If it happens we'll (realistically) be playing one of Leeds, Blades, West Brom, Villa, Preston, Wednesday, Boro or Forest all of whom would sell their 39k so it'd be 39k tops for us which would be gone within an hour of general sale much like Hull was.

What’s general sale? 😬

Blades probably not, Preston definitely not

Blades averaged more at home in league one than we do now - they’d easily take 40k to a play off final....

How come they havent sold out recent trips to Wembley then?

One example, sales update 27k SU, 20k Hudders. Final attendance 52k. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.thestar.co.uk/news/traffic-and-travel/thousands-following-sheffield-united-to-wembley-1-4571697/amp

That was a league one play off in 2012 - more recently than your example they took over 35k to Wembley in 2014....

Over 35k doesnt sound like 39k to me... 

There is also a discussion on their forum, many doubt they'd take 40k.

Fair enough - you don’t think The Blades would sell out their allocation for a championship play off final at Wembley - I think they would.

Happy to leave it there - enjoy your weekend mate ...

40k unless Bristol bears are playing the same day then I say 20k.

Because half our fan base is bristol rugby supporters... 

Anyway, they won't be playing on the same day so no need to worry!

The play off final between them and Swindon in 2015 had an attendance of 48000, means they'd have taken under 20k probably. 

Can't see them nearly doubling that for the championship final

A school teacher friend of mine, who works at a school in, wait for it, East Sussex, was given free tickets to take the whole class by Swindon for that match . He has no contacts at Swindon, so if they were giving free tickets away to schools over 100 miles from their town, how many tickets did Swindon actually sell.

They sold around 20000 apparently. Meaning there would have been 25k maximum preston fans there

You (relatively) quickly went from pronouncing that PNE took under 20k to saying they took 25k - so you don’t really know...

I don't think anybody outside of the club knows the official figures of what clubs took to Wembley. 

It still doesn't make it look like Preston would take 40k if they made the play off final, which is the OP that I was referring to...

Bitch! Once I'm missing the City for a day out. ;)

Guilty as charged and by God I will feel bad tomorrow. That might be missing the football but more likely the amount of Thatchers I may consume.

I definitely do not think we will make it (there’s a small small possibility) but if we did, how many could we take to Wembley (excluding the fact we will only get about 40k)?

Pointless, we’d sell out whatever we are given?

Given that we can only realistically finish 5th or 6th, the only teams we could potentially meet in the final would be Norwich, Sheff Utd, Leeds or West Brom. You'd expect all to sell their allocation.

Not true. For example, if we finish 5th, there's a 50% chance of meeting the team that finished 6th if we get to the final.

Simple answer this one will be between 35-40 k depending on how many seats the sponsor take, who ever we play if we make it will take there full allocation as well so will not be like in the past when we have been able to get some unsold tickets from the other side,
