Sheffield United fans congratulate AFC Fylde as Coasters could pocket HUGE fee from FA Cup clash
Sheffield United have drawn AFC Fylde at Bramall Lane in the FA Cup third round – a tie which could provide a huge cash injection into the non-league club’s coffers.
The Blades will host National League promotion hopefuls AFC Fylde as they enter the competition with the tie set to be played on the weekend of January 4. And Sheffield United fans were quick to congratulate the Coasters on the draw, which will provide the club with a cash injection.
The club have already pocketed £54,000 after winning in the second round and could net £135,000 if they beat the Blades, whilst also receiving 45% of net gate receipts.
