MAN UTD COULD GET TICKET BOOST
Manchester United's ticket allocation for their final Barclays Premier League game at Sunderland could be increased.
United were upset three weeks ago to learn they had only been given 1,700 tickets for the fixture, on which the title could rest, on the advice of the Safety Advisory Group.
Under Premier League rules, United are entitled to 3,000 tickets but that number has been cut in recent seasons due to persistent standing at the Stadium of Light by the clubs' supporters and other issues, such as blocking gangways.
United did make their fears known and were invited to a meeting to discuss the matter with Sunderland counterparts but did not turn up, hence their allocation being reduced once more.
However, Press Association Sport understands there has been further dialogue on the matter and while a final decision has not been reached it could be that United may be given additional seats for the game on May 13.
