Wednesday have confirmed that they won’t be sending back the 3,000 allocation sent for the Sheffield derby at Bramall Lane and have released ticket details for the clash.

Some Owls fans were angry that the red and white side of the City had only given Wednesday fans the lower tier of the Bramall Lane end – just 3,000 tickets – despite usually getting both tiers of the stand.

But Wednesday have today released ticket details for the clash, including beam back details to Hillsborough when all tickets for the derby match have been sold out.

A statement on the official Owls site reads: ‘SWFC has listened to our supporters, and have agreed with Sheffield United that if all the tickets for the seats at Bramall Lane allocated to Sheffield Wednesday are sold we can arrange to ‘Beam Back’ the match to Hillsborough giving more Owls supporters the opportunity to watch the game.

‘Under Football League rules a Beam Back cannot take place unless and until all of the tickets for the away supporters are sold out, therefore this cannot be confirmed until the away ticket allocation has been exhausted.

‘We have already sourced the equipment needed to put the Beam Back event on, but cannot finalise this arrangement until the away ticket allocation is sold out.’

Tickets for the match at Bramall Lane will go on sale to season ticket holders on Monday, January 19, with members able to pick tickets up from Wednesday, January 21.

General sale will take place on Friday, January 23, with Owls MasterCard holders able to pick them up, if remaining, a day earlier on Thursday, January 22.
