The club released ticket details for the Steel City derby at Hillsborough on February 18th over the festive period, but there seems to be much confusion about how to obtain a ticket.
Non-season ticket holders are required to attend two of three home matches over January and February to be able to get a ticket for the game. The club says the scheme has been implemented to stop Blades fans sitting in the home end for the match, but fans who can't attend the qualifying matches will be without a ticket for the big one. Sheffield United have recieved a lower than usual allocation after problems with the North-West corner stand. The Blades have been allocated the West stand upper and lower, totalling around 6,000 tickets.
The club have announced that the match will be made ALL TICKET, so tickets have to be bought before the game and won't be made available on the turnstiles.
Two stubs from the following three matches are required to buy a ticket for the derby:
Leicester City (H) - Saturday 14th January
Luton Town (H) - Tuesday 31st January
Crystal Palace (H) - Saturday 11th February
Season ticket holders can buy tickets for up to two guests on Monday 16th January, but have to show two ticket stubs form the above games. This date will also allow SWFC members to buy tickets. The club have announced that because of fan feedback, MEMBERS NOW DO NOT NEED THE TICKET STUBS to get a ticket for the derby.
Remaining tickets will then be put on sale to fans with the relevant ticket stubs on Monday 23rd January.
The scheme means it's unlikely we'll see a full house for the match, despite the massive importance for both clubs, and the chance to see Wednesday get revenge for their 1-0 defeat at Bramall Lane in December.
Fans who live abroad, or are unable to attend most weeks due to other commitments, are now unlikely to be able to attend due to the ticket requirements the club have put in place.
On the other side of the coin, it means that the club could get extra income from fans desperate to attend the derby, who will attend two of the next three matches.
