Bradford City sell 8,000 Wembley tickets in two hours

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: The Capital One Cup trophy The Capital One Cup trophy

City shifted 8,000 tickets for the Capital One Cup final within two hours of them going on sale.

Director of operations David Baldwin revealed that the club sold around 6,000 online and a further 2,000 by phone between this morning's 9am start and 11am.

But he has also repeated the plea for fans to "stay calm and be patient".

Some supporters have found themselves timed out waiting for orders to go through - which the club say is down to the sheer volume of demand.

He said: "We aren't going to sell out. The system is holding up well but it's the desperation to get 20,25 or 30 tickets in blocks at the same time.

"Be pragmatic about it. People should be happy just to be in the stadium for this amazing occasion.

"Ideally I know they would all like to sit together but when you are trying to get blocks of that many together that is what is causing the delays."

City have been allocated 31,852 tickets for the game against Swansea on Sunday, February 24.

Season ticket holders have a two-week window until 5pm on Wednesday, February 13. After that, the remainder are expected to go on general sale.

The decision to let each season ticket holder 3 tickets is a sham.
I know of some of the egg chasers up the road are securing tickets through friends and some of them have NEVER been to a game at City and just using it as a jolly boys outing.
Shame on them for maybe depriving true fans who may not have a season ticket but attend regular.

As I am on disability, I had to go to the ticket office this morning to buy mine. The website wont recognise me as a diabled fan and I couldn't ring in because they needed to see evidence of my disability ie. DLA letter and my blue badge. I could actually buy 5 @£72 and also receive a free carer ticket. Not one of the six of us will get the freebie, instead, we divided £360 by 6 and each person pays £60. we are in block 141 rows 4 & 5. 3 behind the other 3. so we dont have to shout down the line. I will be picking my tickets up next week.

We are a league two club witha n average gate around 9500, of which 8500 are season ticket holders. How do you expect us to be able to smoothly sell 32000 tickets if everyone goes on at once and wants 20-30 tickets???

As a long standing Season Ticket holder i would have been happy with 2 tickets and a lot of tickets will go to those with only a passing interest in the club with the spares each will obtain. That said however the club apportioned the tickets they are not going to please everyone and the basic premise that loyalty should be rewarded is clearly the right one. Those who have suddenly rediscovered their City gene will no doubt grate on the hardcore but it was ever thus.

Three Wembley tickets per Season Ticket holder is perfect and has been explained re the take up of both the Arsenal and Villa tickets by using a ratio per ticket holder/capacity.

The same ratio has been used once the allocation of Wembley tickets was announced.

I am tiring of the bleating now.

Season Ticket holders are the life blood of the club, many have been for 20+ years and still are, some have been for the last few years in our barren wilderness, their faith and support has now been repaid magnificently whilst at the same time hilighting just what exact catchment and match day attendance we could have.

No point wanting to be there for the new found glory if you weren't there when the muck and bullets were flying.

The regular support have their battle medals (Wembley tickets) whilst the concsientious objectors bicker with the medal owners.

To those who state 'wel lI go to lots of away games but haven't got a season ticket or 50/50, how does that help City? The yget nowt from the away gate.

Support your club and it will support you, as they have done with the cheapest seats in football for 6 seasons and also for the more PT support a chance to still attend but not fork out if unsure if you'll be there all year with another discounted offer of half price attendance for up to 23 games.

Bradford City as a club have got most things about this season spot on, and as a lifelong supporter of over 40 years I think the running of the backroom is in the most capable hands it has ever been.

I bet even if we win the final, there will be people moaning - maybe because they're going to get home late, or because there's a queue for the loos, or a cup of tea is too expensive. I guess it's part of what makes Bradford the place it is!

Swansea have 16,000 STs and if they get 2 each thats their allocation gone.

To be honest I've bought one for a Nottingham Forest fan. In his defence when he lived in Bradford he came to watch games with us, came to away games and we went to Forest away games with him.

To show how much he's into it he's flying over from Germany where he now lives. He is a genuine football fan and in my judgement deserves and will appreciate the place at Wembley.

You can probably make the odd exception in circumstances like that. The point I'm trying to make is that there's been a lot of bickering between the season ticket holders and non season ticket holders. The season ticket holders can't berate the rest and then go out and either sell tickets to line their own pockets or pass them on to people who have no interest in Bradford City.

So away support doesn't count?
It counts as support for the team as a vocal backing only. Your money would be better spent missing a few away games and travelling to VP to give City your cash AND your voice.

I'm not negating the fans who travel to away games nor those who live in the back of beyond but for everyone that 'just' goes to the games local to them we have fans who travel 300+ miles for every home game.

To be honest I've bought one for a Nottingham Forest fan. In his defence when he lived in Bradford he came to watch games with us, came to away games and we went to Forest away games with him. To show how much he's into it he's flying over from Germany where he now lives. He is a genuine football fan and in my judgement deserves and will appreciate the place at Wembley.
You can probably make the odd exception in circumstances like that. The point I'm trying to make is that there's been a lot of bickering between the season ticket holders and non season ticket holders. The season ticket holders can't berate the rest and then go out and either sell tickets to line their own pockets or pass them on to people who have no interest in Bradford City.
We have had a Forest fan and a Blades fan come to the Notts Co, Wigan, Arsenal and Villa games with us, as we need more tickets than we can accommodate them with they have stated, these tickets need to go to City fans as it is a once in a lifetime opportunity that they shouldn't miss. They are going to try come but use the general sale option rather than make us choose a difficult option

I am a season ticket holder and I do believe that the club has made the correct call. Until the last six years though I could not purchase a season ticket as work prevented it, so I do understand a lot of fans out there who are desperate to go. I never stopped supporting the team, I went to every game I could,bought the shirts etc etc. All I would say to fellow season ticket holders is buy what you need, please don't make money at the expense of fellow city fans and please don't take Leeds or scummers fans or from every where else unless for good reason, a close friend who maybe has supported our team with you in the past, not someone who will be watching our beloved team for the first time ever at Wembley. Try and be fair guys after all as bantams we are all part of a special family

If they want to argue that only the season tickets holders should get a ticket, then it should be 1 per ticket holder.
Their fellow season ticket holder friends who they sit with will get their ticket, so they need not worry.
They should embrace new patrons coming to the club instead of pushing them away. Stop treating the club like your "exclusive" club your Pri*ks!

Three Wembley tickets per Season Ticket holder is perfect and has been explained re the take up of both the Arsenal and Villa tickets by using a ratio per ticket holder/capacity.

The same ratio has been used once the allocation of Wembley tickets was announced.

I am tiring of the bleating now.

Season Ticket holders are the life blood of the club, many have been for 20+ years and still are, some have been for the last few years in our barren wilderness, their faith and support has now been repaid magnificently whilst at the same time hilighting just what exact catchment and match day attendance we could have.

