More than 50,000 Wembley tickets sold between Bolton and Oxford fans

General sale began on Monday morning for Bolton supporters and the club has confirmed they have now passed 26,000 seats.

Fans were once again thanked for their “outstanding support” and an official message read: “26,000 of you are currently set to roar the lads on at Wembley! Tickets are still flying out with phase three now underway.”

Oxford have also reached the 25,000-mark, with the U’s confirming on their social media channels that 10,000 of those had been snapped up during the first hour of general sale.

It is shaping up to be quite the atmosphere as the clubs battle for the final promotion spot, looking to join Portsmouth and Derby in the Championship next term.

This is the third and final phase of ticket sales for the big game, with season ticket holders and official club members getting priority during the first couple of stages. Anyone who had a registered account from May 7 is now able to book their seats.

There are six separate categories for ticket prices, starting from £31 for adults, £23.25 for 17-21s, and £15.50 for over-65s and under-16s. The highest category is priced at £86 for adults, £64.50 for 17-21s, and £43 for over-65s and under-16s.

The Whites reached the final following a 5-4 aggregate victory against Barnsley, with Dion Charles, Randell Williams, Aaron Collins and Eoin Toal all on target.

Meanwhile, Oxford edged past Peterborough over two legs thanks to goals from Elliott Moore and Cameron Brannagan.

There were around 72,000 supporters in attendance for last year’s play-off final as Sheffield Wednesday edged past Barnsley. Josh Windass scored a dramatic winner in the final stages of extra time when the tie seemed to be heading for penalties.
