THE Jack Army are ready to conquer the home of English football, and they are travelling in numbers.

The Swans confirmed last evening that the entire allocation of tickets for the Capital One League Cup Final have been sold to supporters.

The sell-out means more than 33,000 Jacks will be travelling up the M4 to watch the boys take on Bradford City on Sunday, February 24.

Chairman of the Swans Supporters' club, Phil Sumbler, said: "I didn't think there was any doubt we were going to sell out our allocation.

"It is great the tickets have gone down the line from season ticket holders to Jack Army members.

"I absolutely cannot wait, it is very close to a fulfilment of a dream.

"If you go back 10, 12 years you couldn't imagine we would be in a major cup final with a European place at stake.

"It would have been a pipe dream and in a little over two weeks it is going to be a reality."

The club has announced that batches of tickets will be sent to supporters via special delivery from the middle of the week commencing February 11.

If supporters have not received their tickets by February 21, they are being advised to immediately contact the Liberty Stadium ticket office to alert them to the problem.

Swansea City supporter director Huw Cooze said he felt sympathy with those supporters who were not able to secure tickets for the big match.


He said: "It is good in one way but there are a lot of disappointed fans out there.

"We took 43,000 in 2011 and we are a bigger club now, I am sure if we had a 50,000 allocation, they all would have gone as well. Unfortunately, it is all in the hands of Wembley."

Mr Cooze added: "I am very much looking forward to it.

"The last time we were there it was so nerve-wracking as we had to win.

"Yes, it would be lovely to win this time but I am sure I won't be as nervous as last time.
