Tomorrow’s game with Cardiff City is selling well, the Saints Ticket Office has announced.

Last week’s 3-1 victory over Preston North End has clearly made Saints fans dig deep into their pockets to see the team play tomorrow afternoon.

14,790 fans turned up last weekend to see Saints score three first half goals, giving Mark Wotte’s men the platform to go on and record an overdue home win at St Mary’s.

17,000 tickets have already been sold in the build-up to the game tomorrow, and a sizeable walk-up is expected for what is another crucial game for the Saints if they are to avoid the drop to League One.

Supporters are therefore advised to leave early and allow plenty of time to buy and/or collect tickets on the day.

  • Articles like this on the official site are a little embarrassing in truth. Is 17,000 really a decent turn-out? Considering where we are in the league and our current situation, I suppose it’s a decent attendance but nothing to shout home about in my opinion.

  • Considering we’ve had attendences of 13,000 and 14,000 on a regular basis… 17,000 is a luxury. Still so many Saints fans are staying away because of Lowe and simply because it’s £26 for an adult to watch Southampton’s last years reserves.

  • It’s true, £26 is very expensive, especially considering the current economic climate. And once again you’re right, Lowe being in control is definitely keeping SOME fans away, but there are a number of reasons why the attendances have been down.
