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.

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.

FA Cup final train dash for Hull fans

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.
