Many fans were left frustrated after seeing some tickets being sold to season ticket holders with fewer points than themselves. 

Tickets are currently unable to purchase on the Sheffield Wednesday website following the suspected glitch. 

Some fans have suggested that the club will refund tickets to anyone who has purchased them today without the required amount of points. 

Nathan tweeted: 'Can't wait for ticket office to either charge me £852 for my United tickets or just cancel them. Useless for most.'

Nicky Rowlinson tweeted: 'Can't believe people are moaning they've had united tickets refunded they didn't qualify for them in the first place jog on #swfc'

Ryan Chadburn tweeted: 'Just rang ticket office. They said anyone with less than 720 points will be refunded today at 4 PM. Even if you qualify for tomorrow morning's batch. #swfc'
