Wembley Stadium bosses have apologised to Norwich City's rivals in the Championship Play-Off Final, after spelling the club's name incorrectly on their tickets.

An extra o was added to Middlesbrough's name - so it was printed Middlesborough on the tickets for the bank holiday Monday showdown.

A statement on the Teesside club's website stated: 'An error has been made on the Championship Play-Off Final 2015 tickets, with Middlesbrough spelt incorrectly.

'Wembley Stadium would like to apologise to Middlesbrough Football Club and its fans for this mistake, it was a human error. These tickets will still be valid for Monday's game.

'We hope that it does not detract from what will be an excellent game'.
