Just fyi re club wembley - My brother in law won 2 club Wembley tickets...he sent them to me as he knows I go to CC final every year,(I noticed they were non transferable..um) I passed them to my non RL sister, but proud Warringtonian and she and her eldest daughter got caught up in the pre final excitement and used them. She said very cosy chairs, plenty of spaces, a drunk Rhino, an Aussie who said which team is which and changed to supporting Rhinos in 2nd half "because they need my help more" and a few who were presumably CW members. I thought with an ebay price for similar ticket of 87 (non transferable?) that something more would be included like food/drink. Food like hot dog was available at 7.50 - that unfortunately is the real price they charged and 3.50 for a coke.

I wouuld be interested to hear the views of other Club Wembley attendees?

Club Wembley looked more than half empty at the final, surely if 85,000 were on there must have been more in the bar than in the seats?

Those type of prices apply around the ground, why I eat and drink elsewhere, and why I was really naffed off when the pint of chilled donkey pee they call Lager at a fiver a pint got knocked over, maybe by me, dunno, when I went for a slash.
Wouldn't buy another though.Feckin fiver, I only asked for 1.... ohmy.gif
I suspect you'd need to quadruple the ticket price to get a decent option included package, like a programme, drink, and a decent bit of scran....

I got Club Wembley seats behind the posts at the Leeds end, just in front of the big screen, from my wife's work. Padded seats are nice, as are the drink holders and leg room. Because the area isn't full there are no queues for the bar, toilets or food shops, though it cost 7.50ish for a pie and a pint. Free program with the ticket, which was nice cos I got the ticket for free. I saw Brian Carney back there as I was walking around, and there was a Champagne and Seafood bar for those who could afford it.

Pretty good overall, but there is less atmosphere as the seats around us were not all taken and the seats that were taken were mainly neutrals (like me). I really enjoyed the day and would definitely use them again if possible, but if Wigan get to the final I will have bought tickets anyway.

Pie and a pint was 8.30 in the 'cheap' seats, so you got a good deal.

Club Wembley tickets aren't for sale to third parties, only to overseas buyers.

There are still some Club Wembley debentures available. Haven't completely sold out yet - so the Club Wembley site said last Thursday.

Club Wembley was OK but had I been a Wire or Leeds fan I would have prefered to have been down in the crowds.
Was surprised to see a lot of the Wire players WAGS up there just before the presentation. Thought they would have had special seats? About 15 minutes before the end the stewards stand in the aisles to stop people from moving into the empty seats along side the presentation area. The WAGS managed to persuade the stewards to let them through, hence Morley and Westwoods family got up to the edge.
This world was never meant for one as beautiful as me.

We had club Wembley tickets. there was 4 people on each end of the row and no one between. it was nice to hear a lot of Non league fans saying it was their first game choosing a side to support to make it more interesting. a fair few tickets seem to have been comps and there was a few well know faces doted around such as parky. you could wander down to the dug outs before the match to see what was happening and we had the privilege of seeing the cup come back down passed us. you could see the tears on seniors face and the euphoria on briers face. i couldn't say though that if i had paid for that seat it would be worth the money each year. plus posh people still fight over spilt beer. kat. p.s sorry about lack of paragraphs Etc not too good on the phone yet
