Adult tickets will be just £10 with seniors and under 23s priced at £5 with under 19s just £2.

The club will not be opening the upper tiers of the Sir Bobby Robson and Sir Alf Ramsey stands (including disabled areas) and blocks O, P, Q and R of the Co-op stand will also be closed for the match.

Season ticket holders in the closed areas will be given priority on buying a seat elsewhere in the stadium. The Cobbold Stand season ticket holders are unaffected.
