The Covid-19 and injury-hit club takes on the League One side at St James’s Park on Saturday, and there appear to be only a few thousand Level 7 tickets left for the third-round tie, with the lower bowl now sold out. Tickets are priced £11 for adults, and £6 for concessions.
Cambridge have been given an 5,000-ticket allocation for the tie, which must be decided on the day.
Speaking about the tie last month, head coach Eddie Howe said: "The disappointing thing for the FA Cup, for me in this round in particular, is it comes at the end of such a busy schedule.
"We will need a moment just to assess where our squad is in terms of fitness and numbers that we have. But we certainly want to progress and I love the FA Cup, always have done.”
