United complain over FA Cup tickets

Brought to you by William Hill


Manchester United have complained to the Football Association about the number of tickets they have been granted for next month's FA Cup tie at Manchester City.

Under FA rules, United should be entitled to an allocation equivalent to 15% of the ground capacity at the Etihad Stadium, which would be 7,100 tickets. Instead, City have offered 5,500 - exactly the same as United were granted for the first leg of the Carling Cup semi-final two years ago.

However, whilst that tie was agreed relatively quickly, the Red Devils are digging their heels in on this occasion and are demanding their full entitlement.
