Wigan Athletic have reportedly sold just 5,500 tickets for the Community Shield against Manchester United at Wembley this Sunday.

Wigan Athletic have reportedly sold just 5,500 tickets for their Community Shield clash against Manchester United this weekend.

Wembley will welcome the Premier League champions and FA Cup winners this Sunday, but the newly-demoted Championship outfit are struggling to sell their ticket allocation.

It is understood that the Latics turned down 15,000 tickets from the Football Association, instead opting for 7,500, but are currently 2,000 shy of selling out, according to the Daily Mail.

United are said to have sold out of their original 38,000 ticket allocation.
