There will be no extra tickets available to the Cardiff City fans left without a ticket for the FA Cup semi-final against Barnsley this coming Sunday.


Cardiff City sold out their 33000 allocation on Sunday, and applied to Wembley asking for additional tickets to sell.


However, to the dismay of many – no further tickets will be made available. This is doubly frustrating given the likelihood that many seats will be left unoccupied across the stadium.


Club Wembley members are gauranteed tickets, but it is anticipated that many will not turn up given the less glamourous clubs competing, in comparison to the usual ‘big 4’ of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.


The magic of the FA Cup is alive, but many people are just not interested in a match between Cardiff City and Barnsley. Unfortunately, it is up to those people exclusively if they will turn up, they are not able to sell-on their seat and so ture fans will be left without tickets.



Those of us who are there will surely be appreciative and make this a truly memorable day. With a realistic chance of winning, this game takes on just as much, if not more significance than that famous play-off victory over Queens Park Rangers – I just hope for the same outcome, although a more interesting game would also be welcome!
