Arsenal Football Club is pleased to announce the Football Association has confirmed it will be giving a further limited allocation of tickets to the club for the FA Cup semi-final against Wigan Athletic at Wembley Stadium on Saturday, April 12.

These additional tickets, together with the small number which remain following the initial sale to interested and eligible Platinum and Gold members, will be made available to Silver and Red members.

We will not have sufficient tickets to meet the overwhelming demand from all our Silver and Red members, so this allocation will be offered to those members with the highest attendance in recent years. The calculation will include home and away fixtures attended between August 13, 2011 up to March 25, 2014. This is consistent with the process set for Platinum and Gold members for this match.

Tickets will firstly go on sale to Silver members who have attended 14 or more home and away matches within the indicated timescale. In addition, a number of tickets will be held for Red members, which will be allocated based on their attendance history, again within the indicated timescale.

Silver and Red members who are eligible to apply for tickets will receive an email from the club. This email is not a guarantee of a ticket, but an opportunity to apply for a ticket in a certain booking period on a first-come, first-served basis.

The sale of tickets to Silver members in receipt of an email invitation to apply will commence at 10am on Tuesday, April 1, ending at 8am on Wednesday, April 2, 2014.

Further details of the sale to Red members will be communicated on Arsenal.com at 5pm on Tuesday, April 1.
