West Ham's allocation for this weekend's play-off Final sold out this morning as the last available tickets were snapped up.

The few remaining tickets that went on General Sale this morning were all accounted for within 20 minutes of the 9:00am start time.

Reports that just 500 tickets in total were on sale would appear to be wide of the mark however, with a spokesperson for SeeTickets telling KUMB.com last night that around four times that number went to General Sale this morning.

Additionally, a number of supporters were able to purchase tickets in the areas behind the goal in the West Ham end.

As expected, SeeTickets' website was inundated by supporters hoping to take advantage of today's sale.

However with West Ham's allocation set at just under 39,000, many thousands of supporters have been left disappointed.

Meanwhile Blackpool are understood to have several thousand tickets still available despite their allocation being on general sale since last Friday.

Some West Ham supporters have reported success in buying tickets in the opposition end - an inevitable conclusion given that both sides were given the same allocation, despite the much higher demand from West Ham United fans.

''Disgusted with West Ham. I'm a loyal supporter for over 30 years and I had three people from 8.59am today ringing for tickets. It was only after 15 mins did they turn on the phones, most of the tickets went online. So thanks West Ham, after all these years of supporting you you pull a stunt like this. Poke the Olympic Stadium, I won't be going, I'd rather watch it on TV (i twill be a lot closer). Re-develop the Boleyn I say and get rid of those money-making shysters.''

''It's nice to see I have been rewarded for spending about 2,000 following West Ham over the course of the last two seasons by not being able to get a play-off Final ticket. Ridiculous allocation percentages to both clubs, should have been 70-30 to West Ham.''
