Latest ticket sales revealed by Crawley and Crewe for 2024 League Two Playoff Final

The latest ticket sales have been revealed by Crawley Town and Crewe Alexandra for this weekend’s 2024 League Two Playoff Final.

Crawley Town and Crewe Alexandra will battle for promotion to League One at Wembley on Sunday afternoon, following goal-filled victories in the League Two playoff semi-finals.

Scott Lindsey’s team triumphed over MK Dons 8-1 over two legs to secure their spot in the highly anticipated final, whereas the Railwaymen came from 2-0 down after first leg to beat Doncaster Rovers in a tense penalty shootout following a 2-2 aggregate draw after extra time.

Crawley Town are allocated an initial allocation of 19,556 tickets for the West End of Wembley Stadium, with the maximum allocation being 38,676 if required. It is said they had sold around 17,000 tickets by the end of the week.

Crewe Alexandra was allocated 38,693 tickets for the East End of Wembley Stadium. Following advice from the EFL, tickets will be sold from North Stand round to the South Stand. Crewe last announced that they had sold nearly 12,000 tickets.

Odds to win League Two playoff final:
Crawley- 8/15
Crewe – 11/8


Scott Lindsey spoke, as per The Argus, in days leading up to the game. His last visit was a successful playoff with Forest Green in 2017.

Lindsey said: “It was a really good memory. My wife, who since passed away, was in the crowd. I’m not an emotional person, I really struggle with that. But I will probably look in that area where I know she was sitting. I am so focussed on the game but I am sure there will be some emotions at the end when it is all done, no matter what the result.”

Lindsey adds he was hoping to see Crawley cheered on by more than 20,000 fans – and they were heading towards that number by the end of the week.

He added: “Even at what we are now, it is an incredible effort. The fans have been fantastic all season and I am really pleased we are rewarding them with a great day out and let’s hope we are celebrating at the end of it. Let’s get them all on board. It really is a special place, this. We have got some great lads here and the fans are unreal. Be part of that.”


Mickey Demetriou said Crewe Alexandra players will give ‘everything they can’ to send supporters home from Wembley happy on Sunday.

Demetriou said: “We are doing it for them and ourselves. The most important thing is that we are doing it for them to enjoy.

“Regardless of how it goes, we owe them everything for this season, the away support has been brilliant and the home support has been brilliant as well. We will give it everything we can for them.”

Defender Lewis Billington said: “We enjoyed the celebrations after reaching the Final but it is full focus on the game now.

“If I look at the bigger picture it’s probably a bit daunting so I’m taking it day by day. We’ve all dreamt of walking out at Wembley so there are nerves, but it’s mostly excitement.”

Pre-match stats

– Crewe Alexandra are unbeaten in each of their last seven games against Crawley Town (W6 D1), all of which have come in League Two. Indeed, the Railwaymen won both meetings this term (1-0 at home, 4-2 away).

– Having lost both league meetings with Crewe this season, Crawley could become just the fourth side in the fourth tier this century to lose both league games but get promoted in the play-off final against the same side after Cheltenham Town in 2006, Dagenham and Redbridge in 2010 and Morecombe in 2021.

– Crawley are looking to become the first side since Coventry City in 2018 to earn promotion in their first ever time in the Football League play-offs, while Crewe have won each of their last two appearances in the play-off finals in 1997 in the third tier and 2012 in League Two.

– Crawley’s eight goals across their play-off semi-final against MK Dons is the most by a side in their first two games in the Football League play-offs. Indeed, the only sides with more goals during their first ever year in the play-offs are Walsall in 1988 (11) and Dagenham and Redbridge in 2010 (10).

This is how fans are reacting on Twitter amid the latest ticket sales revealed by Crawley and Crewe for the 2024 League Two Playoff Final…

@peterbellamy: The number keeps rising! 👏🏻 @crawleytown #TownTeamTogether@SkyBetLeagueTwo @efl #EFLPlayOffs

@MitchMoylan: Not letting a 1pm kick off ruin Sunday. Come the fuck on.

@Thecrawleyzone: Wow, amazing support as always 👏 #TownTeamTogether🔴

@Kearns_Richard_: Fantastic for a little tinpot club nobody loves. Roll on Sunday?

@gregmgaffney: Amazing effort, we can still get to 20,000! And tickets just pinged into in box, this is REAL! 🏆

@LardyArmy: Always loved trains.

@1985Pete: I’ll take that. Have it on a bank holiday weekend as it used to be or a better KO time so fans can actually get there and back and we will take what we did the last 2 times.

@crewealex7: That’s a superb effort – relatively small town surrounded by the North West giants on their final fixture – 5th Wembley visit – keep pushing Railwaymen 👏👏♥️🤍

@blue_moonalex: Brilliant effort considering lack of trains on a Sunday from where we are. Can’t wait for a great day out. See you there.

@jonathanandgill: The kick off time doesn’t favour everyone and not on a Bank Holiday. Guess staffing costs will be lower as middle tier won’t need to be open with the small number of tickets sold.

@SlinkyRo: Great effort considering the distance, day & kick off time! 🙌🏽🙌🏽 UTA ❤️❤️⚽️

@CTFC_JP: Great effort 👏

@cmcdownie: 🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂🚂
