apparently they  are unsold club wembley tix at derby end and all the ones at our end have sold out !!!

Typical fair allocation by the FA - The club with an average attendance several thousand less get a further allocation - is anybody surprised? There are plenty of tickets left for BAKU though - Arsenal and Chelsea can't even sell their allocation of 6,000 - fickle fans lol.

It's not a further allocation. Its tickets that have always been available to them that will now be sold through Derby.

According to press article, Derby official allocation is now 38000 whereas Villa is capped at 36285. Extra seats due to there being unsold Club Wembley seats at Derby end. That is patently unfair. Effectively converting unsold "neutral" seats into allocated Derby seats.

We'll have more in the ground than them, as they'll be Villa in their Club Wembley too.

That sucks if itís true. Why should one club get more than another?

How is that being allowed? Surely Club Wembley tickets can only be accessed via Club Wembley, is that not the entire point of the initiative? Why would they ever be released to a single specific club for direct sale to their fanbase?

It's an extra £200k they wouldn't otherwise get.

They're not going to leave empty seats when they can sell them. A good portion of these may end up in Villa hands anyway.

Well obviously it profits them. They wouldn't do it otherwise. It's still not right though, is it?

Well exactly - so why are they only releasing them to Derby, and not both clubs?

Because the CW seats at the Villa end have all been sold, that's why, one assumes to Villa fans.

It makes way more sense for Derby to get first dibs at these, they're at their end of the ground.

Yes, they sold out - were they sold via Aston Villa Football Club?

For Club Wembley tickets you could register your interest as a fan of one of the clubs in the play-offs before the finalists were known - although not strictly part of our allocation, Wembley themselves managed the sales to fans who had registered their interest as a Villa or Derby (or indeed Leeds or WBA) fan and so presumably can maintain segregation.

I'm guessing that we had thousands of fans who were willing to take the risk before knowing we were in the final (and who have got the money to spare) for Wembley to allocate all of these seats at the full Club Wembley price to Villa fans who pre-registered.  Derby probably didn't have the same, and these tickets are now going to the club to be sold at CAT A prices to prevent there being 2000 empty seats when demand clearly outstrips supply.

The thing I would be annoyed about is being a Villa fan who paid the full Club Wembley price knowing there are Derby fans in equivalent seats who have probably paid a lot less for them.  It's a supply and demand thing I guess, but I don't want to start getting into the rights and wrongs of that particular argument!

Yes and who is sitting in the completely sold out West side Club Wembley? It will be Villa and as East side Club Wembley were cheaper, there will be loads of Villa in there too.

We will have more than 38k inside the ground. Have a look when we score who goes up.

OK so my Derby colleague tried to get in - they were Club Wembley seats at £98 and the ones in the 12-3 o'clock quadrant as you look at the seat map, he was going to try and get me one as close to Villa fans as possible, but they had all sold out when he managed to get in.  I sat next to him and watched him do it.  They use exactly the same que-it system as us.