No point wanting to be there for the new found glory if you weren't there when the muck and bullets were flying.

The regular support have their battle medals (Wembley tickets) whilst the concsientious objectors bicker with the medal owners.

To those who state 'wel lI go to lots of away games but haven't got a season ticket or 50/50, how does that help City? The yget nowt from the away gate.

Support your club and it will support you, as they have done with the cheapest seats in football for 6 seasons and also for the more PT support a chance to still attend but not fork out if unsure if you'll be there all year with another discounted offer of half price attendance for up to 23 games.

Bradford City as a club have got most things about this season spot on, and as a lifelong supporter of over 40 years I think the running of the backroom is in the most capable hands it has ever been.


20 minutes via the hotline BTW.
So away support doesn't count?
It counts as support for the team as a vocal backing only. Your money would be better spent missing a few away games and travelling to VP to give City your cash AND your voice.

I'm not negating the fans who travel to away games nor those who live in the back of beyond but for everyone that 'just' goes to the games local to them we have fans who travel 300+ miles for every home game.

You can't seriously expect the club to be able to accommodate everyone so they have to accommodate those that make them a viable league club still, that is by making purchases from Bradford City be it a ST, 50/50 shirt from the shop or a programme. Any purchase from opponents is giving them financial support.
Thanks for the advice! Not worth the postage stamp it's written on! LOL
No but my seat number on my ticket for Wembley is, as is the membership number on my season ticket.

Similar to the Notts Co ticket from August, also Burton on that horrible night when a couple of thousand of us turned up.

Bradford City have got this ticketing nigh on perfect, it gives back to those who have given to them.

If those who are now claiming alienation had given two jots in any of the previous 12 years we may not now be in the bottom division, we may not have had to fight relegation from the football league altogether. You didn't appear to care too much during those near 500 games, why should City now care about you?

Three great incentives through this season, VFM season tickets, 50/50 if unsure about commitments or finances through the year and then the steal of a 50/50 for £25. If you took up none of these offers then your moans and whines may as well be cast at the moon.

Macca, very few of this lot would be worthy of being a member of the Fritzel family, don't label em with me in some glorified 'City family' it doesn't exist and if it did I would disown the lot.

WEMBLEY TICKETS ?


The equation is "this" !



If you are an ST holder everythings fine


If you love the club and have supported them for years but for whatever reason - job - finances -etc you aint got a ST - Its ABSOLUTE CHAOS !



This arrangement "will" and already "is" Splitting the fantastic support we have ALL GIVEN to the Club - Not Just now but over many many years.



The arrangements are totally divisive

Shame on them for maybe depriving true fans who may not have a season ticket but attend regular.
Three Wembley tickets per Season Ticket holder is perfect and has been explained re the take up of both the Arsenal and Villa tickets by using a ratio per ticket holder/capacity.

The same ratio has been used once the allocation of Wembley tickets was announced.

I am tiring of the bleating now.

Season Ticket holders are the life blood of the club, many have been for 20+ years and still are, some have been for the last few years in our barren wilderness, their faith and support has now been repaid magnificently whilst at the same time hilighting just what exact catchment and match day attendance we could have.

No point wanting to be there for the new found glory if you weren't there when the muck and bullets were flying.

The regular support have their battle medals (Wembley tickets) whilst the concsientious objectors bicker with the medal owners.

To those who state 'wel lI go to lots of away games but haven't got a season ticket or 50/50, how does that help City? The yget nowt from the away gate.

Support your club and it will support you, as they have done with the cheapest seats in football for 6 seasons and also for the more PT support a chance to still attend but not fork out if unsure if you'll be there all year with another discounted offer of half price attendance for up to 23 games.

Bradford City as a club have got most things about this season spot on, and as a lifelong supporter of over 40 years I think the running of the backroom is in the most capable hands it has ever been.


20 minutes via the hotline BTW.
So away support doesn't count?
It counts as support for the team as a vocal backing only. Your money would be better spent missing a few away games and travelling to VP to give City your cash AND your voice.

I'm not negating the fans who travel to away games nor those who live in the back of beyond but for everyone that 'just' goes to the games local to them we have fans who travel 300+ miles for every home game.

You can't seriously expect the club to be able to accommodate everyone so they have to accommodate those that make them a viable league club still, that is by making purchases from Bradford City be it a ST, 50/50 shirt from the shop or a programme. Any purchase from opponents is giving them financial support.
Thanks for the advice! Not worth the postage stamp it's written on! LOL
No but my seat number on my ticket for Wembley is, as is the membership number on my season ticket.

Similar to the Notts Co ticket from August, also Burton on that horrible night when a couple of thousand of us turned up.

Bradford City have got this ticketing nigh on perfect, it gives back to those who have given to them.

If those who are now claiming alienation had given two jots in any of the previous 12 years we may not now be in the bottom division, we may not have had to fight relegation from the football league altogether. You didn't appear to care too much during those near 500 games, why should City now care about you?

Three great incentives through this season, VFM season tickets, 50/50 if unsure about commitments or finances through the year and then the steal of a 50/50 for £25. If you took up none of these offers then your moans and whines may as well be cast at the moon.

Macca, very few of this lot would be worthy of being a member of the Fritzel family, don't label em with me in some glorified 'City family' it doesn't exist and if it did I would disown the lot.

Serial muppets.

Their fellow season ticket holder friends who they sit with will get their ticket, so they need not worry.
They should embrace new patrons coming to the club instead of pushing them away. Stop treating the club like your "exclusive" club your Pri*ks!

PCBA I didn't mean any offense, I was just pointing out that most of my life I have had to work all Saturdays. This resulted in me only able to attend night matches and the odd Saturday when maybe I had a holiday day to use. I have still supported city for nearly 30 years. I have now though because I changed employ been a full season ticket holder for the last five years,but understand that some because of work will be in the same position I used to be in. I'd rather city fans like that got the chance to go than a weeds fan or dog botherer. I know some are just trying it on but believe me some fans are genuine as like I said I know from experience.

Well said. Having been to more than my fair share of both home and away games this year I feel thoroughly disenchanted with the club I love over this. My heart sank when I heard the news about the number of tickets per season ticket holder. I've more than demonstrated my support for City over the years and I currently stand to miss seeing them in the biggest match for a century. The flexi cards were sold as a good value promotion - they now seem to be being used as a measure as to whether you a real supporter or not. I'm still a match going fan!

Also agree with your comment about he divisive nature of all this. The pompous 'you don't deserve to go to Wembley if you don't have a season ticket' brigade are starting to frustrate me. The club clearly only want them and their select groups of friends at Wembley.

I hope I manage to get a ticket but this farce has taken the gloss off the team's magnificent achievement this year for me at the current time. I want to be there!

ever the optimist says...

