Hundreds of Man City fans stuck outside Wembley with tickets not scanning and miss kick-off for Liverpool FA Cup clash

HUNDREDS of Manchester City supporters were left stuck outside Wembley and missed the kick-off of the FA Cup clash with Liverpool due to a ticketing error.

The Cityzens were facing the Reds in the controversial semi-final this afternoon at the national stadium.


But loads of them were left fuming outside after being held up getting into the ground.

And hundreds were left angry as the game began and they were still stuck due to their tickets not working.

One of the individuals affected told Sun Sport: "We’re stuck in a queue of hundreds of angry people with the game kicking off in two minutes. Our tickets are not working."

It only adds to the fury of supporters on being made to head to Wembley from the north for the game.

The FA stuck to their guns over the location.

And in a desperate bid to get fans to the ground, they chartered 100 buses to take roughly 5,000 fans from the north-west to London.
