Ross Ruberry (28), who has been following the Glens home and away for 16 years, said he was "delighted and shocked" to get his hands on a much sought-after ticket.
"It was actually a mate of mine who texted me to let me know I got one. I wasn't expecting to get one at all," he explained.
"I didn't even know what he was talking about at first, but I'm obviously disappointed for those who didn't get a ticket, especially those who I would be close to.
"It will be very different, but it is definitely going to be a huge boost to myself because lockdown has been a bit challenging with not being able to get out and about and being out of work and things like that."
Fellow Glentoran fanatic Michael Robinson (59) has been supporting the club for 50 years and said this year's final will certainly be a very different experience.
"I really am delighted to get a ticket," he said.
"The cup final day is usually a whole day with an early breakfast and people having their superstitions as to where they meet up to go to the match. We had a period in the Newtownabbey supporters' club where we were sort of arrogant enough to book a year ahead for the Park Avenue to celebrate the cup final.
"It's been a few years since then but it will be a bit surreal.
"I'll just turn up on time and bring the camera because it'll be such an historic event."
Meanwhile, the chairman of the Spirit of 89 Ballymena supporters' club David McCaig (47) was encouraged by his fellow members to take one of the two tickets they received because of the work he carries out each season.
The other ticket was pulled out of the hat by David's four-year-old daughter Martha.
"Each of the supporters' clubs were given two tickets and I was going to raffle both, but members said that I had run the club single-handedly over the last seven years so I should take one and raffle the other," he explained.
"It didn't sit easy with me so I talked to my wife about it and I talked to some of the guys I trust in the club, and they said they had no qualms.
"I slept on it and wrote on the club page explaining the situation and said that if anyone has any qualms, to speak to me and I would discuss it with them."
