Norwich officials have announced ticket prices for the FA Cup fourth round tie against Conference play-off contenders Luton Town later this month.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

Tickets for adults and over 65s will be priced at £10 per person, with under 16s priced at £1 per person for the tie at Carrow Road over the weekend of January 26. The Hatters have been allocated 4,000 tickets. Further sale information will be released once the ties selected for television coverage have been announced.

Luton boss Paul Buckle has labelled the tie a perfect reward for knocking out Championship club Wolves, despite missing out on a potential match-up against one of the top flight’s elite.

“I’m absolutely delighted,” he said. “People talk about Man United, Arsenal, Man City or Chelsea, but it’s a Premier League club and it’s brilliant for us. We’ve had the experience at home against Wolves. Now it will be nice for our fans to go to a Premier League ground, and for our players and our club it will be a great reward for our victory against Wolves. When the fans get behind us, like on Saturday, because we had nothing to lose against a Championship side, it can work wonders. Kenilworth Road was a scary place on Saturday, certainly for Wolves, and we got what we deserved.”

Luton return to the main business of chasing promotion from the Conference when they host Barrow tomorrow. Buckle is determined cup success will not sidetrack their push to return to the Football League after reaching the FA Cup fourth round for the first time in six years. Town are also hot favourites to secure a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Trophy this coming weekend when they welcome rank outsiders Skelmersdale to Bedfordshire. “There’s not a lot we can do about it,” said Buckle. “Unless we go out to play weakened teams and lose games. So if we’re winning in the FA Trophy and winning in the FA Cup, it’s unfair on us that we lose league games. But there’s not a lot we can do about it. I’m trying to create a thirst at the club and at the moment being in all the cups as well as the league is a good place to be - but it comes with the down side of falling behind in the league.”

Luton’s Norwich-bred keeper, Mark Tyler, has echoed his manager’s warning to focus on the league campaign after dumping Wolves out of the FA Cup.

“The FA Cup is nice. It’s a great occasion for the club but our goal in the changing room is to win the league but you take days like those anytime,” said Tyler, who made more than 400 appearances for Peterborough in a 15-year stint at London Road. “The back four were brilliant and the four in front of them as well. We dug in at times but we were hard to break down. I thought it was thoroughly deserved. We were quietly confident because they didn’t have particularly good results over the Christmas and New Year period. We had a game plan and it worked. It was great for the crowd to get a home draw against a big team and we need them behind us because what we are striving to do is move up the league and win promotion.”

  • They'll be waiting a while to have a sensible discussion with me Swiss. Mrs. Timbo has been waiting 21 years so far. Speaking of trolls Feeds United have gone quiet recently. Snoddy's £3m fee is suddenly looking like we stitched them up ...."Wull I'll go t'foot of our stairs. Mother? I say Mother? Them Southern Jessies 'as popped uz weasel..".

  • While Norwich may have set the cost, both clubs in a cup tie have to agree on it - so we (LTFC) are obviously happy with it. To be fair, we wouldn't have budgeted to have reached the 4th round of the FA Cup - so all the prize money etc we've earned so far must be a bonus to us. And who cares about gate receipts and how much we're going to earn - isn't it nice, in the over-priced modern era, that two clubs have decided to put fans first - especially kids, who are the future generation of Canaries and Hatters supporters. A full house should lead to a cracking atmosphere and a great day out!

  • Does this mean that Luton's share of the spoils will be diminished with the gate receipts lower?

  • News ed, multiple postings are often linked with something called "Error 503". Also, postings are often "ethered" but after attempts to resend appear to have failed, they all turn up - or you ger a nice string of e-mails from the EDP rejecting them as "duplicate", even when they may never have appeared! Good to chat to a proper opposing fan & I am glad the 2 clubs agreed that ticket price. It`ll be a grand day out for both sets of fans and bring back memories of the 1959 Cup Run. On the vexed question of slashes, back\slash DOES work\function, forwardslash does not workfunction!

  • That`s very generous pricing, but does B Inners have a valid point about Luton`s income from the match? Must sdmit I was expecting say £20 & concessions. Let`s hope for a real Cup Tie atmosphere and give a warm welcome to (hopefully) 4,000 Luton fans. OTBC.

  • I love it, when the club charges higher prices for the League Cup we're up in arms. Now for the FA Cup they have reduced the price and we're worried about how that affects the opposition!

Endoerse the comments regarding fans friendly chat and comments re some of the idiotic troll postings which Archant should control instead ethering our comments!

  • Ref sensible discussions with opposing fans, there was an outbread of amity `twixt Brum & Naaridge fans a while back, while discussing the loss of respective managers (specially their losing Hoots to us). So it can happen; it`s just the pathetic and often incoherent trolls that need to be discouraged, Archant.

  • Another quirk of the system the EDP uses is that - as you can see from the duplicates below - comments sometimes appear twice if you hit Ctrl + F5 (there's a plus symbol between Ctrl and F5 there, just in case that has vanished too!) while logged in.

  • It seems ridiculous that the only way we can get the ground anywhere near full is to practically give the tickets away. It just goes to show the indifference that modern fans have towards this once great tournament. It's a shame. Warm regards - Ged the Pinkun Legend.

  • Well done the board. I hope this game is a sellout with lots of Dads (and Mums) bringing their youngsters along. Hope its a thrilling game for all the home fans.....taking nothing for granted but there should be a few home goals.

  • Fantastic pricing structure for the game - your club deserves much praise. We'll sell our 4,000 no problem, so surely we're looking at a sell-out? Have been to Carrow Road a few times... can remember one game (c.9596 season, I think) where Bontcho Guentchev scored a penalty and we hung on for dear life to win 1-0 - a rare away win for us in those days. I'll take that again this time round! :-)

  • 9596 ? You're a few thousand years ahead of us there Ed. Are you a Time-Lord? A tenner a ticket should mean that our newly formed footy "firm" the self-styled Chaos Crew should be able to afford the entrance fee out of their paper round money. Oh joy unbounded....
