Birmingham Sold Out

Birmingham Sold Out

Tickets for the Owls' final away fixture of the season at promotion-chasing Birmingham City have sold out without even reaching general sale.

Wednesday are believed to have received around 2,600 tickets for the fixture at St Andrew's, after receiving an initial allocation of just under 1000 and a further allocation of 1700 last week.

But Birmingham officials are set to refuse Wednesday any further tickets with demand set to be high for their final home fixture of the current campaign with all to play for for Steve Bruce's men.

The Blues' normal allocation for away fans is 3,000 and can be increased to around 4,500 should demand require it - but it's unlikely the Owls ticket office will recieve any further allocations, leaving some fans having to listen to the clash on the radio.

The clash could be pivotal for both clubs as Wednesday still remain upbeat about snatching a play-off spot should their win their final three matches, while Birmingam currently sit just a point behind Derby County with a game to spare for automatic promotion.

Don't clubs have to give 10 per cent to away fans, in which case Birmingham would have to give 3,000?

I think so, but it could have been Wednesday who turned down the tickets?

I was told that Sheffield wednesday were offered 4000 tickets but could not return any unsold, so they opted for the initial 1400, the club obviously doesnt know the fans very well!
