Kind of expected 6K for Arsenal. I suppose 5K feels like a kick in the bow locks as it immediately follows Norwich's 8K.

City allocation is clearly a small one due to the high initial points. Anyone have an idea as to what this might be? Clearly it's not the 3 tiers, but surely not only the bottom tier?

**** allocation...

This will reach general sale on the Arsenal side, so will be plenty in the home ends available.

arsenal or west ham are stupid with the size of the allocation

As a result there will be loads of west ham in the arsenal end

it will be very easy to get tickets as most the arsenal season ticket holders I know aren't going because they have to pay for this game even its £10 as they are used to getting most cup games included in their season ticket and most are "snobs" as they see this cup and the europa league as having little value

forget the stated attendance for the Europa league at emirates the actual attendance is much lower lots of sth don't go and cant resell their tickets but the attendance stated includes them

as to man city the lack of an allocation statement is unusual and coupled with the high points start suggests west ham have taken a small allocation.

yes its live on tv on a sunday but unlike the everton game perfectly possible to get a train back afterwards.

the club should be more open about the allocation as its clearly way too small for both games.

and finally announcing yesterday afternoon that tickets for man city go on sale this afternoon at 3pm to bondholders with their priority rights ending tomorro morning at 9am is unacceptable. do they think everyone is glued to the official website ?

Man City is odd. Short notice, late sale and high points. Are they hiding low allocation? This was thought to be a game anyone could get to.

I'm sure we sold out last year when it was also a 4pm Sunday game.

Norwich initially only had 5,200, yet this sold out in 3 hours.

They were then given an additional 3,800.

Fingers crossed it's the same for us, but doubtful.

Anyway there's no restrictions on this from Arsenal's side, so once it hits general sale with them fill your boots!

They've already shown against Cologne that they'll do **** all about it...

I thought City was going to be an absolute banker on 13 points. I'm hoping it still is, however with the very high starting point requirement I'm concerned the allocation is going to be abysmal.

Strange.

After missing the first batch of aways for personal reasons, I was hoping to get the tally back up with Everton, City and Arsenal to help my chances for Spurs.

Well Tottenham went down to 8 with a similar allocation, and since then we will have had Palace, Watford, Everton, Man City and Stoke... so I reckon you'll be wanting at least 12 for an Arsenal ticket

Out of that list those on 8 @ the time Spurs went on sale would only have been able to purchase Everton tickets (to date). Factoring in the fact we're 1 step further in the cup, but with a slightly larger allocation and it's not against Spurs I reckon it'll be about 8 again.

It's a cup QF, this will easily go to 9 or 10 I reckon.

Everton and Man City smaller allocations? These are the only games people with lower points or memberships can get to and they lower the allocation, what a kick in the balls.

What was the point of buying a £40 membership, last away game I got a ticket to was Sunderland away which I am sure was the last time they went to members. Was planning on city away but I guess that gone for a burton.

They don't want you spending your money on away tickets what with more and more home tickets becoming available with every game.

I think that it's in London and £10 is more of a factor.

Couldn't shift our League cup allocation vs Man City a few years back and that was a semi!

Same here, don't look like there's much early uptake for this one.
Or it's been huge & they started selling from the back down, so nearly sold out now.

I rang ticket office. Helpful as usual.
Allocation for Man City is just under 2000.
