AFC Bournemouth have found an innovative way to keep their fans onside during the summer holidays - by selling tickets in euros.

Tickets for tonight's Capital One Cup first round clash with Portsmouth will be available for fans looking to shift the last of their holiday cash before heading back to the bureau de change. Adults will be able to pay €14, concessions €9 and under-16s €7 on the door at Dean Court for the south coast showdown.

"We know at AFC Bournemouth a lot of our fans will be cutting it fine to make it back from their holidays in time for the game," Liz Finney, AFC Bournemouth general manager, said. "Now they can spend their left over holiday money on watching a great game of football."

Competition sponsor Capital One is behind the scheme.

"We know that there will be a number of AFC Bournemouth fans rushing straight back from holiday for the club's Capital One Cup fixture with Portsmouth," Michael Woodburn, chief marketing Officer at Capital One, added.

"Hopefully this will make their life easier and mean they don't have to miss out on what promises to be an exciting football match."
