European quarter final + £5 tickets = Chaos

Who could have predicted it?
TICKET sales to non-Seasoncard holders for the Hamburg UEFA Cup second leg on April 16 are temporarily suspended as Blues fans have rushed to snap up our £5 a head and a kid for a quid special "thank you" offer today.

There have been unprecedented scenes at the City Store in the Arndale Centre as well as the City of Manchester Stadium Box Office, where the queue stretched into the stadium itself as stewards endeavoured to protect our fans from the worst of the inclement weather....

Executive chairman Garry Cook said: "We are delighted by the response, which has been absolutely magnificent even by the standards of our loyal supporters. The phone lines were jammed and the ticketing website was simply inundated. We would like to thank them all for their patience, not forgetting our ticketing staff who have worked tirelessly to keep things running as smoothly as possible."

I've got mine. And my inflatable banana.

About time. I've always maintained that City should charge whatever it takes to fill the stadium, dropping prices until it's sold out. We seasoncard holders who have already paid up for league games can be mollified with even cheaper tickets for cup games and other rewards. Well done City: at last we'll get the atmosphere we need at European games.
