SONS Irn Bru Cup semi-final tie against The New Saints (TNS) is just over a month away, with many supporters already making arrangements for the game. We now have news on how to obtain match tickets.

We have agreed with TNS that in advance of the match, Dumbarton fans can physically buy tickets for the semi-final at the YOUR Radio 103FM Stadium, and all being well, we should be able to start the sale this Saturday, 13th Jan.

Prices are 10 for adults and 5 for concessions.

In addition to this, tickets can also be bought online via the TNS website - link is shown in FAQ table below.

There are hospitality packages available from TNS, and these are priced at 20 per person (two course meal) - spaces here are limited - and again these can be purchased online - link is shown in FAQ table below.

TNS will be opening up their ground facilities on the day of the game for Sons fans to enjoy a drink (or two) and there will be food available too.
