The Lowdown: Sold out
As per the Wearside club’s official website, they have now sold out all of their ticket allocation for the final, which equates to more than 43,960.
Is this the year that Sunderland finally get out of League One?
They have now made a request to the EFL and Wembley Stadium to further increase their ticket allocation, and a further update will be issued in due course.
The Latest: Copley stunned
Taking to Twitter, Sunderland Echo journalist Copley was stunned when he heard the news, claiming that it was an ‘outstanding effort’ by the Sunderland supporters.
He gushed: “Over 43,960 tickets sold to Sunderland fans for Saturday… request is now into the EFL for more. What an outstanding effort!”
The Verdict: Great support
Sunderland are a huge club and have a large fanbase, drawing by far the biggest average attendance in League One, but to sell almost 44,000 tickets for the play-off final, with the potential to add thousands more, really shows their great support.
Wycombe have a much smaller fanbase by comparison and would not be able to sell as many tickets, so the remaining seats left in the stadium should be given to other Sunderland supporters who are willing to make the trip to London for the final.
They should be given the opportunity to be there to see Alex Neil’s team potentially gain promotion back to the Championship, in what could hopefully be the first step towards eventually getting back in the Premier League.
