WIGAN Athletic have received an allocation of 22,807 tickets for their FA Cup semi-final against Arsenal.

The FA has confirmed ticket costs for the game at Wembley on April 12, which will have a 5pm kick-off.

Prices range from £30 to £60, the same as last season, depending on the area of the stadium in which fans are sat.

Once again, Wigan supporters will be in the East side of the stadium, where they were for the FA Cup semi-final, final and Community Shield in 2013.

Latics’ allocation has been mutually agreed between the club and the FA and is based on their supporter numbers at last season’s matches.

Wigan’s allocation will be split as follows:

Category 1 - £60 – 2,545

Category 2 - £50 – 9,809

Category 3 - £40 – 6,509

Category 4 - £30 – 3,944

Wheelchair Spaces – 77

Tickets, which will have a £10 discount for OAPs and under-16s, will go on sale next Friday to corporate customers before being released to season ticket holders on Sunday, March 23 (no internet or telephone sales on this day).

Should any tickets remain they will go on sale from Wednesday March 26.
