Reds' General Manager Hits Out At Police

REDS' general manager Don Rowing claims the police has cost the club more than £100,000 after refusing to allow more tickets for Hull City fans.

Saturday's clash at Oakwell saw Hull sell out their 5,750 North Stand allocation but had an appeal for an additional 1,500 tickets in the West Stand turned down by the police.

Sky TV offered £80,000 to air the match, which could have seen Hull promoted to the Premier League. However, the police wouldn’t allow the 5.20pm kick-off.

Mr Rowing said the club has missed out on more than £20,000 in ticket sales.

A police spokesman said it would have been 'unsafe' to have Hull City fans on two sides of the ground.

Football policing costs the council tax payer enough as it is without additional costs on a Saturday night. More money for the club whilst we fork out more to cover it? No thanks. Right decision.

The club will get billed for policing aswell. And it doesn't say on my council tax bill owt for policing the football. They should have allowed to happen and let barnsley get sum revenue it wudnt have hurt owt.
