Tickets Now Sold Out Tue 23rd May 2000 16:43
Town have now sold all their tickets for Wembley. The 36,800 seats went in just four days and prior to them going on general release. Unscrupulous fasn and touts are now offering tickets at well over their face value. Anyone trying to buy seats in this way should of course beware of being stung.
Wembley Tickets Touted Tue 23rd May 2000 15:08
Tickets in the Town end for Monday's game are being openly touted on the Internet well above face value. One company is offering £30 tickets at the tunnel end for £150. A few minutes ago they had "only twelve left" which suggests they may have had many more. Given the nature of the priority schemes it will be interesting to discover where these tickets came from, particularly in the light of the misconduct charge brought against the club last week, if we ever do. Meanwhile at Portman Road it seems there are a few hundred seats still available for those with four stubs from previous games and there is every likelihood that there will be a few tickets going to the general lottery after all. There will still not be any general sales in person.
Almost Sold Out Tue 23rd May 2000 11:55
Town have almost sold out their Wembley ticket allocation with many fans likely to be unhappy at the way tickets were distributed. This morning fans with four stubs from previous games were anxiously waiting in line at Portman Road for the last 3,000 tickets. Last night at around 10 pm queues stretched from the main gates all the way along to the North Stand with many others joining later. All seats are likely to be gone by this lunchtime. Some fans desperate for tickets are trying to order seats through Barnsley who are experiencing quite the same clamour for seats as Town. This is likely to be frowned upon by both clubs and the notoriously strict Wembley security.
