Hull fans' loyalty will be rewarded says club

Hull City say their most loyal fans will be rewarded with tickets for next month's FA Cup Final against Arsenal.

Both clubs were allocated 25,000 tickets for the game, disappointing both sets of fans.

Arsenal have around twice as many season ticket holders as Hull, meaning many regulars will miss out on the club's first chance of silverware in eight years.

Hull say all their regulars will be certain to get a ticket though:

Tigers fans have sympathy with Gunners over ticket allocation

Hull City fans were disappointed with the Football Association's announcement that they and Arsenal would have 25,000 tickets for the FA Cup final at Wembley.

Previous finals have had the same allocation at the 90,000 seater stadium.

The Gunners have over 50,000 season ticket holders and Hull fans say they sympathise with their opponent's struggle to get tickets:

The Tigers face Arsenal on May 17 after beating Sheffield United earlier this month at the national stadium.

There have been calls for more tickets to be made available, with fears the 25,000 on offer may not be enough to satisfy demand.

In a dry run of the final, Arsenal beat Hull 3-0 in the Barclay's Premier League at the weekend.

Extra trains for FA Cup final

Extra trains are to be provided for Hull fans to make their way to Wembley for the FA Cup Final on May 17.

Fans initially faced a rush across the capital to reach the last train which was set to depart an hour after full time. Extra time would have left fans relying on rail travel stranded.

But now Hull Trains and East Coast Rail have both announced they will run extra trains on the day of the Tigers' clash against Arsenal.

Hull Trains have requested a 300-seater service at 9pm, allowing extra time in case of extra time and penalties.

East Coast today announced they are hoping to run additional trains before and after the game.
