Bees and Carlisle United fans snapping up their seats

More than 30,000 tickets have already been snapped up for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final between Brentford and Carlisle United, in a huge boost for the competition.

Brentford’s red and white army of fans have already snapped up their allocation of 20,000 tickets in a show of strength for the trophy, while Carlisle United fans have broke the 10,000 barrier.

Last season’s final between Southampton and Carlisle United attracted 73,476 fans – the highest in Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final history, while 55,378 and 56,618 saw the 2009 and 2008 finals respectively.

Johnstone’s Paint Trophy’s sponsorship manager Teresa Hardwick said: “To see Brentford’s allocation of tickets sell out within days of going on release is wonderful news for us and the trophy as a whole.

“Meanwhile, Carlisle United’s fans have again done us proud, shifting more than 10,000 seats in around a week of the tickets going on sale.

“We were hoping to see around 20,000 Brentford fans at the final, but the fact that their quota of seats have already been sold suggests we can look forward to way more than our original estimate.”
