    right guys - i've got a predicament. i want to go to the fa cup final more than i want to see the birth of my first child. i've done touts before for gigs, but never football matches.

    1) do they exist for matches?
    2) if so how legit would you say they were?
    3) how much do you think i would be looking at online

    no season ticket so obviously wasnt going to get one the traditional way whatever happened.

    any help here would be grand. don't want to travel 3 hours down to london to be disappointed but times running out to book everything up if i do

    Yes.

    And anywhere between £500 and £1000.

    Usually for many big games you can get lucky with genuine fans letting tickets go at face value but even fans who cant make the Cup final will unload it to one of their mates before you'd get a sniff so you're going to have to buy one of some guy called 'Frankie' in the carpark of the Dog and Duck for 2 weeks wages.

    Search on Twitter to see if anyone is selling one, good place to look for tickets

    tbh a face value ticket for this on Twitter that hasn't been snapped up by a friend is going to be like finding rocking horse ****.

    I got some! I paid a bit more than intended it was a bit dear but its worth checkin out social media like twitter to see who's sellin regularly rather than deal with a tout IMO

    If you use something like StubHub, be prepared to be royally shafted. At least that was my experience several times this season.
