Video: Mansfield Town v Liverpool sells out as fans wait in the rain
Thousands of Stags fans braved torrential rain to buy tickets for Mansfield Town's FA Cup clash with Liverpool.
The remaining 1,000 tickets sold out this morning and interest was high as fans queued round three sides of Field Mill.
Tickets went quickly leaving thousands of wet Stags fans disappointed.
Hardened supporters had to endure hours of wind and rain to be sure that they got their ticket.
Supporters at the front of the queue set up camp and waited 13 hours before the ticket office opened at 10am.
Dave Williamson, 46, who lives in Holkham Close, Arnold, waited throughout the night and was the first to buy a ticket.
He said:"It feels great to finally get my ticket especially after waiting since 10 o'clock last night.
"It was well worth the wait though because more than half of the people who are queuing not get a ticket.
"The banter in the queue has also been great, we've cracking jokes and people have been nipping of to McDonald's on the tea run but I'm ready to go home because I'm wet through."
The ringing wet queue cheered with relief when the ticket office windows finally opened but were only left to wait a little longer when the credit card system crashed.
This was only a minor glitch as fans held their place in the queue whilst they found the nearest cash machine.
Field Mill will be full to capacity after selling 7,400 tickets with 1,500 of those allocated for travelling Liverpool fans.
Mansfield made the third round draw of the FA Cup after beating Lincoln in the second round reply.
The Stags faithful are hoping for a giant killing or a draw that will see them take on Liverpool in a lucrative reply at Anfield.
Kev Street, 40, lives in Meadow Avenue, Mansfield, and he said his family's loyalties are divided as his son follows Liverpool but they'll sit together during the match.
He added: "This tie is special because it's something that'll never happen again, there are more people queuing here than we get at some of our home games.
"The support that we've shown down here just goes to shows the type of atmosphere the fans will create on match day. It will be amazing."
