“The City is yours, the city is yours, twenty thousand empty seats, are you…….” Well we all know the rest. More comical shenanigans from the circus over at Eastlands.
If City beat Spurs tonight then they’ll achieve Champions League football for the first time in their history, so you’d think it would be easy to get rid of tickets right? Wrong. Only 24 hours before kick off the official City website was offering cut price tickets:
“Tuesday’s match against Spurs could be a historic one for the Blues and we want as many people as possible there to help the team.
“There are a few tickets remaining for the crucial encounter and they are now available for just £20 for adults and over 65s while under 16s can come for just £10.
“Tickets at this special price are strictly limited and will be available on a first come first served basis.”
It’s a sorry state of affairs when the “best supported club in Manchester” can’t even fill a 40 odd thousand seater stadium for such an historic clash. With Gary Cook claiming the club wanted to increase it’s capacity to rival Old Trafford, I’d suggest they get a few more fans in before they start down that route.
Here’s the link in case you thought I actually made up this sad state of affairs.
