Wrexham Supporters' Trust regrets to inform fans who applied for Wales v England tickets that our application for tickets has been turned down by the FAW due to over subscription.
'Dear Wales Fan,
Wales v England Tickets
It is with great regret that I write to inform you that the FAW has advised us
that our ticket application for the forthcoming Wales v England match on March 26 has been turned down due to the game being over subscribed.
We registered for the FAW's `kick-back scheme' in early January and received 250 applications. We rang the FAW Ticket Office to submit our application for on January 25th, ahead of the original deadline of Jan 31st, but were advised to continue to sell tickets as the deadline had been extended due to low sales.
During the course of that conversation, we were directed to the FAW's Finance Department for details of how to make a BACS payment and were advised not to pay for an interim ticket order, but to submit our full application and payment in full at a later date.
We then put out another call for fans to buy tickets and sold 316 in total. Two days prior to the revised closing date of February 18th we contacted the FAW as agreed but, to our surprise, were informed that the game was sold out. We have since attempted on a number of occasions to put our case to the FAW, but without success.
We are deeply sorry to bring this news to you. I know that the Board members involved have asked the FAW for understanding, but the recent news that 1500 additional tickets had to be returned due to an administrative error has not helped our cause.
I again offer our sincere apologies for the disappointment this will cause you
and I enclose a cheque as a refund for your match tickets and any coach
payments. Payments made via PayPal have automatically been refunded back to your card.
Peter Jones (WST Vice Chairman)'
