Swansea City have sold out of their allocation of Wembley tickets, the club confirmed this afternoon.More than 33,000 tickets for the Capital One Cup clash against Bradford have been snapped up by supporters keen to be a part of history.

The club said it will start posting the precious tickets to fans who bought online or through the call centre on Wednesday next week — and all will be sent by Special Delivery which will require a signature.The tickets will be sent in the date order they were bought.

In a statement posted on the club's website this afternoon, the Swans said: "Swansea City can confirm the club's allocation for the Capital One Cup Final has now sold out."Remaining tickets were purchased today by Jack Army members who are not season ticket holders, with the club set to take more than 33,000 supporters to the final against Bradford City at Wembley on Sunday, February 24."

The club added that any supporters who have not received their tickets by Thursday, February 21, should immediately contact the Liberty Stadium ticket office.

The Swans take on Bradford City in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday, February 24, with silverware and a place in Europe up for grabs.

    Only bitter fans on here are the ones that want to get to wembley and have NOT been given a chance the way tickets were sold, not all can afford seaon tickets and the club make more money with cash on the day, Shame we cannot sell out for QPR, Super-Swan why don't season ticket holders take a loved one (he or she) to the game and explain not only the off side rule but what colour the Swans play in. ENJOY WEMBLEY YOU LUCKY SWANS FANS (AND HANGERS ON) I'm so bitter I am going to chew a lemon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So season ticket holders cant take a loved one to a momentus occassion? Why aren't u a season ticket holder? what has the club done wrong? stop slating the club, some indiviuals who are tight may sell their ticket but the majority will share the experience with some deserving....I will say tho, cant understand by there is 30k seats unaccounted for...commercials and sponsors just like the olympics, trust me loyal fans get down there and there'll be a seat available to you...for those sponsors that thought they'd be watching Man Utd v Chelsea aint gona show

    Oh well that that then. The killer is I bought my travel tickets the night swans qualified the final thinking I would get a ticket in a stadium that holds 90k as I was prepared to queue for as long as it took, pity then I did not anticiptate the cogs of corruption that would prevent me from even doing that. the club could have kept 500 or so back and gave them out to fans who were prepared to queue. Instead they just give them all away to those who fell for their financial trappings. I also advertised on a for sale website asking if someone could get me a ticket if I pay, today I was contacted by someone from the BBC regarding doing an interview for their Xray program regarding the allocation of the tickets and my findings. I will be telling them exactly what I think. a) Swansea city as a club have let down many fans by allowing season ticket holders to buy two tickets, many of which have gone on the black market. b) I will be telling them that despite the stadium holding 90k, there are still over 27,000 seats held back for neither club. I will also be telling them I intend on sneaking into the stadium and if I get caught, I don't care because I will use the exposure to highlight the sheer joke regarding the whole thing. From my clubs willingness to give EVERY season ticket holder up to 2 tickets, to the capital one cup that has stolen over 27,000 seats that fans, many of whom have waited a lifetime to see something like this will miss out on.

    It is old news that season ticket holders were buying extra tickets last year to sell at inflated prices, the comment above indicates that it is still happening, and it seems the lub is happy for them to do it. Having followed the swans since the 70s in crowds of 3k -4k, I have only seen 1 game since promotion and quite frankly am sickened by the attitude of the club to long term fans. Membership of the supporters trust counts for absolutely nothing. I also will not be setting foot in the Liberty again. Where are all the revered season ticket holders + 1 for the home game with QPR Saturday? Obviously that game is not good enough for them!!!

    BEEN OFFERED A £40 TICKET FOR £120 from a season ticket holder who said in his words "will pay for his day out" was going to report him for being a tout BUT the people that should be reported are the Swansea City Board members. I refused to pay and will cheer the Swans on the box and will not set foot in the Liberty again while we have a board and SO CALLED SUPPORTERS TRUST running OUR club
