Kieran Koszary, the club’s business development manager said: “We have been overwhelmed by the interest in the cup final as, naturally, the excitement builds towards the big day.

“Everyone at the club shares that excitement and the shop has been very busy as a result of tickets going on sale this morning.

“We are investigating linking up with Falkirk Council to have tickets available from other locations throughout the district, and we will also be holding cash only days for the ease and convenience of supporters.”

Tickets are also available online at www.falkirkfc.co.uk.
