Cheltenham Town have been paired with Premier League giants Manchester City in the fourth round of the FA Cup.
The draw was a bittersweet moment, knowing that one of the biggest occasions in the club's history will go ahead at an empty Jonny-Rocks Stadium.
From a financial perspective it is another major blow in one of the most challenging seasons in our history.
Simply put it's the dream draw, at the worst possible time.
But we still want to try and sell-out the ground, which has a capacity of 7,200, so we are releasing digital tickets for football fans to back us at this difficult time.
For £10 we'll send you on the day of the game:
- a digital version of our exclusive Kevin Cummins' programme
- official teamsheet
- and souvenir ticket
The FA Cup fourth round tie will be televised live on BBC One this Saturday at 5.30pm.
There is also another way to support the club. The 1887 Army have started a crowdfunding effort, raising over £20,000 to date with every penny going directly into the club.
It's a phenomenal effort and we'd like to thank the organisers, and every single football fan that has pledged to the cause.
All your dreams are made – exclusive matchday programme
We will be using our platform ahead of this weekend’s match against Manchester City to join the fight to end child food poverty alongside legendary photographer – and huge City fan – Kevin Cummins.
Kevin has an international reputation as one of the world's leading photographers who has produced some of the most iconic music images of the last 40 years including the likes of David Bowie, Joy Division, New Order, The Stone Roses, Happy Mondays and – of course – Oasis.
His pictures captured key moments in the city’s music scene, helping to define the cultural history of the city and now he can add Cheltenham Town’s not-so-world-renowned matchday programme to his extensive portfolio.
We got in touch with him to ask if he would like to help us create a special edition for the FA Cup fourth round tie at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium and he obliged, donating some of his most iconic images of Liam and Noel Gallagher to the cause.
So we’ve decided to use one of the famous brothers on the front cover to create a unique version to mark one of the biggest occasions in our history. What’s more we are going to split all the profits 50/50 with FareShare, the UK's largest charity fighting hunger and food waste.
