Is it because the Leicester game went to general STHs and members?

I do agree though, they couldíve gone back to previous seasons with the add on of Leicester in the first sale.

IF we go to the final, they should go back as far they need to for a guarenteed sale but you know theyíll sell on Leicester and Arsenal only and most of us will be screwed again for another final.

City got 35,000 in 2020. Preston was about 6k. Would leave 29k for everyone with Leicester and Arsenal. Ballot odds would be good enough to be honest

But you have to skim off club allocation, priority rights holders and also the 5,000 seasonal hospitality holders who are guaranteed semi's and finals at neutral grounds with over 22k allocation (or something close to that)

Does anyone know how ticketing for a final would work? Would there be an online sale for those who qualify where we select seats or would it be a ballot and tickets are allocated? Iím guessing it would be paper tickets rather than NFC given itís at Wembley.

Acutely aware we arenít there yet but we can hope.

Still will be better odds than the UCL finals, not sure why the total allocation isn't closer to 40k but anyway

Isn't closer to 40k because of club Wembley and sponsors etc..

25,578 people registered for the Kyiv final, even if the remaining tickets left was 20,000 and 30,000 registered that's still 66% chance of winning

They sometimes show in a random place in your ticket history - if you're a member buying PL tickets then any others bought after that seem to be put below them on the history list for some reason, so it could just be that you've not spotted it lower down.

If you're not going to Shrewsbury it should show as your Next Game on your account home page as well.

Having said that I just checked mine and it doesn't seem to be showing either except in my ACS list but sometimes they do strange stuff with the ACS tickets anyway! As long as you've got your email you should be fine.

personally considering my brothers would be in the ballot I'd prefer my chances with first come first serve but for a final a ballot is probably the right thing

After Christmas, Covid, tickets not £10 like at the Emirates. No other excuses for a semi final.

with current queue system that would be a joke. People would probably rent out an entire office to put all the pcs in the queue to have better odds of getting a high queue position. Ballot is by far the fairest system unless they sort out the queue to be one queue position per account and not device

I really don't understand how that's not already the case. 30K in a queue for tickets, sometimes takes two hours to get in, and there's still one or two left when you get in.

A bit dramatic if you go to that length for a footy ticket but it wouldnít surprise me.í

I think a ballot is the fair way to do it, unfortunately for me. Go back to queuing at the ground

I'm sure it'd happen in a champions league final. I know someone who did 30 devices for Preston all ST sale

With the postponement of the 1st leg - anyone know why the legs couldn't have been reversed, so Liverpool would have 2nd leg at home ie. Arsenal at home on 13th & L'pool at home on 20th ?

Itís possible LFC agreed to that just to make the initial postponement easier to approve. But also probably unfair for both sets of fans who made plans for a game at anfield on the 13th to suddenly change their plans for a game in London.

Yeah, that's fair enough and understandable from the fans perspective........it was a pain having already travelled to London last week before the postponement, for valid reasons which I agreed with.

Probably a long shot lads but I'm looking for a single in the away end for Arsenal away next week. If anyone might have one I'd be overly appreciative and will return the favour at any point in the future. On a ST holiday due to post pandemic finances so have no access so no idea where else to look or post. Have an Arsenal friend who can get tickets but sat with their lot for the FA Cup match in 2014 where we were robbed of a pen on Suarez and dont fancy that again. Apologies if this is wrong, never had a post like this before and don't know what the story is.

Thanks in advance <3
