In fact, all tickets were sold in just under two hours after we increased our online capacity and opened 50 telephone lines to deal with demand.
We are aware that the sheer demand and volume of simultaneous transactions meant that some fans experienced difficulties with the online payment processing system - an issue that also affected some telephone callers. We can only apologise for any disappointment fans may have encountered in attempting to purchase tickets and any inconvenience caused by the high demand for this match.
Thank you for your continued support.
As predicted, tickets for our home match against Arsenal sold out in extra quick time this morning.
