Last updated : 30 January 2007 By The Seasider
Blackpool face the Canaries in a replay at Carrow Road on Tuesday, February 13, with the fifth round ties to be played on the weekend of February 17 and 18.

Blackpool have confirmed there allocation is for 2,300 tickets for the 4th Round FA Cup Replay due to be played on Tuesday 13th February, kick off 7.45pm.

Production of Voucher A will allow season ticket holders to obtain up to two tickets which are priced at £14 adults, £8 Seniors, Students, £5 U-16's.

Remaining tickets will go on open sale on Monday 5th February priced as above.

Getting there: As far as driving is concerned, the M55, M6, A14, A11 is the only route worth considering. Look out for the speed cameras on the A14 (at Kettering and Cambridge they are very sneakily positioned) and bear in mind the A14 between Huntingdon and Cambridge will be very busy.

As far a parking is concerned, it really does depend on how close to the ground you want to be and how much you are prepared to pay.
The official away car park on Lower Clarence Road will charge you £5, a number of offices and clubs close by will charge you £3, the large car park at City Hall costs £3 and there's the multi storey at Riverside, all of these are within 5 mins of the ground.

If you don't want to pay, the roads up Thorpe Road towards Yarmouth lose their residents only signs after a couple of hundred yards and offer pretty safe street parking, although this will leave on the wrong side of the City to get a quick getaway.

Blackpool fans will be located in the Jarrold South Stand at one side of the pitch which was opened in 2004. It is an impressive looking cantilever, single tier, all seated stand, that can house up to 8,000 supporters.

The traditional haunt of away fans for many years was the Clarence Harbour, but this alas is now making way for a housing development. Most fans now seem to be heading instead for the 'Compleat Angler', which is by the river opposite the railway station (around 5-10 minutes walk from the ground)'. This pub seems to have now taken over the mantle of the 'away fans pub'.

Away fans are actively encouraged to use the Compleat Angler, particularly when there is a large away following, but are free to explore if they want.

The only place anywhere near the ground that will turn away visiting fans is Squares on Riverside (and that is based on a house policy rather than any history or likelihood of problems).

Real ale fans have been heartily recommend the Coach and Horses which is about 200 yards from the Compleat Angler (over the bridge and up Thorpe Road) It always has at least 6 ales on including the stuff they brew themselves. It's very busy in there and away are always welcome as long as they don't mind a bit of friendly banter. It proudly boasts no fruit machine, pool table or juke box (it does have sky though).

If you've got time, nip out the back door and turn left, about 50 yards up the road is the Rosary, another fantastic traditional Norwich Real Ale Pub.

The half mile between The Compleat Angler and the Ground is taken over by the New Riverside development and you'll find loads of pubs, restaurants, a cinema, a bowling alley and pricey flats.
