2017 and is their all-time leading goal scorer with 253 goals in all competitions.
While match tickets have sold out, there’s some limited availability for Matchday Hospitality starting at £96 per person. Supporters are advised to call 01332 821073 for more information.
