Man City vs Brighton

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.
Have to admit I do find it pretty mad that Man City FA Cup semi-final tickets are still available on general sale—and there are quite a lot left. Could be the biggest season in their history

Laura: “City fans say the 5.30pm kick-off makes it hard to get home. That’s a logical argument isn’t it?”
Dean: “No… they were in League One not long ago so enjoy it.”
Dean Saunders says there’s NO excuse for #ManCity not selling all their FA Cup semi tickets 🎟️
