5,040 allocation for Arsenal, £10 each and on sale next Weds.

Man City details also up now.

with no indication of allocation.

That Arsenal allocation is a joke considering they can and do easily offer more for other cup matches.

High initial points indicates a small allocation?

Anyone know why we only have an allocation of 5040 for Arsenal when they usually allocate 9000 to away teams in Cup Games (as per Norwich in last round)

Doesn't say allocation for Man City but starts on 23 points which suggests they've kept it small.

The old bill.

Chelsea had similar issues when they had a recent cup tie at the Emirates if my memory serves me correctly.

It's down to the SAG as well. Chelsea got 9k a few seasons back yet Liverpool and Spurs have only had 5k, that was the FA Cup as well where they're entitled to 15%.

Away allocation cut in half again, FFS. It's a league cup game in a stadium full of tourists. 5,000 seems a bit extreme.

It's not though, 10% is the max for this cup and taking into account segregation this is all they had to offer us.

10% is the maximum or minimum?

Of course West Ham are different to Norwich...but they gave them 8,000? How much segregation is there?

Just seems a little over the top to me, but nevermind.

Minimum is 10%.
We've got about that.
They chose to give more to Norwich, but maybe because they didn't think they'd sell the seats to Arsenal fans.
But as Chelsea & Spurs found, Old Bill don't like large away allocations for certain clubs.

Sorry, minimum. They've given us all they're obliged to. As brownout says, they gave Norwich more as it makes sense to, they would sell them and won't be any bother. They're clearly confident of selling more to their own fans for our visit, especially at a tenner a pop.

Getting shafted on away allocations is rearing its ugly head once again.

Surely we should have at least 1000 more? We were given 9,000 vs Manchester Utd in the cup 2 seasons ago...I'd say we have more of a rivalry than we do with Arsenal (if any at all).

That was FA Cup where minimum allocation is 15%.

Norwich got 9k in the round before... absolutely no legitimate reason why we couldn't have had the same or a least a couple of thousand more.

It's a very small minority that want to cause trouble and it's not the 80's any more.

Have Arsenal put a restricted general sale on like Spurs did?

Is the low allocation to do with pricing???

The way they've said "prices..agreed with the game falling so close to the festive season" makes me think GSB have suggested we take a lower allocation, at a lower price, so they can say to the fans "Oh look! We've got you a great deal here - Arsenal tickets at only £10!!!"

The Arsenal allocation is not the 9k we were expecting, because it means there'll be 4 thousand less angry Hammers after a shocking refereeing decision knocks us out.

Few people seem to think we will get given more once we get through the 5k... we can only hope.
