Gillingham fans face being outnumbered at home when they play Sheffield Wednesday next month.
The Owls are due to visit Priestfield on Saturday, March 19 and have been given a huge allocation of 3,636 tickets for the fixture - more than the number of Gillingham fans who attended the last match at home.
Sheffield Wednesday have been given the entire Brian Moore Stand - numbering 2,850 seats - along with an additional 774 tickets for the covered Gordon Road Stand. There are 12 additional spaces available for wheelchair users.
Wednesday fans can purchase their tickets from today (Monday).
The Gills have seen a drop in attendance figures this season and will see the upcoming game as a great opportunity to bring in some much-needed revenue. The club's recently released financial figures reveal how tough it's been for the club recently.
There were 3,547 home fans at the last fixture at Priestfield - a goalless draw with Wimbledon - but the visit of Wednesday for the first time in years and the club’s upturn in form is sure to add more on the home gate. Free tickets have also been issued to clubs and schools at some fixtures.
The average home support this season is just below the 4,000 mark. The biggest away following to date has come from Charlton and Ipswich, with both bringing in excess of 2,000 supporters.
Gillingham - who beat Lincoln 2-0 at the weekend - are three points from safety and have a trio of games before the visit of the League 1 giants. The Owls currently occupy the last play-off berth in the division, beating Charlton 2-0 on Saturday.
The Gills haven’t hosted Sheffield Wednesday for some time, not since a 4-1 FA Cup win for the Kent side in January 2003, scorers for Andy Hessenthaler’s side being Marlon King (2), Guy Ipoua and Chris Hope.
