NEWPORT County AFC fans have been scrambling to get to Wembley after the club’s allocation of tickets for Monday’s League Two play-off final went on general sale.

The Exiles have been allocated 4,021 for the clash with Morecambe that will see the winners earn promotion to League One.

The club operated a priority window from Monday until Wednesday morning before around 2,000 tickets went on general sale through Ticketmaster.

That has led to a surge of interest online by the members of the Amber Army who had not been able to commit to a season ticket purchase in the pandemic.

South Wales Argus:

A number have reported problems navigating Ticketmaster's online system while others were given the message that tickets were sold out, only for more to then appear.

Morecambe have 3,949 tickets for the final with measures in place to ensure supporters of the two clubs are segregated.

"Any tickets that appear to be purchased by supporters of the opposing club will be investigated and potentially cancelled without a refund," read a County statement.

"Please note, the club will be working closely with our ticketing provider to check purchaser details."

The attendance is capped at 10,000 in line with current coronavirus restrictions in England. The FA Cup final at Wembley was played in front of 20,000 fans but that was a test event.

It will be a second game of the season that County will have backing from the stands after the Welsh Government selected the semi-final against Forest Green Rovers as a pilot event.

That led to a 900-strong crowd at Rodney Parade with the club holding a ballot for their 1,100 season ticket holders.

Monday's fixture is County’s fifth trip to Wembley in recent times following the 2012 FA Trophy defeat to York, the 2013 Conference play-off final win against Wrexham, 2018 FA Cup replay loss to Tottenham (after the demolition of White Hart Lane) and 2019 League Two play-off final anguish against Tranmere.
