Play-off tickets had been eaten by a dog

A football fan was dreadfully shocked when the three tickets for his club’s Championship play-off final had been eaten by Freddie, his little puppy.

A football fan was dreadfully shocked when the three tickets for his club’s Championship play-off final had been eaten by Freddie, his little puppy.

Matt Grimmer, a 41-year-old Norwich City fan from Bradwell, England, discovered that his tickets for Monday’s game against Middlesbrough at Wembley were damaged by a dog. He said that the barcode which is used to pass through the gates was totally disfigured.

The ticket were kept in what he thought would be a safe place, but he had mistaken. Two-year-old Freddie has a very acute sense of smell, so he, as a typical dog, decided to chew up the tickets from the first moment he smelled the fresh paint.

He’s full of life and energy and if he sees something he’ll go for it and have a play and obviously he saw the tickets and the rest is history.

– said the dog’s owner.

Later he also joked that Freddie was born in Norfolk but not Suffolk, so he obviously couldn’t be a fan of rivals Ipswich Town.

However, when the information about the accident had spread through the web, Mr Grimmer had his tickets reprinted for him and two his sons by the Norwich City.

So now the football fan could attend the game and see whether his team is able to reach the Premier League.

Mr Grimmer together with his family and Freddie are preparing for the Championship play-off final on Monday, while all the tickets have been safely hidden.

The tickets disasters have occurred with Canaries fans earlier this year, when Mikey Knights’ mother coocked 16 tickets he had bought for a match at Brighton by accident.
