“Watching Leicester means so much to me. I shake, I’m in bits on match days.”
Adie Wheat has watched Leicester City since 1968. He has a club membership and said he hasn’t missed a home game all season.
But on Saturday 7 May he will watch the game that could potentially see his side lift the Premier League trophy on television.
Tickets for the match against Everton sold out in a matter of minutes.
Mr Wheat said he is upset some tickets for the game against Roberto Martinez’s side are now being resold for large sums.
He’s not alone.
Other fans have expressed “disgust”, “frustration” and “disappointment” at missing out on tickets, only to see some reappear on ticket resale sites for way over their face value.
With 23,000 season ticket holders and more than 3,000 tickets handed to away fans at Leicester City’s 32,000-capacity King Power Stadium, around 6,000 tickets are available via the club’s various membership schemes on a match-by-match basis.
The first choice of seats is offered to Family Fox and Gold Fox members who, respectively, pay £100 and £75 per season for priority access to tickets.
Tickets are then offered to lower level Silver Fox and City Fox members.
Chris Hubbard, from Market Bosworth, failed to get tickets despite having a Silver Fox membership.
“It’s just disgusting” Mr Hubbard told BBC Radio Leicester.
“We go and watch night games, we went when they were two tiers down, it’s just gutting that proper fans can’t afford these prices to go and watch the last game.
“You just feel like you’ve been robbed, you pay for the privilege to have this ticket and then not even have the chance.
“Then you see them online for those stupid prices, it’s just gut wrenching.”
