Wembley play-off final handed attendance boost

Brentford and Swansea City have each been allocated an extra 1,000 tickets for Saturday’s Championship play-off final at Wembley Stadium, bringing the total capacity for the match to 12,000.

Current guidelines set by the UK government mean that up to 10,000 fans can attend events at large outdoor venues in England. Earlier in the week, Brentford and Swansea urged the government to allow more fans for Saturday’s showpiece fixture at Wembley, which has an overall capacity of 90,000.

The two clubs had initially been allocated 4,000 tickets each but they have now been given an extra 1,000 each as part of an NHS trial. The capacity limit for the League One and League Two play-off finals, which will take place on Sunday and Monday, respectively, will remain 10,000.

The remaining 2,000 tickets for the Championship play-off final will be split between Club Wembley, event organisers and sponsors. In line with contractual arrangements, EFL sponsors and partners will receive around five per cent of the allocation, with any unused tickets to be passed to clubs.
