FA Forced To Give Away Semifinal Tickets As Wigan Fails To Sell Its Allocation
Published April 12, 2013
STRONG DEFENSE: In London, Simon Stone reported Wigan Manager Roberto Martinez "has defended the club's failure to sell" its entire allocation. Martinez "prefers to focus on the incredible strides made since the club were in the bottom tier of English football following his arrival as a player" in '95. He said, "It's not about the numbers. The numbers need to have a meaning. Back in 1995, when I arrived at the football club, we had gates of 2,000 people. Now we are in the best league in the world, and we are in the semifinal of the best cup competition -- for us to take whatever figure it is represents an incredible percentage of the town" (INDEPENDENT, 4/11).
