Apologies if this has already been answered but I only got home late last night.

Did they ever announce what the official split of the attendance was between Rovers/Town/Neutral.

However much we were outnumbered by we certainly outsung the "one song" Rovers lot for the majority of the time.

And how much money are Town going to get out of it and will it be used on the playing side next season.

Not a huge sum. We are to receive something like 20% of nett ticket sales BUT Wembley take all their costs out of the figure so although 20% equates to something like £300k after VAT and costs it will be a lot less than £100k

Absolute joke of a pay day, ripping off illegitimates, especially after all the money we have forked out.


Supporting the Mighty Mariners for over 30 years, home town club is were the heart and soul is and it's great to be a part of it.

So something like seven and half quid from our pockets goes to Town (100k divided by 13k) and the rest kind of disappears into some off-shore account

John Tondeur tweeted something the other day that See Tickets were going to make more from the sales than either club, which if true is an absolute disgrace.

The cost of hiring Wembley out is just too high for games of this standing.  As nice as it is to be at Wembley, these games need to played at grounds more fitting in terms of capacity.  Even if we used something like Villa Park, we would have lost out 5,000 in ticket sales due to the capacity but I would be confident the clubs would have made more money, much more money.

I must add that the £100k figure was very much a guess and i would perhaps doubt if it is as high as that!!!
