Arsenal And Chelsea Fans Will Be Furious Over Cup Final Ticket Allocations

Arsenal And Chelsea Fans Will Be Furious Over Cup Final Ticket Allocations

Arsenal and Chelsea have found out how many tickets both clubs will be allocated for the FA Cup Final next month, and we're willing to bet both sets of supporters will be upset with the paltry amounts.

The two London giants will travel across the capital to clash at Wembley on Saturday May 27, with the showpiece fixture set to be broadcast as a 17:15 kick-off.

It's an eagerly-awaited fixture, and the demand for briefs is likely to be pretty high, however, given the FA have allocated both teams just 28,000 tickets each, it looks like quite a lot people will be let down.

Of course, matches like this will always see a sizeable amount of tickets go to sponsors and corporate boxes, but 28,000?! That's 56,000 in total, and Wembley holds approximately 90,000 - so there's more than 30,000 left over?

Surely that can't be right?

Despite the number sounding ridiculously low, it's actually higher than the allocation Arsenal received in the 2014 and 2015 finals, where they were allocated just 26,000 tickets on each occasion.

Last year's final between Manchester United and Crystal Palace saw each team given 28,650 tickets apiece.

As has been the case for a number of years this allocation is lower than for the semi-finals, for which all four sides received around 33,000 - but what do you think of the situation?
