Wembley tickets sell-out

Wembley_13The first competitive match to be held at the new Wembley sold-out within hours of the tickets going on sale. All 60,000 tickets for an under-21 match between England and Italy on 24 March were snapped up yesterday. The fixture will have the highest even attendance for an under 21 match.

If the restricted capacity match passes without too much bother, the stadium could be given the safety certificate required to host the FA Cup final at full 90,000 capacity. An FA spokesman said: "I think this shows just how much the whole of England is waiting with anticipation for all the games to be held at Wembley." [Via BBC, Rob Parker]
