Officials at Wembley Stadium have apologised for getting one of the Championship play-off teams wrong on the tickets.

A misprint saw Middlesbrough spelt "Middlesborough", with an incorrect extra 'o' on tickets for their game against Norwich City on Bank Holiday Monday.

The play-off match has often been described as sport's most lucrative one-off, given the Premier League riches that go to the winner.

A Wembley Stadium spokesman apologised, saying: "It was a human error".
