Carling to hand over tickets to fans
Carling are set to hand their entire contracted ticket allocation for the Carling Cup final to fans.
In a first for a competition sponsor, Carling will place almost 900 match
tickets - many including hospitality - in the hands of Manchester United and
Wigan supporters in a bid to ensure as many fans as possible get to see the
showpiece final at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium.
Carling Cup sponsorship manager Richard Smith said: 'It's the fans who
support their team week in, week out who deserve to be here more than most, so
we are doing everything we can to make sure all of our tickets and hospitality
end up in their hands.'
