THE race for tickets for the Capital One Cup final at Wembley is threatening to turn sour for some Swans supporters.
While each and every member of the Jack Army would no doubt like to book their place at the February 24 final, the club is faced with a straight forward problem of mathematics - an allocation of just 31,000 tickets and an unprecedented demand.
With around 16,000 season tickets holders on their books, if the club gave them just two each all tickets would be gone before others even had the chance to think about adding their support on one of the biggest days in the Swans' history to date.
Swans supporter Steve Crabb said: "Terribly disappointed by Swansea City FC's decision on tickets for Wembley. As an exile there's no point me having a home season ticket, but as loyal supporters and Jack Army members many of us were there at Crawley, we were there at Stamford Bridge - but it seems we won't be there at Wembley."
The club said it would release a statement this afternoon.
