Tony applied for a ticket back in March, and was notified that his application had been successful following a random draw prior to the completion of the quarter-finals in April.
The 8 teams in contention at that time included the likes of Manchester United, Turkey's Besiktas and Germany's Schalke. The subsequent games were closely followed, with the excitement building anticipating that Mourinho's men would make the final as they were being touted as favourites. United knocked out Anderlecht, from Brussels, after extra time to be drawn against Spain's Celta Vigo in the semi-final.
A glaring miss by Celta's ex-Man City striker, John Guidetti in the second leg cleared United's path to the final. Had the Swede found the net with the last kick of the tie United would have been eliminated and Celta would be facing the young guns of Ajax Amsterdam in the final.
In the other semi-final tie Ajax looked home and dry after a 4-1 win at home in the first leg, but Lyon made a fight of it in the second leg eventually losing 4-5 on aggregate.
The final is to be played at the 50,000 capacity Friends Arena in the Solna district of Stockholm. Tickets will be at a premium as United have reportedly been allocated a mere 9,500 tickets. Clearly, the black market is likely to be rife as both sets of fans barter for tickets.
A report of the trip to the final will be 'published' on this website in due course with copious amounts of imagery.
