The tie of the round, looking forward to that

A really good draw for us. We've had a few *easier* games over the last 3 weeks without meaning to disrespect the opposition we've played so we could really do with a test on a bit of a rugged pitch against capable opposition.

See you all in the Railway! :)

Toughest tie we could get but as already alluded to one which we probably needed, and should relish!

This could be that rare thing, a Cup draw that is excellent news for both teams. From a Fev POV we know we aren't winning the Challenge Cup so the important thing is to get a big gate somewhere along the line and hopefully have a cracking game in the process, and in all honesty I think Wakefield will bring more fans to Fev than say Wigan or St Helens would, even if as expected it's televised - it will be a genuinely interesting game for Wakefield fans to see where you're at and for Fev fans it will be the first competitive local derby for over 10 years.

Honest gut feeling says you'll be too strong for us especially with Reynolds gone as everything went through him but hopefully we'll have a dig and it will be a full-blooded cup tie.

What's the capacity at Fev these days?

I hope we can beat the number of fans we took to York if Fev provide sufficient tickets.

That would make an amazing Atmosphere.

You'd expect this to be a sell out or, very close to one.
Already looking forward to it :thumb:

I think it's listed at just under 7,000. I think being a sell-out might be a little out of reach as the Challenge Cup these days doesn't quite have the cachet it used to do for a lot of fans and we (Fev) might struggle a bit in terms of attendances with the deflation still felt from last season's play-offs/the IMG system as well as the cost-of-living crisis probably set to impact our attendances this year.

But I'm sure plenty will turn out from both clubs and it should be a cracking atmosphere. If we get 4k in the ground the place is usually bouncing, especially if a healthy contingent are from the visiting club, 5k even more so.

We usually segregate to some degree or other when we have well-supported visitors so Wakefield fans can expect to get the two new all-seater stands (the Ward Hygiene stand, which runs parallel to the tryline at the railway end of the stadium, and the smaller stand that sits in the corner at a 90 degree angle to that stand), if Wakefield need more tickets than that I'd imagine you'll get part of the stand that is opposite the main stand.
