All Remaining Tickets Now Purchased

The last remaining tickets for Blackpool's 1953 FA Cup 60th Anniversary Dinner and 2012/13 Player of the Year Awards have now been sold. 

The event, which takes place at Bloomfield Road on Saturday 4 May, has proved extremely popular with supporters and sponsors as the club prepares to toast a special generation of players.  

Fresh from facing Bolton Wanderers in the final game of the current season, the manager, players and staff of Blackpool Football Club will be in attendance for an evening of reflection and celebration, to mark the 60th anniversary of The Seasiders' 1953 FA Cup success at Wembley.

Having lost out on two previous occasions - 1948 and 1951 - Blackpool finally got their hands on one of English football's most prestigious trophies 60 years ago. Regarded as one of the best FA Cup finals ever to grace the national stadium, it remains the only one to witness a hat-trick from a player (Stan Mortensen) and is considered one of the greatest ever comebacks, as a Stanley Matthews inspired performance helped The Tangerines to a 4-3 win from 3-1 down against Bolton, ironically. 

The night will also see Blackpool's Player of the Year presentation for 2012/13, with voting now open to find your winner.
