Villa Wembley FA Cup Semi Tickets STILL AVAILABLE

Villa Wembley FA Cup Semi Tickets STILL AVAILABLE

This is a shame to read. There are still tickets available for Villa v Chelsea at Wembley this weekend.

Not sure if Chelsea have sold out their allocation. To be fair it is easier to get there when already in London (although only just, what a stupid place for a National Stadium ffs... I digress)

Putting aside those who genuinely want to go but can't due to work/lack of money/family commitments, it is still shocking how many wanted final tickets - and how many will want FA Cup final tickets if / when we get there but don't want to cheer the lads on in the semi.

Ok, it is a trawl and a bit of a pain at times getting to Wembley and I do realise that some have been so badly traumatised by the The Great Munchies Wembley Scandal! but surely some aren't holding back because they think we can't win? Surely those who aren't the managers biggest fans aren't holding back? We support the club not a manager/player or board don't we!? This isn't the Villa way is it?! Also, although the underdogs and on the back of a bit of a mauling, we have beaten them before, we'll beat them again, what better way to spend the day than getting down to cheer on the Claret And Blue to our first FA Cup final in a decade?!

Anyway, mini ramble over... not looking to open up the bigger fan argument but I thought these tickets would be snapped up. Don't like anyone's chances of getting a final ticket if they don't have the semi final attendance record either!

Personally, I can't wait. COME ON YOU VILLA BOYS!

Ticket info:

Villa's semi-final match-up with Chelsea is nearly upon us and your backing will be vital as we look to progress to the FA Cup Final.

From 8.30am today (Thursday), supporters with ANY Aston Villa booking history - home or away - will be eligible to buy a semi-final ticket on a one ticket per client reference number basis.

Season card holders are also reminded that they can STILL purchase a further two tickets per season card reference number.

All bookings will be limited to six tickets per transaction with purchasers only able to buy available tickets and limited to personal callers to the Villa Village Ticket Office due to postal restrictions - available on a first come, first served basis subject to availability.

Due to the close proximity of this fixture, it is now impossible to guarantee tickets will arrive with purchasers if posted.

Therefore, tickets will only be sold to personal callers or supporters who can collect their tickets from the Villa Village Ticket Office prior to 3pm on Friday April 9.

The big match takes place on Saturday April 10 - ko 5pm - at Wembley Stadium.

In the very latest news update by the British Transport Police, they are strongly advising fans to check the availability of trains returning to Birmingham once the game has finished as there is a limited service available.

We have slightly under 32,000 tickets allocated. The allocation for the final is 25,000. There are many reasons why tickets are still available. These include the fact the semi shouldn't be at Wembley. Cost. Fickleness. Apathy. Not having enough supporters. My personal view is that we have too many glory hunters. We sold the League Cup Final tickets and were informed that we could have sold these 3 times over. If that is the case where are the 60,000 fans who couldn't get tickets for that game? Why are they not snapping up the tickets for this game? Imho every visit to Wembley should be treated as if it might be your last. You never know when the opportunity will happen again. It will be interesting to see how the club allocate tickets for the Final should we get there. There is the distinct possibility of non season card holders who have been to every FA Cup match not getting tickets. Or maybe the club should allocate tickets based on attendance during a particular competition? Whatever the scenario there is likely to be some controversy over ticket allocations should we get through. This will be ironic when we can't sell out this allocation. I remember the days when we used to be a big, well supported club.

uhhhh,I want us to lose because I don't support Villa that's why I spend so long on Villa fan sites.Every story related to Villa fans at the moment seems to be twisted to portray them as the worst fans in the world.I give up.

Villa also messed up the ticketing for this semi. Monday was originally the last chance to book over the phone meaning a lot of supporters who cannot get to villa Village missed out even if they had a 6 game booking history, particuarly those from around the country. That has now been changed-too late though. This new policy should have been texted out as well

People are only picking up on what you said pking because you said "f** the semi". No one is expecting fans from all over the world to go, it would be rediculously expensive i understand not everyone can afford it. What i am pi$$ed off about are the people that were moaning about not getting a final ticket that can go to th semi and people who just wont go. Im just baffled by it, if i couldnt afford it, i would beg steal or borrow to go, get the cheapest ticket, cheapest transport down there id do anything to go

Look it's early in the afternoon and I've taken over this msg board so you can see how productive a morning I've had.I had too much coffee on board I read the article got annoyed and lost control.F*** the semi is clearly a stupid comment that is difficult to defend.I know no one is having a go a foreign fans that should really be supporting teams in their own league anyway.I didn't think tickets would be available so I didn't even try to get one.I'm sure many other fans had no idea they stood a chance of getting one.
