Supporters' club criticises FA ticket allocations

Hull City Official Supporters' Club says it does not believe the FA's ticket allocations for next month's FA Cup final are right.

The club will get the standard 25,000 tickets, the same as Arsenal, for the Wembley fixture, which is 1000 fewer tickets than were sold for the semi-final.

Spokesman Ron Black says he believes many fans who could not afford two trips to London were saving themselves for their side making it to the final and fears there will be some who want to travel but are left disappointed:

Hull City hope to announce ticketing arrangements soon

Hull City say they are hoping to be able to announce details of how they will sell their allocation of 25,000 tickets for next month's FA Cup final by the end of the week.

We understand that representatives of both Hull City and Arsenal will meet the FA tomorrow to discuss the fixture.

Further discussions will take place over the coming days back in Hull and the club is aiming to announce how tickets will be sold by the end of this week or if not, early next week after the bank holiday weekend instead.

The FA announced yesterday that each club would get 25,000 tickets for the May 17 clash.

Fans reacted angrily to the news that they would have fewer seats than at last weeks semi-final and the realisation that the game coincides with the Rugby League Magic Weekend featuring Hull KR versus Hull FC.

With the final whistle set to sound at 7pm, Tigers fans who travel by rail will have to make their way across London to get the 8pm train from Kings Cross.

If the game goes to extra time or penalties it is unlikely any of them will get a train until the next day.
