Their opposition, Villa, have sold 36,288 which is just under 2,000 less than Derby.
That is because the allocation Derby have received is from unsold Club Wembley seats on the East side of Wembley.
Due to the high demand for Villa tickets, ALL seats on the West Side have already sold out well in advance.
They will, therefore, not be receiving any more tickets.

The game, which will kick off at 3pm, will be broadcast live on Sky Sports. Sky Bet also display the latest odds at 8/13 for Villa and 7/5 for Derby.
Ahead of the game, Frank Lampard’s Derby (sorry, we couldn’t help ourselves) has said: “We were 1-0 down against Leeds, I said to the lads everyone had written us off. It was 1/8 for them to go through or something, everyone says they’ve beaten us three times, but we made a little tweak, and it worked brilliantly but you need bravery on the ball and the lads showed it.
“There’s work to do, this isn’t the end, we’re underdogs again and we’ll have a tough game against a brilliant Villa team, but we’re there.”
Villa’s Dean Smith also says: “Everybody knows the rewards by going and doing it [getting promoted] and it’s going to be tough because they are a good team. Albion put up a really good defensive performance over the two games, made it difficult and that’s why it ended up going to penalties.”
