THERE will be no Galpharm Stadium screening of the FA Cup-tie against Chelsea.
Town wanted to explore the possibility following a seven-hour sell-out of their 6,184 tickets for Stamford Bridge.
The Football Association, though, have refused permission to show the third-round tie at 3pm on Saturday, January 7, in line with UEFA's latest broadcast rulings.
It's a further disappointment for those thousands of Town fans who have been left without tickets.
And it seems the only chance of seeing John Terry, Frank Lampard and Co at the Galpharm this season will be if Peter Jackson's side can earn a replay!
"We asked the FA for permission but they tell us that because of the updated UEFA rulings on peak-time broadcasting to which they now adhere, it's not possible," said chief executive Andrew Watson.
"It's disappointing because it would have been nice to do something for the fans on that day, but it's now out of our hands."
It is confirmed there is no chance of further tickets from Chelsea because of segregation issues.
