The Football Association has reacted to the storm over ticket prices by reducing the cost of attending the FA Cup final and semi-finals.

Following five pound cuts across the board, tickets for the May 21 Wembley showpiece will start at ?45, excluding concessions, and semi-final tickets will begin at ?30.

A statement from the FA read: "Following discussions led by chief executive Martin Glenn, The FA today confirms that ticket prices for the 2016 Emirates FA Cup final at Wembley have been reduced by ?5 across all price points.

"In addition, tickets for this year's semi-final matches revert back to 2014 prices.

"So far, this season's competition has seen attendances close to two million and ?13m distributed to clubs across the football pyramid.

"The FA is in a good financial position and lowering the cost of these showpiece matches is in recognition of the strong, continued commitment from fans supporting the world's original cup competition."

The semi-finals are scheduled to take place on April 23 and April 24.

The subject of ticket prices has been much debated in recent weeks.

Liverpool fans walked out of their draw with Sunderland earlier this month after 77 minutes, causing the club's owners to change their plans for a ?77 match ticket from next season.
