Arsene Wenger has aired his concerns about the way the FA has allocated tickets for the FA Cup final for both the Arsenal and Hull City fans.

Wenger has expressed his concerns about the ticket allocation system and believes that it will take away something from the atmosphere that a cup final at Wembley should have.

"I don't know well enough the rules but, before, I think one of the charms of the FA Cup final was always that the stadium was really divided in two [sets of fans]", the Frenchman told the club’s official site.

"It's a shame that it doesn't happen anymore because that was always an absolutely fantastic atmosphere.”


Wenger believes that the way tickets are allocated for big finals in the modern era never allows the fans to create an atmosphere inside the stadium as the support remains very divided.

“I remember I've been at European Championship finals of the nations and World Cup finals and always there's a little bit of a lack of atmosphere because it's so divided. I think the atmosphere will lose a little bit."

Arsenal take on Hull City in the FA Cup final on 17th May at Wembley Stadium.
