Cardiff City are reporting that on Friday afternoon 15,000 play off final ticket had been sold.

After scenes of bedlam on Thursday the situation had calmed on Friday with the news that Season Ticket holders and Members could buy their tickets all weekend.

At times the queue had completely disappeared, a welcome breather for staff manning the windows in the ticket office. Telesales were busy all day but waiting times were severely reduced.

With 9,000 ST holders and members allowed to buy 2 tickets each there is a maximum 18,000 tickets to be sold before ticket office opens it's doors to another 20,000+ fans on the clubs database on Monday morning, all eligable for two tickets each.

If the remaining 15,800 tickets are not taken by registered fans then they will go on general sale. It's unknown if there will be any left but if there are I imagine it will be at least Wednesday before they would go on sale.
