That's the rules. All a club is required to offer as a minimum, is 5%..

Article 38 Ticketing
38.01 Home clubs must make at least 5% of the total approved UEFA capacity of their stadium available exclusively to visiting supporters, in a segregated, safe area. In addition, visiting clubs are entitled to purchase 200 top-category tickets for their VIP supporters, sponsors, etc., but they are not obliged to take the full allocation (see Articles 16 and 23 of the UEFA Stadium Infrastructure Regulations and Article 19 of the UEFA Safety and Security Regulations).

I gathered that was the rule, I just thought that there would be 10%, just my expectation. I bet we give them more...

Maybe in the earlier stages, there would've been a greater chance of a bigger allocation. However, we're now at the point where every club is going to attempt to gain any advantage they possibly can.

I understand the frustration of those who are lucky enough to be able to get (or try to get) a ticket. I also understand why every club is probably likely to now give the bare minimum to their opponents.

It sucks, but that's the nature of the beast.

Only one thing for it - kick their asses on the pitch that is. No way will 2700 kick their asses off it.

I can see the logic of the bare minimum, dont want to give any team a helping hand.

We can have a say in who wins the title and have a say in who wins the champions league.
It is fantastic to be involved at the sharp end of the season.
Of course we could always win the champions league ourselves (joke).coys

Leicester, Newcastle and Palace have all beaten City this season. It's unlikely, but not impossible.

The home leg will actually be at home for once. That could prove to be the deciding factor. We really need to win the first leg, then hope to get an away goal.

But will/have the mention teams beat city over 2 legs home and away? I fancy our chances in the home leg but I’m struggling to see us getting past them in the tie

I thought the allocation for CL was even bigger than 10%, as there was talk above moving ST holders in certain comps

FA Cup - 15% unless your arsenal
League cup - 10%
Europe - 5%
Premier league - 3,000 or if the ground holds less than 30k it’s 10%
So we could theoretically have the same number of away fans (3000) in our new stadium, for Premier League matches, as we had at WHL...but 30,000 more home fans.