I've got 9 tickets and I am glad to say all are going to city fans, all of whine for on reason or another can't make every game. I was quite anal about selecting which mates I was gonna give tickets to ( sad I know ).

It does make me laugh people coming out of the woodwork. I know some people going who literally don't have a clue about football, a women at work is going who left her husband because if his football obsession, going to city, playing on Sundays and watching it on sky who is going. whooping all over Facebook bragging to all and sundry. These people pee me off

A few points:
Clearly not all season ticket holders will take up their 3 allocated tickets
Its hardly likely that masses of L666s and Duffers fans are going to want a ticket for a City match.
The club have stated that people buying more than 3 tickets can do so if they are buying for other season ticket holders as a block booking.
It is unreasonable to expect the website to cope with such an unusual demand for tickets.
Cheers, up the city!

All this talk about the club looking after the loyal supporters is utter rubbish. a....what about the supporters that buy a ticket on the day for every match? b...what about the die hard supporters that scraped together enough money for a 25 year season ticket only to be told it wouldn't be honoured, then to get a kick in the teeth and be told that they are not able to obtain a Wembley ticket in the irst two weeks of sales. DISGUSTING !! city just want the quickest and easiest way of lining their pockets. well done !

Well said. Having been to more than my fair share of both home and away games this year I feel thoroughly disenchanted with the club I love over this. My heart sank when I heard the news about the number of tickets per season ticket holder. I've more than demonstrated my support for City over the years and I currently stand to miss seeing them in the biggest match for a century. The flexi cards were sold as a good value promotion - they now seem to be being used as a measure as to whether you a real supporter or not. I'm still a match going fan!

Also agree with your comment about he divisive nature of all this. The pompous 'you don't deserve to go to Wembley if you don't have a season ticket' brigade are starting to frustrate me. The club clearly only want them and their select groups of friends at Wembley.

I hope I manage to get a ticket but this farce has taken the gloss off the team's magnificent achievement this year for me at the current time. I want to be there!
Your not allowed to get a Wembley ticket,unless your a member of the Cheap Season Ticket Club or even worse the Flexicard Mob! Even those some of these people are Touting tickets to Plastics! Doesn't matter if you follow City's away games,because that doesn't count as being a City Fan! LOL

Well said! Your right but some season ticket holders are just acting like Glorified Ticket Touts! Get a Grip and leave some for other true fans!
Is that the true fans who haven't been to Valley Parade this season? Or is it the true fans who didn't spend £50 on a flexi-card? Or is it the true fans who have appeared on this forum for the first time ever.

The cost of this game will be similar to the cost of a season ticket with travel, ticket, food and drink thrown in. I thought they gave up their season tickets because they were skint?

I'm sure that there are loads of City fans who regularly follow the scores on TV, internet etc and there are some that only go to away games because they moved away from Bradford and have other priorities well guess what; you made your beds maties...now lie in them. Whether you like it or not; the people that bought season tickets and flexi cards this season; the ones who haven't changed their priorities and haven't turned away from supporting the club (and i do mean SUPPORTING) now get to choose who goes to Wembley and who doesn't.

Seriously, you didn't have £50 for a flexi-card? The Club have bent over bakwards for the last five years to make supporting the club at VP affordable to the masses. Don't dare suggest that the club should somehow be looking to help those who have stopped turning up. If you really can't afford a flexi-card then you can't afford a bleedin' ticket for Wembley can you!!

Please remember; Bradford City is for life; not just for Wembley...

It's the other way round actually. The fact that ST's are so cheap and flex-cards even cheaper means that you don't have to be much of a fan to have bought one; following the logic then; if you DIDN'T get either then you don't even qualify as "not much of a fan". #noexcuses

As for bearded clam suggesting that the club should embrace new patrons; FFS; VP is half empty most weeks and at only £20 you can come down anytime and so can anyone else. There are still tickets available for Fleetwood on Saturday; have yu got yours yet?

They should embrace new patrons coming to the club instead of pushing them away. Stop treating the club like your "exclusive" club your Pri*ks!
Most of these people are Hypocrites! Just trying to make a fast buck but of course cheap Season Tickets and Flexicards make you better than everyone else! LOL
It's the other way round actually. The fact that ST's are so cheap and flex-cards even cheaper means that you don't have to be much of a fan to have bought one; following the logic then; if you DIDN'T get either then you don't even qualify as "not much of a fan". #noexcuses

As for bearded clam suggesting that the club should embrace new patrons; FFS; VP is half empty most weeks and at only £20 you can come down anytime and so can anyone else. There are still tickets available for Fleetwood on Saturday; have yu got yours yet?
Pipe down Xenophobe! Have you ever seen an Away game? Probably too POOR! LOL

I do agree tha this linking a fried etc who is also a season ticket holder and to give three tickets to a season ticket holder has backfired,
.

I would say that with 30000 plus tickets or so there was going to be a problem given or average gate is say 10000. The club wanted to make sure their allocation was fully sold and they look to have achieved that.

I do not condone any TRUE fan making a fast buck on these tickets but wherever you are there will be some Delboys!! my views is that a true fan with excess tickets should simply hand them back to the club and let the club sell them

The simple answer is NOT to bid for these tickets

To be honest, whatever decision the club had made, some people would have complained - you only have to look at the web boards daily to know that.

For those who say what about those who go to VP and pay on the day, I hope you all get tickets but, in fairness, there are only normally about 1,000 and some of those are away fans, so there should be more than enough tickets left over for them.

I believe that the club has made the right decision but I do hope that ST holders will do the right thing with their allocation. Personally I am entitled to 12 tickets but have only taken 7 - I don't need any more and have no intention of buying more to sell them. I hope that my spare tickets are available to those who are desperate to see City at Wembley. Good luck.

That wasn't this club, that club was disbanded when they went into admin. The pheonix club have tried to honour the 25 year ticket holders as best they can but are not under any obligation to do so.

Supporters who buy on a match day but haven't taken up either 50/50 offer the club provided are just pure thick and I'm surprised they can find their own front door.

Myself and son bought six tickets between us and there are six City fans going under our tickets, one being my dad who took me to my first match in '72, he now spends most of his time in Egypt but will be back for this and is highly excited by the prospect.

Anyone selling on eBay or for self profit at an inflated price are the real villains in this, not the club and not the season ticket holders.

Anyone who doesn't understand that season ticket holders of any club always get preference for cup games and offers be it a 3rd round FA Cup tie away at a low capacity non-league club or a semi at Old Trafford isn't a knowledgeable football fan and is more than likely one with the loudest voice, heaviest fingers and you are really making me laugh.


As for the rest, I have searched every pocket, under the bed, even in my car boot, I cannot find a single hoot to give. Now shhhhh.

Thee Voice of Reason says...

People who try to make money out of selling on tickets have two things to bear in mind.

