Just been onto official FA site, says allocations will be confirmed later this week after meetings with both clubs.

Certainly hope we get more than 23000 tickets per club other wise it going to be one nightmare trying to get tickets.

Still 44k - what a joke

No doubt the FA will f**k it up again/try and charge to much and end up with a load of empty seats as per Blackburn, either that or price to low and set up a touts paradise

The Football Association has claimed that they have set 'competitive prices' for the FA Cup final.

A plethora of empty seats at both Villa Park and Old Trafford this weekend for the FA Cup semi-finals suggest they were some way out in pricing for a family market, but for the final, chief executive Brian Barwick is confident the FA has got it spot on.

Prices for showpiece events have been a bug-bear of supporters across the country for a number of seasons, and it is a bone of contention Barwick is keen to solve.

The FA has confirmed that tickets will be priced at ?35, ?60, ?80 and ?95. A limited number of tickets will also be made available to Manchester United and Chelsea at ?17.50 for the under 16s.

Barwick said: "It was important to set ticket prices at a sensible and affordable level for the first FA Cup final at the new Wembley.

"We believe these are very competitive prices for what will be a historic match."

So that means 100 seats available at ?35 - the FA are tossers

REMEMBER!!!!

The NEW Wembley has sold alot of 'debenture' or Bronze/sliver + gold membership tickets where that seat is yours regardless of the competition or sporting event. That's for cup finals, play-off finals etc... Not just sport, you also have the first choice option to buy concert tickets!The company I work for holds 4 tickets, so I imagine there will be alot of 'non' Chelsea or Manu fans there!!! Another corporate knees up f**ks it for the 'real' supporters!

As a member with 35 loyalty points and wembley having a giant capacity i thought i was probably going to be able to get a ticket but now it seems like i have no chance. the carling cup final was almost all fans in the stadium which was great but this is just ridiculous

From the FA website

"It is also an occasion to reward the thousands of individuals who give up their time and energy to football, without whom the grassroots game would not function."

What rubbish - you can do that with an England game or how about a nice certificate. FA Cup should be for the fans

the fa is supposed to work for the interests of the national game, not the prawn sandwich brigade...money talks but fans money isn't as important...no wonder the england team is in such a state...these are the same muppets that gave sven ?5m a year to stuff it up and then employ mcclaren to do the same thing...what was that about p*ss up in a brewery

I just figured that 100 thousand was "somewhere in the region" of 90,000

As follows

Each Club is to receive an allocation of around 25,000 tickets. Approximately 4,000 are priced at ?35, 7,700 at ?60, 10,500 at ?80 and around 2,800 at ?95. A half price concession for under 16s is only available on the ?35 tickets.

Did I mention that the FA a bunch of c**ts?

Taken this from cfc net

taken from manu website:

Manchester United will play Chelsea in the final of the FA Cup on 19 May, kick off 3pm.

The Club is to receive an allocation of around 25,000 tickets. Approximately 4,000 are priced at ?35, 7,700 at ?60, 10,500 at ?80 and around 2,800 at ?95. A half price concession for under 16s is only available on the ?35 tickets.

The Club has approximately 65,000 fans (executive and standard) who hold seasonal tickets, including 37,000 in the Automatic Home Cup Ticket Scheme and fans are warned that in the ballot for distribution of tickets, some will be unsuccessful despite meeting all the qualifying criteria for the ballot. To illustrate this, some 25,000 of those with all home cup credits have applied for at least one away game this season. The Club will take every possible step, within the policy set out below, to ensure a fair distribution of a limited allocation.

So those who have been to all must be really p*****d off

I think it would show amazing 'fan-power' if the two biggest clubs in the country could somehow manage to organise a protest on the day, campaining against the FA regarding the allocation of the tickets - and their prices.

Snag 1 - those who would want to protest are unlikely to be there as they won't have a ticket, and Manchester is a long way to come from!!

Snag 2 - The FA couldn't give a f*ck about supporters and it would probably fall on deaf ears!

The only way is to hit them where it hurts - the pocket!

The best form of protest is not to buy ANYTHING from the 'official Wembley' outlets, ie food + refreshments!!
