The last time Blackpool were at Wembley, when the played West Ham in the Championship play-off final in 2012, more than 30,000 fans made the trip from the Fylde coast.

In 2010, when Ian Holloway's side clinched promotion to the Premier League with a 3-2 win over Cardiff City, around 37,000 Blackpool fans were in attendance.

But the fans' boycott means that the vast majority of the club's fanbase won't be at the game as they continue their protests against the Oyston family.