1. It is illegal to resell tickets and is against the terms stated on the ticket.

2. All tickets sold have been allocated to season ticket holders who details are with the club. So if a ticket is found on ebay, etc it will take a minute or two to find out who that ticket was allocated too, then expect a word with the law and a ban from Valley Parade.

If tickets were sold on general sale in massive numbers tracing of tickets would not have been as easy, which is why 3 were allocated per season ticket and was probably orders from the FA and football league more than it was from the club.

Hi there to all "2nd class City supporters"

Thats you lot + me who've supported the club all your life -


Helped Save it from going bust in 1966 - 1983 & after the Richmond years -


Possibly nearly lost your life one day in May 1985 -


Attended memorial services -


Helped clear the snow to get matches on over decades -


Sold lottery tickets for £Zero commission under Bob Martin's regime -


Sponsored the club in previous years



Supported the bantams all over the country since the 50s or earlier ....................
.BUT - BUT - BUT?? "Don't" actually hold a season ticket this year??? Shock Horror!



Apparently we're NOT "REAL" Supporters after all ??




NO after 48 years of following City - "I" Didn't realise it either til now ?



The fact that many people "Still" go to every home game with other friends and family and pay the "full whack" giving the club a hell of a lot more money in a season than the "Bag-a- Bargain - Pound shop Brigade" doesn't count any more -



So now you know boys and girls - thats what your years of "support" mean to our beloved club




So for we "2nd Class Untouchables" who actually are still bothering to find out how we could possibly "still" get a ticket for the Final - Ive found a sure-fire way to "Contact the DEAD".......



..........Phone the Bradford City AFC "CAPITAL CUP "HELPLINE" !



If "ANYBODY" EVER ANSWERS - Please let me know ?? + 10p a Minute for the pleasure of waiting - Fabulous Value - NOT!



Hey ho - The trials of life ! - Am just off to check e-bay now to see if any Huddersfield Fans who are pals with a Bantams "Flex-card" holder can help me out ? Cheerio ! c-:=

Hi Gents

Interesting views from all type's of fans.
Which in a way are all valid.
There is always going to be for and against. Someone is always going to be happy and some sad.That's just the way the cookie crumbles.

I am not a Season Ticket holder myself, But i can and accept that Season and FlexiCards get First choice,And thats the way it has to be,like it or not.

What i dont like is Fans touting other fans,,,,(Bradford) and how can fans of Bradford give other fans from Hudd/Leeds tickets ?? are they really City fans ??

And where is the problem of some on here when Ticket holders take there wifes and family to Wembley, This is a Once in a lifetime Game ...Simple

But at the end of all this,,

Come Wembley,,(hopefully me too)
We will all sit in our seats Together and it wont make a diffrence if you are a 1 class or 2 class fan, because with the atmosphere we will all (hopefully me) be cheering for OUR BCFC.

Yours

Gentlemanbob

Are you suggesting that you go to every home game and don't have a season ticket? Are you suggesting that the club needs a specific policy to cater for idiots?
I am a neutral and am just commenting on the clubs method of upsetting decent supporters. And yes there are people that 'pay on the day' and watch most, if not all the games due to their financial circumsances or location.
Why would anyone pay £20 for every home game rather than by a ST or flexi? You are making no sense.

The allocation of 3per ST holder is utterly Bonkers -



These will be sold on the black market and at profit to "Day trippers" and people who just wanna "catch the wave" of the current success.



Many "dyed in the wool - TRUE supporters" who love the club will NOT be there to witness the biggest "one-off day" since 1911 and it will "P*** them off permanently" knowng that - their place has been taken by sundry "day trip out" supporters on a one day "Jolly" !



I hope I'm wrong but this matter is dividing the magnificent support which has seen us "see off" 3 Prem clubs and whch if the ticket matter had been handled differently I am sure would have stayed around as "regulars" for many years to come -



Left "as is" I'm not so sure that may be the case if theres a wholeload of people who "deserve to and should be" there - who "arent".



I hope Im wrong and that everyone who truly loves the club "IS" at Wembley to see City win



Come on City - C T I D
Well said! Your right but some season ticket holders are just acting like Glorified Ticket Touts! Get a Grip and leave some for other true fans!
Is that the true fans who haven't been to Valley Parade this season? Or is it the true fans who didn't spend £50 on a flexi-card? Or is it the true fans who have appeared on this forum for the first time ever.

The cost of this game will be similar to the cost of a season ticket with travel, ticket, food and drink thrown in. I thought they gave up their season tickets because they were skint?

I'm sure that there are loads of City fans who regularly follow the scores on TV, internet etc and there are some that only go to away games because they moved away from Bradford and have other priorities well guess what; you made your beds maties...now lie in them. Whether you like it or not; the people that bought season tickets and flexi cards this season; the ones who haven't changed their priorities and haven't turned away from supporting the club (and i do mean SUPPORTING) now get to choose who goes to Wembley and who doesn't.

It must be 19,000 Rambo. I've bought 16,500 myself and will shortly be setting up my own website to sell them on to Birky-Neil at twice the face value but my website won't make him wait for 11 hours.
That's pretty good for you.
It made me laugh!
It's funny really. There are people above suggesting that the club are causing a "split"amongst fans; however, for the first time ever; all of the regular posters on here are 100% together...
I appreciate that there may be people moaning who are doing so genuinely but I think there are some whose only purpose for writing is trying to cause that split at a time when we should be rejoicing at our team's massive achievements.

Which other major event would cater for people who have had no connection for years or moved away or may have some connection in the past etc etc?

Swansea's allocation looks as if it will go to only season ticket holders and others will not get a look in, however genuine in their support. We have, at the most, 1,000 fans who pay at the gate and there should be far more than that available on general sale given that, like me, there will be ST holders who do not take up their full entitlement. I want as many genuine City fans at Wembley as possible and would hope that ST holders behave responsibly - I have no time for anyone gloating about selling extra tickets to Leeds fans. Why would you want Leeds fans and not City fans at Wembley?

Thats because the regular posters on here always comment about City and have their best intentions at heart, we don't agree with each other but we all want the same thing.

Those who appear to be upset appear to have crawled out the woodwork never seen on here before laying claim to Wembley tickets and being hard done too.

Three Wembley tickets per Season Ticket holder is perfect and has been explained re the take up of both the Arsenal and Villa tickets by using a ratio per ticket holder/capacity. The same ratio has been used once the allocation of Wembley tickets was announced. I am tiring of the bleating now. Season Ticket holders are the life blood of the club, many have been for 20+ years and still are, some have been for the last few years in our barren wilderness, their faith and support has now been repaid magnificently whilst at the same time hilighting just what exact catchment and match day attendance we could have. No point wanting to be there for the new found glory if you weren't there when the muck and bullets were flying. The regular support have their battle medals (Wembley tickets) whilst the concsientious objectors bicker with the medal owners. To those who state 'wel lI go to lots of away games but haven't got a season ticket or 50/50, how does that help City? The yget nowt from the away gate. Support your club and it will support you, as they have done with the cheapest seats in football for 6 seasons and also for the more PT support a chance to still attend but not fork out if unsure if you'll be there all year with another discounted offer of half price attendance for up to 23 games. Bradford City as a club have got most things about this season spot on, and as a lifelong supporter of over 40 years I think the running of the backroom is in the most capable hands it has ever been. 20 minutes via the hotline BTW.
Spot on......

