Tickets will go on general sale from 4pm today (30 May).

What have fans said about the prices?

Some fans took to social media to express their anger over the prices.

One fan wrote: “Disgusting prices. People who set these prices are not in touch with reality.

“Should have been £10. Cost me just £20 to watch Pompey v Sunderland at Wembley in the FLT final in 2019.”

Replying to the Solihull Moors official Twitter account which posted the details of the ticket prices, another fan wrote: “Prices are laughable for a non-league play-off final.

“Complete disregard to people’s circumstances and cost of living. I was looking forward to going but no way am I paying that.”

Another said: “Completely tone deaf pricing structure from whoever organised this. What an insult to the fans of both clubs.”
