Raheem Sterling is paying for 550 kids

The Daily Mail have revealed that Raheem Sterling is paying for 550 kids to go Saturday’s match at Wembley.

Sterling has paid for tickets and transport for the kids, who all attend his former primary school.

The Daily Mail report:

Sources have told Sportsmail that in a joint operation with the club England man Sterling, 24, will meet pupils from Ark Elvin Academy in Wembley at City’s training complex on Thursday after they travel north from London.

Then on Saturday, they will make the short journey to the stadium for the big match.

Man City’s ticket sales vs Brighton

While the Sterling story is obviously a credit to the footballer, Man City have failed to sell out their ticket allocation for the Brighton match.

Man City, like all four semifinalists, were given 25,000 tickets for the match.

So far the Sky Blues have returned 2,000 tickets to the FA, with a further 3,000 remaining unsold.