We'd all love to attend big important games every week without having to endure the dross etc, however its the latter that makes these days, games, wins etc so special.

As a long time season ticket holder committed to watching the side each and every week we have had a very poor return in the past 10 years.

Ask yourself where you've been whilst others have followed through thick and thin.

The other question is will you be buying a season ticket next year (i've already got mine by the way), just in case we have this well-earned privelige again?

I guess its put your money where your mouth is.......

To any people who are unaware as to how and why the amount of tickets per ST/FLexi holder came about.

The club worked out on a ratio basis afet analysing the uptake of previous cup matches, this worked out at 1.8 PP out of a capacity crowd of 23.5k

As we have an allocation of just under 32k the club applied the same ratio to availability and are distributing on that basis. Therefore the amount of tickets that can be bought under those standards is 3 per ST/Flexi. This not only rewards loyalty but leaves a good chunk to go on general sale.

As we have never breached 20k for a league game even when giving tickets away or charging £1 entry I cannot see how any one person can complain they haven't or cannot get a ticket.

If you are loyal and go regularly you will get a ticket, if you are patient and prepared to be up in time to get in the online queue(registration probbaly needed) or call the hotline on the day of general sale I am sure you will get a ticket.

Finally, if you see any tickets offered for sale anywhere but the club, and a few legal ticketmaster type sites, report this to the club as this will be an illegal sale and those tickets may have to be blocked and put back up for resale, hopefully costing those trying to make a buck out of it and making tickets available for those who for whatever reason are currently unable to purchase one or think they may miss out.

And this is the fairest and most helpful I will be on this subject, patience and understanding required by those who for whatever reason do not have access to tickets yet.

It isn't a BCAFC fault or a ST holder fault or your fault really, it is an unforseen situation of a positive kind which everyone would like to be part of but not all can be.

Acceptance and patience is needed.

So what if you've followed the club for years done this that and the other. I moved away so can't go anymore blah blah blah. I make a 530 mile round trip to see city play. I moved away and still got a season ticket cos they are my club and I wouldn't give it up for the world. I think they have got the tickets bob on with this one. Paying the fans back for some of the dross we've had to endure over the last 12 years. So if you've not got a season ticket it's tough! They are cheap enough and the club has worked every season to keep the prices realistic for the majority of people. However as for people buying in bulk then selling onto dirty Leeds fans, you should be ashamed of yourselves! Unfortunately the final will be my last game I get to see this season as I deploy to Afghanistan shortly after! Roll on Wembley CTID

Well said! Your right but some season ticket holders are just acting like Glorified Ticket Touts! Get a Grip and leave some for other true fans!
Is that the true fans who haven't been to Valley Parade this season? Or is it the true fans who didn't spend £50 on a flexi-card? Or is it the true fans who have appeared on this forum for the first time ever.

The cost of this game will be similar to the cost of a season ticket with travel, ticket, food and drink thrown in. I thought they gave up their season tickets because they were skint?

I'm sure that there are loads of City fans who regularly follow the scores on TV, internet etc and there are some that only go to away games because they moved away from Bradford and have other priorities well guess what; you made your beds maties...now lie in them. Whether you like it or not; the people that bought season tickets and flexi cards this season; the ones who haven't changed their priorities and haven't turned away from supporting the club (and i do mean SUPPORTING) now get to choose who goes to Wembley and who doesn't.

Seriously, you didn't have £50 for a flexi-card? The Club have bent over bakwards for the last five years to make supporting the club at VP affordable to the masses. Don't dare suggest that the club should somehow be looking to help those who have stopped turning up. If you really can't afford a flexi-card then you can't afford a bleedin' ticket for Wembley can you!!

Please remember; Bradford City is for life; not just for Wembley...
Old and Proud - where are you coming from. I also own a 25 year season ticket and the club allow you to have a season ticket in a SUITE, i.e. Bantams Bar or McCall/Hendrie suites for the massive amount of £120 which is only the cost of an upgrade for those not having a 25 year ticket. You therefore basically are still getting a free season ticket from which you would have now been holding 3 Wembley tickets. Additionally if you paid for your 25 year ticket with a credit card you will have received all of the money back, many did this, and would easily have been able to afford the upgrade costs being charged to you now.

I also own a 25 year season ticket and the club allow you to have a season ticket in a SUITE, i.e. Bantams Bar or McCall/Hendrie suites for the massive amount of £120 which is only the cost of an upgrade for those not having a 25 year ticket. You therefore basically are still getting a free season ticket from which you would have now been holding 3 Wembley tickets. Additionally if you paid for your 25 year ticket with a credit card you will have received all of the money back, many did this, and would easily have been able to afford the upgrade costs being charged to you now. city down south

Well said! Your right but some season ticket holders are just acting like Glorified Ticket Touts! Get a Grip and leave some for other true fans!
Is that the true fans who haven't been to Valley Parade this season? Or is it the true fans who didn't spend £50 on a flexi-card? Or is it the true fans who have appeared on this forum for the first time ever.

The cost of this game will be similar to the cost of a season ticket with travel, ticket, food and drink thrown in. I thought they gave up their season tickets because they were skint?

I'm sure that there are loads of City fans who regularly follow the scores on TV, internet etc and there are some that only go to away games because they moved away from Bradford and have other priorities well guess what; you made your beds maties...now lie in them. Whether you like it or not; the people that bought season tickets and flexi cards this season; the ones who haven't changed their priorities and haven't turned away from supporting the club (and i do mean SUPPORTING) now get to choose who goes to Wembley and who doesn't.
Well your talking to a fan who has a Ticket for Wembley! SHHHHHH!!!!!!
It's You are or You're...not your.
Aww Bless! Resorting to a spelling mistake when he has lost the argument! SHHHHHHHH!!!! I'm on my way to Wembley! xxxxxx

I am so pleased that City have got to Wembley. I used to be a season ticket holder but found it hard to attend games and stopped renewing some years ago, I have been to a few games over the past few seasons and have been lucky enough to get to around 7 or 8 league home games and added to that the Cap 1 Burton, Arsenal and Villa home and away games however as I don't have a season ticket I will have to wait until the general sale. It was my choice not to renew my season ticket and my choice to pay 20 pounds to attend each game. Its right that the fans who have stuck by the club get the first allocation and good luck to them I applaud all those that stuck with the team through the dark times under Nicky Law, Robson etc. It would have been nice to have a second wave of sales for those of us that attended the Burton game for example rather than being lumped in with all the people wanting a day out but thats life. What a great set of games we have had in this competition and I will always remember them and I still hope to be at Wembley come the 24th. I will be patient and hopefully get my single ticket. Lets just get behind the team and hopefully look forward to the Final (I'm praying I will be lucky enough to be there).

