Coventry City and Oxford United have sold over 52,500 tickets for their EFL Trophy Final clash at Wembley next month according to the latest figures released by both clubs.

The Sky Bet League One pair meet under the famous arch on Sunday 2 April with the match kicking off at 2.30pm.

It has been reported that there has been huge demand for tickets for the match from supporters of both clubs with Coventry City having sold 32,500 tickets while Oxford United have sold in excess of 20,000 tickets for the clash.

With just over three weeks to go until the big day, those impressive ticket sales could continue to increase with the attendance expected to exceed the 59,230 recorded at last season’s EFL Trophy Final.

After a dismal season in Sky Bet League One which is likely to see Coventry City relegated, The Sky Blues find themselves at Wembley for the first time in 30 years with the EFL Trophy providing the club with one bright point during several years of financial turmoil at The Ricoh Arena.

Opponents Oxford United are appearing in their second consecutive EFL Trophy Final after the club were defeated 3-2 by Barnsley in last season’s showpiece event.

The record attendance for an EFL Trophy Final is 80,841 which was recorded way back in 1988 when Wolverhampton Wanderers defeated Burnley 2-0 at Wembley.
