Wembley Stadium has issued a frank and forthright apology to Middlesbrough fans after noticing they had spelled the club’s name incorrectly on the tickets for this coming Monday’s Championship play-off final.

Middlesbrough are due to play Norwich in the big Premier League promotion blow-out at Wembley but not according to the tickets, tickets that have ‘Middlesborough’ pitted against The Canaries.

One small ‘o’ can make all difference, am I right ladies? Eh? Nudge nudge, wink wink. No? Okay.

Aaaanyway, Wembley have apologised for their mistake after supporters began noticing the error as tickets were mailed out, with the stadium administrators putting it down to “human error”…


A statement from Wembley read:

“An error has been made on the Championship Play-Off Final 2015 tickets, with Middlesbrough spelt incorrectly.”

“Wembley Stadium would like to apologise to Middlesbrough Football Club and its fans for this mistake, it was a human error. These tickets will still be valid for Monday’s game.

“We hope that it does not detract from what will be an excellent game and we encourage fans looking for further information on the fixture to visit.”

We’re willing to forgive them this once, but let’s just hope Nooit Opgeven Altijd Doorgaan Aangenaam Door Vermaak En Nutting Door Ontspanning Combinatie Breda (that’s NAC Breda to you and I) never make it to Wembley.

It’ll be absolute carnage.
