    How do people rate my chances?
    Cat c home is what category I am. I also have lost my sons Fan ID but have sent messages to the club so should get that sorted. I see we will be allocated 28k for the match. And there is a fellow Hornet here in same situation as me. I’ve a lot to arrange for the day out with work and flights accommodations etc. Don’t want to leave it all to late but would love to know if we’d get in. I guess I won’t be the only one traveling from afar so it might be relevant for others too. I’ve already emailed Dave messenger but I think his inbox is probably blown up after Sunday. Any help appreciated.

    You'll probably be battling it out with the other 44,000 category C fans for the last 7,000 tickets.

    Ask Wolves as they had loads of them above us!

    Seriously, check out club wembley website or ticket agents (legal touts) I guess. I don't think you want to join club wembley, which is expensive, but you want those people/companies who are members but don't want to go to that match and will sell their ticket on.

    A lot depends on whether the club are going to do two tickets per season ticket holder. Hopefully the club limits it to just the one.

    I think it will be just the 1 per st holder. More time to sell less and probably more happy clappers like me wanting tickets

    They will allow us to buy in groups though, just link them to a fan id as long as the system has been improved! :)

    I’ll happily buy some of the £145 tickets. Not like I get to go to many games anymore. Don’t agree one bit with the pricing mind it’s absolutely disgusting but I’d have to just look at it as a once in a lifetime occasion. Could always dress up as Harry the hornet and just walk through the players entrance as a last ditch effort

    This is going to sound stupid, but I don't know what home category I am

    At the top It just says I'm away group D, when I click on membership it says I'm home game c valid until 2026, home game b valid until 2026 and home game a valid until 2026...

    If you go to ‘menu’ then ‘ticket access groups’ at the bottom is a red link to ‘your memberships’

    Just spoke with club wembley, they don't authorize re sale of tickets as that has to be done from member to member.
    If they end up on third party sites it's considered illegal.
    So he offered me the Sir Bobby Moore package which could be of interest,
    You get in to the area a box behind the dug out on half way line on the side of your team 3 hrs before kick off.
    A 4 course meal unlimited drink get to stay for 1 hr after final whistle for the small price of £1250 per person
    For that price I expect giraffe on the menu and I would require an ambulance to take me home after the consumption of alcohol I'd have to intake to justify the ticket. WOW but I could end up that desperate to be there. I won't have much to show for it after as I'd be divorced and on the street also probably have a life time ban after trying to lift the cup before Troy

    Once I'm living on the street, with my club wembley carrier bag as a duvet I'd probably have no ways of communication on social media. So when you see me busking outside a tube station singing watford songs be sure to chuck some change take a pew and I'll happily share my experience with you.

    Club Wembley May end up cheaper than touts.

    On the other hand, we may lose.

    Shame it's not Wolves again in the final. I'm sure they'd have carried on their lovely habit of sending monetary donations from the middle tier.

    Think we have the West side again. We have the red car park, which is West and City have yellow car park which is North East

    Wolves had club seats for sale from the off at £120 then got another 1500 when they were unsold that is how some ended up at our end of the ground

    Wolves’ official Club Wembley seats were at their end or in the lower tier on the halfway line. The ones at our end will have bought through third party ticket reselling sites, which had loads available.

    I'm going to burn £290 on this but jeez:

    80% City play to their best and pass us off the park
    15% Refs sort them out and Pep tells me that City would have won anyway
    5% We win and the Pep tool has a meltdown about how unfair life is

    Guess the 5% is always worth the chance.

    We do.. lucky omen?

    Think i'm right in saying that we had the West side of Wembley for our two victories at the national stadium.. Play off final 99 and Wolves semi. We were allocated the East side for the Cup Final in 84 and the Palace play off final. The only anomaly being the Palace semi when we were on the West side.

    That won't be a problem.

    Our home matches less the away support at most is 17k leaving 11k of tickets for occasional fans so plenty for all.

    This is where i hope the club change it a bit, selfishly, i’ve got about 10 home and 10 away, but dont qualify any higher than a C for home and D away. Was an ST for 12 years in the 90s and early 00s and still try and go to a few each season from Somerset. But i am the same as someone who has been to 1 game in lst 4 years only in categories. My main hope is that those less ticketed fans are put off by price and effort. Otherwise i’ll be bankrupting the credit card for club wembley or touts i fear.

    We will sell the allocation out. But I’m also very confident that anyone who wants AND deserves a ticket will get one given the numbers involved.

    There’s just not going to be many at all spare after that.

    The caveat to that is the chance that the club completely balls up the ticket buying process....which isn’t beyond them.

    Well... 5 mins aftwr that they have posted the details, and as a home c and away d, i’ll be in. They are doing that before anyone that has just 1 ticket, which appears to be 22k people if i read that right.

    I think you're wrong.

    Theres 22k in groups a and b THEN 22k in group C part 1. I think you'll probably be ok though but you'll be in the scramble if there is one.

    Yeah, have just re-read and confused. I’m sure there was 44k group c before, but now there seems to be 44k +22k so am confused.
