Wembley Boycott Appeal

An appeal to Supporters of Manchester Utd

The Wembley Boycott is a campaign aimed at raising awareness of the level of disgust felt by Manchester Utd supporters over the following aspects of the 2007 'showcase` Wembley FA Cup Final:

- the pathetic 25,000 ticket allocation to supporters of the two participating teams;
- the miniscule allocation of just 4,000 tickets priced at 35 for both sets of supporters;
- the extortionate cost of the other allocated tickets, priced 60, 80 and 95;
- the fact that the arrangements for the Club Wembley area will deny those seated there the right to fully participate in supporting their team;
- the outrageous price of the programme, the merchandise and the refreshments.

Whilst some supporters will, should they have been fortunate enough to receive a ticket, be likely to purchase a matchday programme - itself overpriced - we urge all attending to boycott the other official Wembley merchandise and, in particular, the official Wembley refreshment outlets.

It appears to us that the FA is making the ordinary football supporter pay in hard cash for what was the farce that took place over the budgeting, planning and completion of the new Wembley Stadium. It is clear that those responsible for recouping the massive overspend in the Wembley budget are hoping to claw back as much as they can from those attending football matches at the stadium.

At least 21,000 supporters from both sides will have been forced to pay a minimum of 60 for their tickets. Don`t let those running the FA and Wembley take a penny more from you.

Don`t stuff yourselves
STUFF THE FA!

It's ALL wrong, the FA should not make the common, hard working, decent fan have to risk financial ruin (which many EASILY could!) to show their support. Why should fans pay the price for the FA's balls up with this stadium. Football, and the FA and Premier League get enough out of us as it is.

As for you current poll guys (I know where you are coming from) I don't think EITHER should get a medal if they haven't played enough games, I've already explained why I feel this in your article on the subject (with the picture of Alan Smith) so won't do so again here.

The Fa are acting like a bunch of Facists, all tickets should go to the fans not some fat suited dicks who would rather check how there shares are doing. The FA are nothing without the fans and its about time they appreciated that fact. ****!!
