Manchester City yet to sell out ticket allocation for FA Cup semi-final vs Arsenal

Manchester City have so far yet to sell their ticket allocation for the FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal at Wembley, the club confirmed to Sky Sports News HQ on Thursday.

City took up their full allocation of 33,000 seats for Sunday's match, but due to a number of factors they're yet to sell them all.

Sky Sports News HQ understands that supporters have been put off by the Sunday afternoon kick-off time as it would involve getting back to Manchester late on Sunday night.

There are also fears over travel disruption to and from the capital as the game takes place on the same day as the London Marathon.

When asked for an update on Thursday, City confirmed to Sky Sports News HQ that less than 2,000 seats remain on sale, and these will be available to buy up until the end of play tomorrow.

Supporters wishing to buy tickets must have a previous purchase history or be Manchester City Card Holders - which is a stipulation laid down by the FA.
