HUNDREDS of Swansea city fans queued through the night to secure their tickets for the Capital One Cup final.

Supporters camped in the Liberty Stadium to guarantee their tickets for the big match against Bradford City.

According to officials at the ground, around 800 dedicated fans turned out to get their hands on the tickets for the big match on February 24.

One fan, Martin Northy of Penlan, said: "It's a very special occasion. I was here at 5.30pm last night, it was cold and windy but it was worth it.

    Attended Barnsley/Middlesbro games with the kids in half empty stadium and very cold, no season ticket no wembley ticket, why didn't they do a voucher system for cup games, same old Swans, well I have learned something now in future I will sit at home and watch cup/premier games on the internet in the warmth of my living room, shame THE SUPPORTERS TRUST (seat on the board ?)have not spoken up about the way we sell tickets, then again i will save a few quid from my family membership next season, SOUR grapes, yes we all want a chance to be there

    Nice to See Fans getting into the Spirit but where were all these Loyal Supporters at the Barnsley cup game, There was a shortfall of 11,000+ tickets. Support the club through thick and thin not just at a Major Final.

    Some people would rather have their tickets in their hands though cant you accept that? If you won the lottery would you post your ticket to the head office or take it in person?

    It took less than an hour to log on and buy our tickets online, I'm not knocking the dedication but why queue overnight in this weather? I do accept not everyone is online, but still!!
