City send back semi-final tickets
MANCHESTER CITY are unlikely to sell all their tickets for Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Brighton. They have sold only around 25,000 for their fourth trip to Wembley this season. They have had to return 2,000 extra tickets, sent in addition to their allocation of more than 30,000, back to the FA. The club say those are the more expensive tickets, with prices of up to £120, and all categories of tickets remain on general sale. Pep Guardiola’s side have three London games in eight days, with a Champions League date at Spurs’ new stadium and a trip to Crystal Palace following the semi-final. Fans attending Saturday’s game have also complained that travelling back to Manchester after the 5.30pm kick-off is causing problems, with the last train from London at 9.24pm. Benjamin Mendy will face no action from City as he did not break club rules when out partying in the early hours of Saturday morning.
