The BBC have confirmed that Arsenal will receive a bumper 42,882 ticket allocation for the FA Cup semi-final against Wigan Athletic.
The figure comes as a fillip to the club’s 42,000 season ticket holders who should as a consequence have no problem securing a ticket.
In the two previous trips to the new Wembley, the Chelsea FA Cup semi-final in 2009 and the Carling Cup final in 2011, some fans missed out due to the higher proportion of tickets taken by opposition support and those on corporate jollies.
Wigan’s allocation for the game on 12 April is 22,807 and has been agreed based on their supporter attendance at this season’s Community Shield and last term’s Wembley outings.
Tickets are to be priced between £30-60.
In Sunday’s semi-final sees a more even split in ticket numbers with Hull receiving 32,011 tickets and Sheffield United 31,796.
