Ticket details announced for the Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final
Tickets for the Sky Bet League One Play-Off Final at Wembley will go on-sale to ALL SUPPORTERS on Wednesday 16th May at 8am.
The game will take place on Sunday 27th May with a 3pm kick-off against either Rotherham United or Scunthorpe United, who play their second-leg on Wednesday evening.
The tickets will once again be available through Ticketmaster, either online or over the phone, with our ticket office open to help with purchases.
The tickets will go on-sale until Friday 25th May giving you nine days to secure your seat at the national stadium.
Shrewsbury Town fans will be situated in the East side of Wembley with prices starting from £30 for Adults, £22.50 for Young Adults (17-21) and £15 for Concessions (Ages 60+ and 2-16), with a wide range of other price categories available. All children under the age of 2 are free.
The dedicated family section will be allocated in blocks 105-108 with the singing section situated in blocks 111-113.
CEO Brian Caldwell spoke to ShrewsWeb to explain the ticket details for the big day.
“We’re only going to have roughly 10 days to sell over 20,000 tickets”, said Brian.
“Hopefully we get more than we did at the Checkatrade because obviously there’s a bigger prize at stake, but I’m sure everybody that’s a Shrewsbury fan will want to be at Wembley.
“That being said, I can’t really see any other option than to do the same as we did for the Checkatrade (using Ticketmaster).
“In an ideal world we would like to sell them, but with only 10 days to sell 20,000+ tickets and our ticket office with only four windows and the phone-line going constantly, it’s difficult.
“You only have to look at the last couple of weeks, selling 7,000 home tickets for the Charlton game, and I’ve had a quite few emails of complaint about not being able to get through on the phone-line and there being a queue, so to sell three times that in 10 days is hard work.
“In the main, Ticketmaster worked well for the Checkatrade. Yes there were some issues, but you’re always going to have some bits and bobs whether we do it here or through Ticketmaster.
“The advice from Wembley and the advice from the EFL is ‘don’t do it yourself’, so I think we have to take that on the chin and I genuinely thought it worked well last time.
“I think the majority that bought over the phone for the Checkatrade Final found it a seamless process and the majority found it seamless as well when they were buying online.
“Whatever way you go you are going to get criticised. My opinion is that if we did it through the ticket office we would get more criticism than what we would do if we did it this way.
“We will of course still have staff here at the club for those who don’t have the internet or don’t fancy phoning up, so we are here to help and hopefully we can get as many people to Wembley as possible.”
Full details on prices, hospitality packages, parking and travel will follow in due course.
