Arsenal defend Manchester United ticket allocation for FA Cup tie
Arsenal have defended offering a smaller ticket allocation to Manchester United for their FA Cup tie www sbobet888 with a United fan group calling the decision "hypocritical". United have only been given 8.7 per cent of tickets for the January 25 fourth-round meeting at the Emirates Stadium - with FA Cup rules stating 15 per cent should be made available for visiting sides.
The decision www sbobet888 has been derided by the Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST) - whose strongly-worded statement issued on Wednesday evening criticised both the Gunners and the Football Association.
"We are hugely disappointed by the decision to uphold Arsenal's self-interested and hypocritical near-halving of the 15 per cent ticket allocation that should be provided under FA Cup rules," it read. "The FA must themselves be concerned by this blatant disrespect for their own rule.
"The vibrant atmosphere created by a larger away supporter presence is part of the 'magic of the FA Cup' that is already suffering as a result of other decisions including televising and www sbobet888 rescheduling matches - although ironically 11,000 United supporters were willing to meet the resulting travel challenge and now more than half will be denied the opportunity."