This is my first post, so here goes. There seems to be a similarity from the above comments left here and with comments left on the Swansea local paper.

That is people who are not season ticket holders. moaning about the policy of both clubs giving season ticket holders first chance.

Those who are season ticket holders, and already have tickets gloating about it and in some cases throwing insults.

Is it right that season ticket holders get first chance? Of course it is.

Is it wrong that insults are throw about towards potential future fans and potential season ticket holders. Of course it is.

So lets all calm down there will tickets available to non season ticket holders.We could not even sell out the semi final home leg against Villa

My friends and family allocation was 9 tickets, i bought seven, so that is 2 back in the pot. Of the seven tickets 6 are what i would call full time fans. The seventh ticket was for my wife. I make no apology, she has for over 35 years putt up with me been a city fan with all that entails. For example, Aldershot home match clashes with a wedding invite. Solution, i go to the match then the reception in my city shirt of course

One final comment. If any season ticket holder cashes in and sells the tickets on to fund their Wembley trip. They should be named and shamed and band from Bradford City for life

.With ebay tickets available before general sale this could be Wembley members who are guaranteed a ticket to every Wembley event. Membership cost thousands

If i have to read another woe is me tale about how true a city fan they are but dont really go and dont have a season ticket, i am gonna scream!!
50 quid would have secured your seat and half price match tickets for the season, or 25 quid at one point. Surely anybody at all that follows city would have been tempted by that offer.
Quite rightly loyalty is being rewarded esp when there has been times when nothing to cheer but we have renewed our tickets none the less.
I think its brilliant if disillusioned supporters come back and genuinely support again. Unfortunately the difference in attendance between the aston villa and oxford league game says it all.
Get a grip moaners, we are entitled to do what we want with our allocation and i do not know of anybody who intends to sell to make a profit.
Ps There is a landlady in lidget green hoping to buy 55 tickets for her avid fans so youd better be quick when they go on general sale.

Every st holder at my work is trying to sell the extra tickets they have got for more than the face value and I've been slated because I'd rather wait till they go on general sale. So st holders will slate people like me going to wembley but are quite happy to make a fast buck on the back of the beloved club don't understand really I'm just glad both the bulls and city seam to be putting there problems behind them and Bradford is in the news for better reasons than normal good luck bcfc hope to see you there !!!!

i agree to an extent. We have a man utd fan (Bradoford is his hometown and 2nd team) whose paid full whack 20 quid to over a dozen league games (more than the season ticket cost) this season, has attended the cup games, including Villa away. Does he deserve it over someone who claims to be a city fan but has barely seen them in years?
I did say a close friend who has supported our club so yes he is deserving. Just don't like some of the rubbing peoples noses in it stuff. Some are genuine as we do have to work
I agree people have to work but thats what the flexi card was for.

We've had alot of Tuesday games yet strangely the crowds go down. Where are those who claim to work on Saturdays then?

Also there were approx a thousand tickets left against Villa in the home end. That was a Tuesday as well. Where were all those, some of whom are probably complaining now?

31,000 plus want to go to wembley.

Under 11,000 (approx attend each week.

We didn't sell out the North west corner for a capital cup semi-final (less than 25,000).

The maths don't add up for at least some of those making excuses.

Just 'cos you had a season ticket in the premiership and maybe attended wembly in the play-off final is hardly deserving imo......where have the 18,000 wembley attendees last time gone to?

I genuinely feel for those who do have to work but £50/£25 for a flexi card would have been a sound investment now.

Simarlarly those that couldn't afford a season ticket , about 4.50 a week on a payment plan!! can now suddenly pay £100 pounds in ticket and travel and the extras of food, drink accomodation, merchandise etc......this excuse doesn't really add up neither.

I say get queing if you can be bothered and then enjoy the day. If you want tickets in the future then get a season ticket or flexi-card for next year. Your more than welcome.

It isn't petty point scoring it is making a stand in support of myself and the club.

These dyed in the wool supporters who are never in attendance but have now all of a sudden become vocal and visible are the ones who need to feel shame and shut shut their gobs and have some patience and a little humility for turning their back on the club for whatever reason. As this is what they must have done due to the fairly static crowds we have, certainly they are never visible these days or we would be sat in a sea of 80k fervent claret and amber fans.

Some do work weekends, I personally never took a job which invoIved missing Saturday football either playing or going to CIty but I did miss a good few years of going week in week out but that was due to playing myself and still went at every opportunity if our games were off, or City had a midweek match, I ensured I went home or away in those cases, sometimes climbing into my bed at 4AM before getting back up at 7AM to go to work.

If you were ardent or interested enough you would be there every week, Bradford City have made it affordable to do so, this isn't a one off it is a strategic plan to increase our base support which due to all these wonderful 'potential' supporters is obviously there but never turns up.

Never has the phrase 'you get what you deserve' been so right.

I purchased 6 tickets and there will be 9 of us going altogether(other friend is using his), each one a City fan, no ticket sold on for profit, and a chance for me to repay my dad for taking me to my first City game in '72.

My constant support and backing of Bradford City put me in the driving seat to be able to do this, anyone ticketless at present has to look at themselves as to why they are not able to do the same, do this honestly amd you will have to reach the conclusion that others deserve the chance more than you do as they have been the constants and are there every week, even paying up front for the following season, yes this does earn us a bludy good discount too.

What I don't understand is if 10% of those so called glory supporters decide to purchase a season ticket for next year on the back of going to the final is that not a good outcome for the club more supporters more money or am I missing something I know if the bulls got to a final I'd be telling everyone to go support them. I just don't understand the mentality off I've been going since I was in the womb so you've no right to be there surely the more people that are there cheering for Bradford the better or am I wrong ?????

Fair point Bro, but in your example, you either bought a season ticket or you didn't. Thus, when you weren't in a position to go/buy a season ticket, your options were limited. This was NOT the case this season. Every Bradford City supporter had the option to buy a Flexi-card at £50 (or half price if they had a mate that had already bought one.

Top clubs make teams pay an annual membership that is much more than that anyway. I remember Newcastle (and others) charging hundreds for a 'bond'.

I appreciate a season ticket is not viable for all, but to guarantee a ticket at a 'big game' (and the option to attend the odd game at half price) was surely worth £50/£25??

