AFCB supporters keen to snap up more Real Madrid tickets

While all the talk in the last few weeks has been about the price of the tickets to see AFCB take on Real Madrid it does not seem to have slowed down the sale of the tickets. As soon as the announcement was made today about a fresh set of 2000 available seats being available for the game, Cherry supporters have been either queueing for tickets, buying online or jumping on the phone lines to get hold of the highly prized tickets.

We have witnessed a lot of excitement in the town over the success of AFC Bournemouth in recent seasons, but the Real Madrid exhibition match looks set to eclipse all of that. We still have several days to go until the big match, yet AFCB supporters are transfixed by the thought of Kaka and Ronaldo showboating on the pitch in what is hoped will be a very memorable game.

I am sure there is a case of wanting to say, "I was there" for this game. The long enduring Cherry fan will know that the match on 3rd August is far more important for the club's future, but it is great to have some excitement and anticipation ahead of some of the world's greatest football stars making an appearance at Dean Court.

I imagine there will be a lot of special memorabilia at the club shop which will be unveiled just before the game on Sunday after its makeover. It is nice to hear that vice chairman Jeff Mostyn and former director Steve Sly will open the newly extended shop.

I wonder how many replica Real Madrid/AFC Bournemouth scarfs will be hastily stacked onto the shelves - you know you want one.
