When the draw was made for the Semi-finals, Barnsley were drawn out first to play Cardiff. Thus Barnsley were the ‘home’ team.

As we know, WBA were drawn next, making them home team against us.

Though our match was first up, TV dictates this; we had the away end, as did Cardiff.

So now the final. Who is home & who is away?

Are Cardiff home because they were drawn first, thus having first choice on home kits & ends or do we toss a coin & there we have it?

  • My questions have been answered by PFC offical website. We have the same, same dressing rooms & we are in our home blue as Cardiff are sticking with their ‘lucky’ black kit. We have just under 25,000 tickets. How the the tickets will be sold ‘madness’ will be advised on Monday.

  • oh god, im pleased im nt deciding who gets to go to the game! the 15 000 season ticket holders i feel probably should get to go (that wont include me), and then i would just put the rest on sale to people on the pompey database (possibly to those who were on it before a certain time?) – but anything they do will result in uproar from a sector of fans.

  • I think it’s good news that we have the East End again. I wish we’d decided to wear white shorts. I know Gill prefers them dressed that way!! (Sorry Rug, copied from another VP article 🙂 )

  • I am going to be interested to see how many of the spare 40,000 tickets come back on sale. Except to the fans of the clubs I am sure that not that many people are actually bothered by either team so either there will be even more empty seats than before or a lot will be sold back to Wembley to be distributed to the clubs.

  • i agree dave just posted a simular comment on the article above this. Hey Ho its not every day we moan about our kit in an FA Cup Final

  • Good point Graham we should not complain if we were playing in red and white stripes…………….but then again!
