CHIEF executive Andy Ambler has defended Millwall's ticketing policy for the club's FA Cup semi-final against Wigan at Wembley after criticism from some fans.
The Lions' 6,000-plus season ticket holders will be entitled to purchase a maximum of three tickets for the match on April 13 but members have been told they may only be able to buy one.
Some supporters fear those arrangements will leave them ticketless – or at the very least, unable to sit with friends and family inside the stadium.
But Ambler told NewsAtDen: "We will see how much of our allocation is left after we've been on sale for a week in terms of how many tickets members can buy.
"Not all season ticket holders will buy three but some will – so we are expecting between 18,000 and 20,000 to be bought by them. There should be 10,000-plus left for members.
"For example, if there are 14,000 tickets left, we would say two per member. If there are 9,000 left, it will be one per member. It will come down to the maths.
"Membership does not guarantee you tickets but it looks like we should have enough to satisfy the demand. But at the end of the day, people who bought season tickets deserve to be given priority.
"This is the fairest way we think of making sure people get tickets for Wembley."
Millwall have been given a total allocation of 31,514 in the West Stand but were told by the Football Association on Monday that there is no prospect of that being increased.
Ambler added: "This is the FA Cup, not a Football League play-off final, therefore the flexibility is not the same as it has been in the past. 31,514 is our allocation and sadly it won't go up.
"That's just something we have to be mindful of. It's the same with Club Wembley – whereas before we've had an allocation for that area, those seats are licensed and sold by the FA."
