Buy them off ticketmaster. Club only selling 1500 tickets so the chance of picking one up on match day are slim. the rest are online. they have the north stand which holds approx. 6800, which they will sell out no doubt. I could see the kop end being used though for a spill over of cliftonville fans.

I'd be surprised if Cliftonville sold as many as 6800 for this game? I was at the last Irish Cup Final they were in against Glentoran and they didn't have as many as that there.

there was 5.5k Cliftonville fans at the 2013 they sold out their allocation iirc, the kop was used with a few restricted areas in it along with some of the south stand which a large portion wasn't fit for use. Attendance figures have been up across the board from then. Coleraine will have a huge crowd out considering how well they are going also. Seems to be a bit more optimism from the reds fans I know this year to, usually theyre resigned to losing in irish cup finals before a ball is kicked. I enjoy the irish cup final, theyre usually a decent atmosphere, One thing I will say though they have made a balls of that stadium. its hideous if youre in the south stand in particular.

What is the problem with the South Stand?  I like it.  Great sightlines and plenty of legroom.  You are close to the pitch and the atmosphere is fantastic.  It is much better than the North Stand.  I don't like the lower tier there.

Reds fans won't ever have to worry about the South Stand as god forbid we are allowed into anything other than the oldest part of the ground with its lack of bars (north).

I think we will sell in the region of 6k. Some amount of busses being organised.

Think the Reds will break the hoodoo this year despite the IFA conspiring against us to make itbas comfortable as possible for Coleraine.

Dont want to spend money at the place anyway. Bars in North Belfast far more comfortable.

I think with the media and vip area split in the middle it kills the atmosphere abit. The view from the north upper is very good although the facilities are dreadful. I was expecting a modern state of the art stadium similar to the Aviva but its dreadful in comparison.

Sadly it still generates a better atmosphere.
 
I haven't been in the new Windsor yet. Is this final on TV?

This final will be on TV. Atmosphere at LR is good sometimes. It is x3 the size so would be more intimidating to play in given numbers alone.
I like Windsor, very small though for international game and too big for IL games. Have been told by ppl that go to NI games that the atmosphere can be flat, just like anywhere else.

I would have to disagree and say that WP is more intimidating to play in than LR, certainly in recent years. It comes down to the atmosphere that is generated. If you have only 4-5k out of 48k making any sort of noise, then the 12k singing and doing the bouncy at Windsor is going to be harder to play in front of.

Hold on a minute just a couple of posts back you have never been in the new WP, and now you are telling people that the atmosphere is better there now that from your barstool watching on the tv box, btw I am starting to wonder if you are even old enough to enter a pub at this stage

Our club game is fixed for a Friday night that weekend. Back up the road early and into the Rock for pints before watching the first ever Plumbridge man to play in the Irish Cup Final (or any level of soccer come to think about it) Cool Beer

The old LR was more intimidating to play at than WP, the new one is certainly not.

Oh no, here comes the obsessed one following me around again this morning. LOL
 
I'll keep this as simple as possible for you:
 
Correct, since Windsor Park has been redeveloped I've never been in it.
 
I used to go to WP to watch Cliftonville games before it was redeveloped. Probably been over 25 times.
 
Correct, I would never ever go to WP to watch Northern Ireland
 
I can gauge from watching on the TV that the NI fans have been like a twelfth (pardon the pun) man for their team in the past few years, and create a much better atmosphere than anything that we do.
 
By the same token, I've never been to watch a home match for Galatasaray or Borussia Dortmund, but I know that theres a good intimidating atmosphere at their games. How? Well from watching them on the TV as well. Pretty simple.
 
Also - as for the bit in bold, I was saying that there is a better atmosphere at the new WP than there is at the new LR for international games in recent years. I wasn't comparing the new WP to the old WP. You've misunderstood that part.

Where have I mentioned the old LR??
 
I'm talking about the atmosphere at the redeveloped Windsor park compared to the Aviva in the past couple of years. I've stated that several times now.
