Does anyone acutally know the reason why there were a reported 20k empty seats at the Citech v Sheff. Utd. Wembley semi-final? I understand the possible reasons - cost, travel, fatigue etc - but am interested particularly in what category of ticket was not taken up.
As a Man U supporter, I have been lucky enough to get membership tickets for the FA and Europa quarter finals and the Carabao semi final but didn’t get a sniff of either of our Wembley games - United’s allocation probably was taken up by one of our season ticket categories - fair enough. I suspect the unused tickets were from outside the individual club allocations but obviously don’t know. I’m not against using Wembley as the semi-final venue but would like to see a fairer allocation to each club.
As an aside, well done to Sheff. Utd. Combining a semi-final run with being on the verge of automatic promotion is some achievement.
