OFFICIALS at Wembley Stadium have apologised for getting Middlesbrough’s name wrong on the tickets.

A misprint saw the town spelt “Middlesborough”, with an incorrect extra “o” on tickets for their game against Norwich City on Bank Holiday Monday.

The play-off match has often been described as sport’s most lucrative one-off, given the Premier League riches that go to the winner.

A Wembley Stadium spokesman apologised, saying: “It was a human error. These tickets will still be valid for Monday’s game.

“We hope that it does not detract from what will be an excellent game.”