I'm sorry if it offends anyone, but I'm not sorry if somebody misses out on the biggest game of the season just because I'm taking my family. The fact is, I have supported the club financially for the past 25+ years and I believe my family have contributed to this at the same time.

What I would say is that I hope nobody sells tickets for a profit as they are then no better than the scum ticket touts we all hate....!

If all our allocation is sold out, fans still have the option to purchase Wembley Members' tickets, although these are being sold at extortionate prices on several sites...!

Seriously, you didn't have £50 for a flexi-card? The Club have bent over bakwards for the last five years to make supporting the club at VP affordable to the masses. Don't dare suggest that the club should somehow be looking to help those who have stopped turning up. If you really can't afford a flexi-card then you can't afford a bleedin' ticket for Wembley can you!! Please remember; Bradford City is for life; not just for Wembley...
That would make a fantastic car sticker. I think you should patent it and then get someone to make it for you.

To any people who are unaware as to how and why the amount of tickets per ST/FLexi holder came about. The club worked out on a ratio basis afet analysing the uptake of previous cup matches, this worked out at 1.8 PP out of a capacity crowd of 23.5k As we have an allocation of just under 32k the club applied the same ratio to availability and are distributing on that basis. Therefore the amount of tickets that can be bought under those standards is 3 per ST/Flexi. This not only rewards loyalty but leaves a good chunk to go on general sale. As we have never breached 20k for a league game even when giving tickets away or charging £1 entry I cannot see how any one person can complain they haven't or cannot get a ticket. If you are loyal and go regularly you will get a ticket, if you are patient and prepared to be up in time to get in the online queue(registration probbaly needed) or call the hotline on the day of general sale I am sure you will get a ticket. Finally, if you see any tickets offered for sale anywhere but the club, and a few legal ticketmaster type sites, report this to the club as this will be an illegal sale and those tickets may have to be blocked and put back up for resale, hopefully costing those trying to make a buck out of it and making tickets available for those who for whatever reason are currently unable to purchase one or think they may miss out.
Unless the tickets are 'Club Wembley' ones of course. City have no right to those tickets and the Wembley Members have to abide by Wembley Members' rules re tickets.

These are quite possibly the ones that some 'supporters' are now seeing on the various websites.

Face value or not, they are not for resale and your school chum has now become a 'tout' even for no profit.

Secondly, no we weren't all singing from the same hymn sheet, never have been never will be, there is no special City family just the team and the club. Anyone thinking otherwise is severely delusional and possibly needed more cuddles as a kid.

To those saying it has taken the gloss of even though they have their own tickets etc etc, it has sickened them...this is England 2013 not Blitz Britain 1940, get real see life for what it is, not rosy, not nice, not friendly, it is a spiky dog eat dog world and getting worse, we will not halt this slide, it has been decades in the making.

What a great set of games we have had in this competition and I will always remember them and I still hope to be at Wembley come the 24th. I will be patient and hopefully get my single ticket. Lets just get behind the team and hopefully look forward to the Final (I'm praying I will be lucky enough to be there).
A well-structured and balanced post. I do have one question for you though. You mentioned getting tickets for the Arsenal tie and home and away against Villa. How was that possible when they were also season ticket only? Did you have to wait until they went on general sale?

If so, I hope you manage to get a ticket again (by whatever method)

It isn't petty point scoring it is making a stand in support of myself and the club.

These dyed in the wool supporters who are never in attendance but have now all of a sudden become vocal and visible are the ones who need to feel shame and shut shut their gobs and have some patience and a little humility for turning their back on the club for whatever reason. As this is what they must have done due to the fairly static crowds we have, certainly they are never visible these days or we would be sat in a sea of 80k fervent claret and amber fans.

Some do work weekends, I personally never took a job which invoIved missing Saturday football either playing or going to CIty but I did miss a good few years of going week in week out but that was due to playing myself and still went at every opportunity if our games were off, or City had a midweek match, I ensured I went home or away in those cases, sometimes climbing into my bed at 4AM before getting back up at 7AM to go to work.

If you were ardent or interested enough you would be there every week, Bradford City have made it affordable to do so, this isn't a one off it is a strategic plan to increase our base support which due to all these wonderful 'potential' supporters is obviously there but never turns up.

Never has the phrase 'you get what you deserve' been so right.

I purchased 6 tickets and there will be 9 of us going altogether(other friend is using his), each one a City fan, no ticket sold on for profit, and a chance for me to repay my dad for taking me to my first City game in '72.

My constant support and backing of Bradford City put me in the driving seat to be able to do this, anyone ticketless at present has to look at themselves as to why they are not able to do the same, do this honestly amd you will have to reach the conclusion that others deserve the chance more than you do as they have been the constants and are there every week, even paying up front for the following season, yes this does earn us a bludy good discount too.
I don't have a problem with your comments just the ones some are making about making a profit or selling to Leeds fans etc. That's what gets my goat. I agree with the club and as you know have a season ticket so ticket isn't an issue for me. I can just relate to the fact ten years ago i didn't as i worked in the catering industry which meant weekend and evening work,as such i couldn't go then but still loved the club. Hell I've seen more div four games than owt only getting to around six premier games so at least i can't b labelled a glory supporter

Spot on fella. There are hundreds of fans claiming the club have yet them down by their policy to 3 per ST. For whatever reson they have not/cannot justify buying a season ticket/flexi card. This was their decision and I will not belittle their choice.

However, that simply does not justify their belief that they have more right than a ST holder taking a pal that follows another club. As you rightly state above, that 'friend' may well get hooked and become the next generation of supporter. It does happen.

A few years back, I couldn't attend the biggest game of our recent history; the last game of the season against Liverpool. I was devastated I was missing out, but offered my brother-in-law the chance to go and watch us. He was a Man U fan....! He is now (for the umpteenth season since that day) a Bradford City Season Ticket holder. He even has his ticket for next season.

If just 10% of those 'friends' that are getting tickets off ST holders now, get STs themselves for next season, we could easily have another 1500-2000 extra supporters in our crowd come August...!

Sorry fella, but the start of this post is just utter tripe. It is completely poppyc0ck..!

Are you seriously suggesting that someone buying excess tickets on the proviso of selling them onto friends or family are any different than a season ticket holder ordering 3 tickets as the member and selling the other two on to their friends that are non-season ticket holders? Or, if you had 3 season ticket cards and bought 7 tickets, you are going to 'give' the other 4 tickets away?

You don't know what arrangement the ST holder and his mate (above) had. To suggest this is touting is absurd. How is this any different to a ST holder buying online on behalf of someone else???????

I feel strongly on the subject that the club made the right decision regarding allocation. I have strong views that everybody, irrespective of circumstances had the option to buy a ST. However, your 'gloating' is the reason why some fans feel the gloss has worn off our achievement. By all means defend the club's policy, but let's not make this to be a 'you' and 'us' situation.

