Chelsea and Manchester United fans have joined forces to slam the FA over ticket prices for next month’s Emirate Cup Final.

The Football Association has revealed that the most expensive seats at Wembley showdown on May 19 will cost £145, more than 80 percent up on the prices for last weekend’s two semi-finals encounter.

Both Premier League clubs supporters of both clubs took to social media to brand FA chiefs “an absolute disgrace” and “scandalous”.

And Dave Chidgey, chairman of the Chelsea Supporters’ Trust, told SunSport: "This is obscene, absolutely obscene.

 "The FA are profiteering from fans. It’s as simple as that.

“It’s the sort of thing you expect from the Premier League and the clubs, to a degree, but for the FA to charge these prices, when they are supposed to understand the plight of fans, is hard to take.”
