The recent FA Cup final between Leicester City and Chelsea was played in front of 22,000 fans as part of a test event, but only 10,000 supporters are permitted to attend the play-off finals.

Earlier today, Lincoln's chief executive Liam Scully issued an open letter to address concerns about the low ticket allocation.
