Manchester City have sold old their allocated tickets for the FA Community Shield despite planned boycotts.
Blues have raised an incredible £10k for local charity through the MCFC Fans Foodbank Support group.
City fans came together in defiance of the FA and their scheduling to have the game rescheduled. Following discussions, the game was moved from 5:30pm to 4pm Sunday 6th August.
However, this compromise was seen as unacceptable to many who have continued to protest.
Nevertheless, the game has sold out. Manchester City have sold all 31,500 tickets. Albeit a large portion of the sales went to members rather than season ticket holders.
Simon Bajkowski confirmed the sell out earlier today via the MEN.
Manchester based football club ManCity who’s fans are currently boycotting the Community Shield have now SOLD OUT their allocation for the same.
London based club Arsenal still struggling to sell theirs.
Being loud on twitter doesn’t turn into tickets.

The Blues will face Premier League 22/23 runners up Arsenal in the friendly. After Manchester City pipped the Gunners to the Premier League title, they will look to take their revenge.
Arteta will have a point to prove after massive investments in his squad this summer.
