Wembley Stadium have apologised to Middlesbrough for the misspelt play-off final tickets that Boro fans have received, the BBC reports.
An extra ‘o’ was added to Middlesbrough’s name and was printed ‘Middlesborough’ on the tickets for the bank holiday Monday showdown against Norwich City.
The blunder was revealed this morning, with Wembley admitting it had got it wrong due to ‘human error’ but it will not affect any of the tickets for the play-off final.
A statement on Boro’s website said, “An error has been made on the Championship Play-Off Final 2015 tickets, with Middlesbrough spelt incorrectly,” said a statement on Middlesbrough’s website today.
“Wembley Stadium would like to apologise to Middlesbrough Football Club and its fans for this mistake, it was a human error. These tickets will still be valid for Monday’s game.
“We hope that it does not detract from what will be an excellent game and we encourage fans looking for further information on the fixture to visit www.wembleystadium.com.”
BeanBagSports were one of many supporters to comment on Wembley’s mishap, thankfully for the famous stadium, most have taken a light-hearted approach on their responses.
Around 17,000 Boro tickets for the play-off final were sold as they went on general sale yesterday but were was suspended while the club investigated issues that led to complaints from some fans.
At least one ticket was reportedly cancelled after the club identified that a Norwich fan was attempting to buy a ticket within the Boro location.
