Because we want more people to sit (stand) together. Also selling in blocks of 10 means less single/double seats in later sales. In the later sales it would be hard to find a chunk of tickets together and by only allowing 4 a time, its fairer for smaller groups, a bigger groups needs just 1 of 10 people to get through to sort the group.
Finally in later sales the chances of a group of 10 being in a similar credit level is rare, but higher levels with people on lots a different credits being in the same sale it would be easier to get a group of 10

10 when it's guaranteed I think, 4 when it isn't so more people have a chance. Think that is what someone said b4 on here.

Still only one per qualifying FC/ST though

Emirates Air Miles can be used to get semi-final tickets. Against modern football.
It's the same old story, all love and glory. It's a pantomime.

And the media  do genuinely debate why the FA cup has lost its way over the last decade and a bit
Teams(ahem) not entering - ridiculous match scheduling -  collect airmiles for semi final..repeat semi final tickets

Bellends

That is outrageous! Imagine struggling to get a ticket and hearing about shite like that happening.

mot great marketing but those tickets are coming out of the sponsor allocations so would be going to either competition winners or corporate freebies anyway.
It is far to much that 1/3 of the stadium goes to corporate seats but 8000 or so for the fa grassroots are also tickets that should go to actual fans or should come out of the sponsors tickets.

Presumably these are in the neutral sections? Still wrong like, but there are so many tickets which aren't given to the two finalists.....

They are not in the neutral sections, the are guaranteed to be in the end of whichever club you follow.

Had a lad outside the tram station at the etihad on sunday offering 300 for away end tickets and home end tickets as well, had to 'contact the lad if we wanted them' and he'll be there in minutes, what a joke

They'll always be touting unfortunately as demand always outstrips supply
who are you to judge the life i live?

Compulsory 15% like fa cup games would solve it.

10 percent for aways would be great well worth taking the hit at home.

Years ago before seats you got loads of away tickets , this fell due to reduced capacity after seats but loads of grounds have expanded now giving them the same or more than before, Old Trafford, Arsenal, West Ham, City and soon to be Chelsea and Spurs not forgetting ourselves.

I'd be more than happy to lose 2k more if it meant less touting and bigger aways at bigger grounds 100%

Thing is, most clubs don't take a full allocation at aways as it is, so upping it to 10% / 15% or whatever isn't going to benefit many clubs at all

We need more tickets,  we could have taken 10000 to City on Sunday (maybe more).  If we had an unlimited number of tickets what would our lowest away following be?  Posssibly 5000 at an unattractive venue in midweek December.  Quite happy to take the hit on the home tickets at Anfield provided we get extra tickets for aways.   Easily done without any effect on the atmosphere if you weed out the arl'arses, bellends and whoppers.

Don't disagree it'd benefit us in the slightest. But I'd say maybe 5 out of 20 clubs in the Premier League would take the maximum 10/15%. That's why I never see it happening.

Think you'd be surprised how many teams would take, especially with the £30 being in place. If Newcastle and Leeds came up they would take loads everywhere.
