Hull fans slated for empty seats as their team win promotion in Wembley play-off final


On the pitch, it was Hull who won out as they beat Sheffield Wednesday in the final of the Championship play-off - but in the stands it was a different story.

The Wednesday end was packed as Owls fans watched their side slip to a 1-0 defeat thanks to Mohamed Diame's second-half strike, but there were rows and rows of empty seats among the City support.

Where were they all?

At least those who were there had made an effort.

The army of Wednesday fans were making themselves heard in the stadium as well as on social media.

But it was all for nothing as Diame scored an absolute cracker after 72 minutes to send Steve Bruce's men back into the Premier League.

Not everyone thought the empty seats spoke badly of the City fans.

And of course, a trip to Wembley isn't exactly cheap.

And in the end, it doesn't really matter how many fans were in the stands.

Welcome back to the Premier League, Hull.
