Just a tad over 46k there today for the FA Trophy final.

I think our attendance will be something similar.

Out of curiosity, in what size batches are tickets being released?

Wembley have held back 40,000 tickets for swindon fans. They go on sale Friday dinner to swindon and they expect to sell all their allocation by 3pm.  😄

Also Swindon have asked Wembley to take the roof off the away end so as to mirror their own  world class stadium.

Yet another company ripping off honest people and making obscene profits. I hate ticketmaster and, of course, the FA! 

You're right. £1.25 to print my own ticket!

Tell me how you came to this ridiculous conclusion 
Mansfield had a bigger allocation than us from the start, if the clubs weren't involved why would this happen?

Mansfield had a load of choice/blocks open from the outset, we didn't. If the clubs aren't involved why would this be the case?

There are currently 12 blocks open where you can buy 2 tickets together in the Mansfield end, there are 2 in the Vale end. Considering ticket sales are similar, if the clubs aren't involved why would this be the case?

Mansfield fans currently wanting to buy tickets have the choice of numerous price categories, we have absolutely no choice. Considering ticket sales are similar, if the clubs aren't involved why would this be the case?

Ticketmaster are probably waiting instruction from Vale to release more blocks but there's nobody camped out on the car park so no rush.

I've seen a couple of Bristol Rovers fans going to support the Dazzler and they're buying in the Mansfield end because there's cheaper tickets available. It's madness when there's so much empty space.

I could well be wrong, but if I am it's far from a ridiculous conclusion to jump to wouldn't you say?

It's a good job Swindon aren't going - judging by their fans, it would just be a case of seeing who has the least "empty seats" on the day and that side being declared the winner.

But what would happen if the pitch wasn't watered?

Or if the opposition had the end with no roof? 

The list is endless and the stadium would be nowhere near big enough to accommodate the size of their crowd and their heads.

I'm just glad I'm affiliated to a tinpot club where the fans are pigs,the players are not as good as Swindles according to their captain,where their manager takes photos of his players ankles,has our team making nasty challenges on Little Jonny and objects to insults from an ex player who spits constantly and needs to wear a bib.

Official Swindon have sold out and asked Wembley to increase the stadium capacity.

CEO of Swindon says Wembley is Tinpot.

😇

Apparently,they've now claimed that the bar at one end is too low?

I wonder what these companies would do if consumers retaliated in kind?

They are basically charging £1.25 for sending you an email with one or more PDFs attached.

I'm tempted to invoice them £1.25 back for the cost of paper, ink and electricity in printing it....

Maybe the club AREN’T involved and are just letting Ticketmaster make all the decisions.  Mansfield maybe requesting some of the things you’ve listed.  Who knows?

No its all supposition on your part. There is no reason the club would instruct ticketmaster to restrict tickets to Vale fans.

It doesn't take an Einstein sized brain to work out that Wembley Stadium are attempting to restrict the number of sections open for the game. However, they are not Wembley's tickets, they are Vale's. Thousands of supporters will watch from behind the goal when they will have preferred to have viewed from the side and /or higher up in the stands. Where we sit is being dictated by Wembley's profit. They are our tickets!

Wembley must release all of our allocation. Would you accept a ticket in the Bycars because it was unprofitable to open the Railway? You wouldn't because Vale would never make such a decision. We rarely visit our national stadium and it's being spoiled by an organisation who have no interest who is there on 28th May.

104 tickets left in total. Hardly any together now. It's getting stupid. This isn't anything to do with "keeping the fans together". Open up another block or two on the second tier, blocks on the side of the pitch opposite where they've been released now, and open up a block in tier 3 where there are more cat 5s & 6s.
