Sunderland released phase two of their tickets for the EFL Trophy final against Portsmouth this morning.
The Black Cats are heading to their first Wembley final since 2014 in a couple of weeks from now and have to move around 40,000 tickets ahead of the event.
Lewis Morgan and Will Grigg scored the goals against Bristol Rovers that has secured their place to face Kenny Jackett’s side, a precursor to the two clubs clashing in the penultimate match of a frantic League One promotion race.
Some tickets went on sale at 10am this morning, but already there’s been some concern on Twitter. The system the club are using to sell seems to be flawed, with fans piling on to social media to express their concern.
Despite it ‘only’ being the EFL Trophy, it’s sure to be a huge day in Sunderland’s history, a glorious chance to get some silverware in their trophy cabinet and give fans something to cheer after years of misery.
If these fans are to be believed, it might not be entirely straightforward for them to get to London at all.

Ridiculous not being able to buy the amount of tickets as per your sales history. How the hell are kids supposed to have a customer number???

Waited in the que for nearly an hour when I got to the front I’m refreshed and sent me straight to the back

It seems to have completely stopped going forward as well. But I’m too scared to refresh
