wembley1Wrexham end FA Trophy Final Tickets will ONLY be available to purchase through the FA.

Following our meeting with FA officials at Wembley this week, we have decided to sell all tickets via the Football Association website and telephone hotline, as this will offer a quicker and more efficient service to our supporters. Booking via the FA will not impact our share of gate receipts, as this is divided as per the competition rules.

We would like to emphasise that the order of sale of tickets is governed by the FAs policy that sections be sold in an anti-clockwise direction at the Western End of the ground to minimise the financial implications of opening up separate sections of the stadium, should the bottom bowl not be sold out. This would also apply if tickets had been sold through the club.

We understand the frustrations of some supporters but, as we would not receive any physical tickets until the middle of next week, we currently do not have the infrastructure to support the distribution of 15,000+ match tickets within a three week window. This would be in addition to issuing tickets for another three home games scheduled within this period, plus all the Wembley coach travel, hospitality and merchandising which we hope to be dealing with anyway.

From speaking with the Football Association today, we can confirm that we are fast approaching the sale of 5,000 tickets, which is fantastic news and is already guaranteeing tremendous support for the team on the big day, and further demonstrates the efficiency of the Football Association's ticketing operations.

Full details of accessing the FA website / hotline are later in this article or you can click here.

If any supporter is having genuine issues using either of these options, then the club will look to assist in other ways.

Merchandise for the event has now been designed and sourced, and will be available through the Club Shop, online and local outlets within the next 7 days. This will include a diverse range of Official one-off Wembley products and leisure wear to commemorate the occasion.

Official outlets will be confirmed shortly through the club website. May we urge everyone buying memorabilia for the event, to buy directly through the football club to ensure that all proceeds are returned to the club. Please avoid buying items from unofficial agents and rogue traders, and we would be grateful if you could notify us of any such activity.

Wembley Match Day Hospitality

Hospitality packages will be available to purchase from the Commercial Department at the Racecourse in the lead up to the event.

Situated in the upper level of the Bobby Moore Room, these comprise of a premium match ticket, buffet lunch, inclusive beer, wine and soft drinks pre match and at half time, plus a cash bar for one hour post match, and a match day programme.

The cost of £129 (inc vat) per individual represents fantastic value for money and with ONLY 150 places available, we expect these to sell out very quickly.

All packages MUST be reserved before 11 March 2013. So please contact Steve Cook directly on 07921 371 766 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to secure your places.

Accommodation Packages

Following a visit to Wembley, we have spoken to a number of local companies and will shortly be announcing our Official Travel and Accommodation package providers.  These details will be published on the website within the next 7 days and will cater for those looking to spend a little more time in London around the big match.