It has always been an us and them situation, Bradford Shi** being one of the most hilarious 'bantz' bandied about by people I know now who are claiming they have always held us dear to their hearts. So dear they have not bothered to turn up and pay money to watch which nearly saw the club die after GR had hawked off all the silver and the administrator had taken the rest, you may be more forgiving but I'm certainly not. At the time JR became City chairman I was still playing football with him(and working for the family) and could see the damage this was doing to him and his family as he thought we were going to die, I was devastated, as no doubt you and 1000s of other City fans were too, these 3 million fans we now appear to have were laughing and couldn't give a toss, if they had done we would have seen em at VP, as usual it was the few thousand of us as it always has been. Anyway, I really don't care, I have my view and my standpoint, it won't change.

The stated fact is the poster who I commented to said he bought it at face value off an old schoolfriend, not a pre-arrangement, a pre-payment, I am going by stated fact. And as such is an actual tout of a ticket.

In reality there will be many such and slightly differing passes of tickets, some given to family members, some sold to friends, none of these are really touts or touting as we all know, I was being tongue in cheek with that.

None of us want to see tickets being sold on for profit, all of us want true City fans to have the chance to see us as Wembley, by the take up it is obvious the ST holders and Flexi friends have now got theirs so if anyone does hear or see tickets being sold at inflated prices, try find out if they came from City and not as waynus quite rightly stated, one of the Wembley ticket holders who has decided this game is not for them, if a ticket is being hawked about for a profit, report it to the club and see if we can get a few more deserving souls there.

As your brother pointed out above, we have probably seen City play in more 4th division matches over our time of supporting than any other league, this is the lifeblood, this is the bread and butter, sometimes us fans have had to give CPR and buy the bread, 'them' haven't. They just haven't and I have no care or thought for 'them'

I don't believe he mentioned any old school friends. He actually said "got a couple of tickets for the Final via a School Pal this morning". An existing pal, not a past pal. As I said, you don't know if they had made a pre-arrangement.

Where I think you are being harsh, is the fact you are not taking people's circumstances into consideration. Of course there are many that just decided they had had enough of watching us, but likewise some stopped going to games for genuine reasons. My son went and had a season ticket until a couple of seasons ago. However, he now works nights and can no longer attend games. Are you filing him with the rest? Luckily, he still got a 50/50 card so was entitled to a ticket (or 3), but if he hadn't, I would have been disappointed for him.

Lets stop this bickering between each other. Some do have genuine reasons for not attending over the last few seasons.

The problem is, waynus, that thete is no way of identifying the most deserving after accounting for season ticket holders. I believe that most season ticket holders will distribute their entitlement to people who at least care about the club. I know i have.

If its always been a them and us situation it sounds like you would rather not see any new fans or a new generation of fans at city that this final could bring.i mean every st holder I no has bought there max allocation of 3 tickets so they all must be bring people who do not normally attend matches or they would only need there 1 ticket so they must all be bringing "them" fans. Why would you not want new fans on the back of this final to hopefully swell your gates in the future, this could inspire the next generation of city fan which surely is a good thing or would you rather witness 1 season of success now or get on a sound footing for a 100 years of success for your children and grandchildren to enjoy.

Luckily, he still got a 50/50 card so was entitled to a ticket (or 3), but if he hadn't, I would have been disappointed for him. Lets stop this bickering between each other. Some do have genuine reasons for not attending over the last few seasons.[/p][/quote]The problem is, waynus, that thete is no way of identifying the most deserving after accounting for season ticket holders. I believe that most season ticket holders will distribute their entitlement to people who at least care about the club. I know i have.[/p][/quote]If its always been a them and us situation it sounds like you would rather not see any new fans or a new generation of fans at city that this final could bring.i mean every st holder I no has bought there max allocation of 3 tickets so they all must be bring people who do not normally attend matches or they would only need there 1 ticket so they must all be bringing "them" fans. Why would you not want new fans on the back of this final to hopefully swell your gates in the future, this could inspire the next generation of city fan which surely is a good thing or would you rather witness 1 season of success now or get on a sound footing for a 100 years of success for your children and grandchildren to enjoy.

It was my choice not to renew my season ticket and my choice to pay 20 pounds to attend each game. Its right that the fans who have stuck by the club get the first allocation and good luck to them I applaud all those that stuck with the team through the dark times under Nicky Law, Robson etc. It would have been nice to have a second wave of sales for those of us that attended the Burton game for example rather than being lumped in with all the people wanting a day out but thats life. What a great set of games we have had in this competition and I will always remember them and I still hope to be at Wembley come the 24th. I will be patient and hopefully get my single ticket. Lets just get behind the team and hopefully look forward to the Final (I'm praying I will be lucky enough to be there).
A well-structured and balanced post. I do have one question for you though. You mentioned getting tickets for the Arsenal tie and home and away against Villa. How was that possible when they were also season ticket only? Did you have to wait until they went on general sale?

If so, I hope you manage to get a ticket again (by whatever method)
You did'nt mention Burton well that was easy enough as only 4,177 other fans turned up good game that one. My Arsenal ticket I went to the ticket office the Saturday before the game when on general sale easy (nobody in the queue and got served in 2 minutes). The Villa ticket again when on general sale (hopefully proves there will be some left for general sale when ST holders have purchased their during the fortnights window). As I say I have no problems with the allocation at all with ST's having first dibs. What is frustrating though is having to wait until the 13th Feb when alot of work colleagues keep asking if I have a ticket yet (when a lot of them havent been to a City match ever before). That said that's the selling strategy and that's fair enough. Someone told me the other day that those people who went to Villa and have a ticket stub may get priority when the tickets go on general sale but we'll see in due course. If anybody does have a spare ticket of course please do feel free to get in touch. Thanks very much.

Hi
Some further thoughts on this...My family are City fans and have supported them always (my husband was born and bred in Bradford). We now live in the south...we found it hard to get to home games (my husband has now died after a 10 year battle with cancer) as he was often too ill (not to mention the money) BUT we did go to every away game that came vaguely close:Dagenham, Watford, Oxford, Peterborough, Brighton, Notts County, Milton Keynes, Derby, Wimbledon, Luton, Stevenage, Northampton (lost count how many times) Arsenal (Brilliant!!) and Aston Villa (words failed us!) I totally understand how season ticket holders get first dibs but I would like a bit of understanding that not all true fans have the luxury of being home fans as well. I think it may have been fairer to let the season ticket holders have 2 tickets but hey we are where we are. Luckily my lads are recognised on the forum and someone who is a season ticket holder has made their dream come true and is selling us some tickets for wembley...exactly what i would expect from true Bradford fan (thank you!)but i have been really worried that they wouldn't get there and this is a once in a lifetime dream.

I wanted three have got 2 and am very grateful
Roll on 24th February!!!! CTID!!!
