Following today’s memorable victory against AFC Bournemouth will now take part in the Sky Bet Championship Play-Off Final on Saturday 29 May. The match will kick-off at 3pm and we will find out our opponents, either Swansea City or Barnsley, this evening. The Bees came from a goal down to win 3-1 this afternoon. Ivan Toney scored his 32nd of the season before Vitaly Janelt levelled it up in the second half. Marcus Forss sent The Bees to Wembley with a late winner.
We know our fans will all be eagerly awaiting details of ticketing arrangements for the Final. We have been in regular communication with the authorities and the EFL to find ways to maximise the Club’s allocation for the Final. However, in line with the Government’s current Covid-19 restrictions, Wembley will have a maximum 10,000 capacity for this match. This means there will be fewer than 4,000 General Admission tickets allocated to each team.
We want all Bees fans to be at the Final and it is disappointing that many of you who would want to be there, will not be able to attend. We have been working with BIAS and Bees United to finalise our ticketing approach to the Final and we will confirm these arrangements with you tomorrow afternoon.
Until then, many thanks for your patience, enjoy today’s win and the part our fans played in it. Come on you Bees!
