Manchester United had sold all of their tickets for the game (2,994), however due to policing issues, they are only permitted to sell 2,370 tickets as per the safety certificate provided by Hammersmith and Fulham Council for the altered kickoff time.

The Hammersmith and Fulham Council has received a letter from the solicitors for the Manchester United Supporters’ Trust (MUST), who are now threatening legal action.

“Tickets had been sold for this game and fans are being treated like second-class citizens,” said a MUST spokesman. “For a Supporters Trust to engage lawyers is always a last resortr, but enough is enough.”

The fixture between Chelsea and Manchester United is classified as “high risk” by the Metropolitan Police and, as a result, it should kick off before 4.45pm.

There would not have been any problems if the game had been played at the scheduled time and date because that is the agreed-upon cut-off time for London clubs on weekends for safety reasons.

When issuing the safety certificate, a compromise had to be made due to the match being shifted to Saturday night for television considerations.

Following an appeal, the number of seats for United increased from the original 1,500 to 2,370.

However, MUST feels that they should be granted the entire away quota and has threatened to sue the Hammersmith and Fulham Council.

The following was said in a letter from attorneys to Hammersmith and Fulham Council: “We write to request you promptly issue a fresh safety certificate for the above game with allowance for the entire ticket allotment of 3,000 MUFC supporters.

“The decision is challenged on the basis that there is no rational reason to reduce the ticket allocation for away fans at a 5.30pm kickoff when it is accepted that there would be a full ticket allocation at a fixture beginning no later than 4.45pm.

“If we do not receive a reply to this letter from you by the above deadline for response, or if you confirm that you refuse to reverse your decision, then we reserve the right to commence judicial review proceedings against you without further notice.”
