In response to that demand, the club are extending ticket office opening hours from 9am to 7pm today to allow for sales of tickets to both Wembley and tomorrow's clash with Kidderminster – for which over 1,300 tickets have already been sold, with club bosses hopeful of a 5,000 gate.
Tickets are being sold from the blocks nearest the halfway line and there are no restrictions on the number that can be purchased by season ticket holders, who exclusively have until 12noon tomorrow to secure their seats.
From 5pm, the ticket office will reopen for Wembley sales to those fans who have retained their counterfoil from tomorrow's clash with Kidderminster.
The club shop will stay open until 8pm tomorrow, opening again on Sunday from 10-4pm.
Tickets are priced at £30 for adults and £15 for concessions (under-16's). For more information, visit www.gtfc.co.uk.
