Arsenal Fans Furious As Emirates Giveaway FA Cup Semi-Final Tickets to Customers

Arsenal supporters have been left furious by the club’s sponsors Emirates, after the airline company guaranteed FA Cup semi-final tickets to customers with over 15,000 air miles.

The Gunners are chasing their only hope of silverware this season when they take on Manchester City at Wembley next month, but despite the national stadium holding almost 100,000, the north London side have only been allocated a little over 32,000 briefs.

As well as sponsoring Arsene Wenger’s side, Emirates are also the title sponsor of the FA Cup and have allowed customers to redeem their air miles for both semi-finals and the final.

Only Arsenal members who are part of the 2016/17 away scheme or platinum and gold members who have attended three or more away games for the last two seasons are guaranteed a ticket for the heavyweight clash against Pep Guardiola’s star-studded side.

But, if you have enough air miles, you can get inside Wembley without much fuss.

What do you think of the scheme? Is it unfair for fans?
