    FA Cup final question

    Hi Wolves, Iím a newcomer in this forum, short intro by my side Ė born and living in Sofia, Bulgaria, being a Wolf since late 80s (actually the inspiration and addiction to the club came after an article about the legendary Steve Bull in the only sports newspaper in my country at that time). Iím really enjoying the fantastic season we have had up to now and Iím sure we will get a deserved European tournaments spot by the end of the campaign.

    In this context, I thought recently it will be dream come thru if I have the chance to visit one of the biggest events in English football Ė the FA Cup final, and on top of that to be able to support my favorite English club (I have no doubt we will pass through the hornets seamlessly). However, my initial enquiry in the web showed that there is no general sale of tickets for the FA Cup final, with 2/3 of the seats allocated to both participating teams and the remaining seats provided to FA partners, sponsors and other related parties. Of course there are some ticket portals, provided with very limited amount of tickets, selling at prices ranging from 350 to 1200 pounds per seat, which price unfortunately I could not afford.

    For this reason Iím turning politely to the forum here, if someone could give me any guidance what are the options to fulfill my dream. Iím a registered member of the club at the official site, however, as Iím living some 1,500 miles away of Molineux, I do not have tickets history or loyalty points.

    If you have paid to be a member you will have 100 loyalty points even if you haven't been to a game. However, should we make the final each club gets approximately 28,000 tickets rather than the 33,345 we got for the semi-final (before the extra 1,000 were announced). Demand will far outstrip supply.

    All season ticket holders should get a ticket, but after that there are going to be less than 6,000 tickets left for members. It simply won't make 100 points before it sells out.

    Your best bet might be trying to get a club wembley ticket, but for the final these could be extremely expensive.

    I wish you luck, but it is going to be a challenge to get a ticket I suspect.

    Welcome to the forum though. Please stick around!

    Have to agree with Paddy - if you are a member with the minimum 100 points then will struggle to get a seat for a final (though most of us are not looking at that till we deal with Sunday)

    Season Ticket holders should be OK, but it won't go that far down into the members. Hopefully you can find a way (your distance away makes my 150 mile journey look like a short trip down to the shop).

    Yep, I have 160 points but I doubt I will even get one.

    Belyan, welcome to the forum, i am a life long wolves supporter living on the island of evia in Greece, so that kinda makes us neighbours.
    Now and again i can find a stream that works and the guys on the forum will Pm you with guidance on that, but the surest way is to register on the official wolves site, and listen to the live radio broadcast. it's not like being there exactly, but from this far away it's not too bad.

    Simple fact is that once Season Ticket Holders of the two clubs involved have taken their go, FA Cup Final tickets will be like gold dust.

    Think that this will still be on mainstream UK television so if you can access that may still be able to watch if you can't get there.

    It has to be on the BBC as it is a crown jewels event.

    Unfortunately we didn't make it Two goals that came aboslutely from nothing at the end of regular time.... but sometimes football is unfair and bites hard

    Thanks for all guidance provided, if not a FA cup final, I will be at a Wolves match some day, sooner rather than later. Heads up!
