The club said there was “unprecedented demand” for tickets ahead of this Saturday’s game

Ebbsfleet United’s huge National League South play-off final on Saturday is now sold out.

Daryl McMahon’s side take on Essex outfit Chelmsford City at Stonebridge Road for a place in the top tier of non-league football, after missing out on penalties to local rivals Maidstone United last year.

The club cites “unprecedented demand” as well as a lower capacity compared to last season to the tune of 600 because of ongoing construction work at the ground.

Office staff received hundreds of phone calls and emails from people who asked to reserve as many as seven or eight in some instances, but the club had to impose a one-ticket-per-person policy.

The Fleet kick off their promotion clash with Chelmsford at 3pm on Saturday.
