City send back semi-fi­nal tick­ets

Daily Mail - - Premier League - JACK GAUGHAN

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.
