Club Aiming For Cup Final Sell-out

Club Aiming For Cup Final Sell-out

Swansea City are aiming to sell out their allocation of 40,000 for the LDV Vans Trophy Final.

This will mean the record attendance of 50,913 for a LDV Vans Trophy Final at the Millenium Stadium will be broken.

Carlisle have already sold more than 8,000 tickets after they were put on general sale on Tuesday. They're well on course to beating their conservative estimate of 12,000.

This will be Carlisle's 4th LDV Vans Trophy final, equalling Bristol City's record of 4 final appearances. The Cumbrians have won the competition just once, in 1997, they beat Colchester 4-3 on penalties.

Director David Morgan said: ''We want this to be a day to remember for everyone connected with Swansea City football club,''

''This will be the last opportunity for Swansea to visit the Millennium Stadium in this competition and we want it to be a winning one.

''Cardiff have won there in the play-offs, Wrexham won this competition last year, so hopefully this year will be our turn.''


Tickets will be available to season ticket holders, 12-book holders, Premier Club and Trust members from Saturday and will then go on sale from Tuesday.

Lee Trundle is also looking forward to a day out in Cardiff and said:

'As a footballer you want to play in front of the biggest crowds you possibly can and, since it's only down the road for us we should take a massive following,''

''We're playing in a fantastic stadium, too, so it should be a brilliant occasion.

''It's definitely going to up there with the best things I've done in football up to now.''


The attention for now though will be firmly on tomorrow's tough home clash with Brentford, another club hoping to win automatic promotion.

Jackett said:

''We're all delighted to be going to the LDV Vans Trophy final and we're very much looking forward to it, but that has to go to the back of our minds now,''

''Our thoughts now must be about Brentford because it is a very big game for us as far as our league campaign goes.

''We're in two finals which is fantastic, but the league is our top priority.

''We've had a busy week already, but the encouraging thing was that our performance level at Colchester was very good. We'll be looking for more of the same tomorrow.''


Trundle added:

''To win at a tough place like Colchester was a big boost for us, but now we need to build on that result in the league,''

''Tuesday has boosted the confidence and we've got to show that in what is a massive game against Brentford.''

I very much doubt we'll get anywhere that figure. I'll be happy if we make 25,000.

I think 30,000 is a realistic target, our highest attendance is 19,000 this season and I think there's loads of gloryhunters that'll be going. Hopefully the prices and the fact the game's in Cardiff won't put too many people off. It'll be interesting to see how many we well sell to season ticket holders etc in the first week.

I reckon if our league performances improve, call 30,000 a realistic target first!
