United face Hamilton Academical over two legs, starting on Thursday evening, with this morning’s die-hards determined to get their hands on tickets for the decider on Sunday.
The doors of the club shop opened at 8am, but the club confirmed the entire allocation had been sold by 11am.

Thursday night’s first leg at Tannadice has already seen a huge response, with the club opening up the famous “Shed” stand as the normal home allocation also heads towards a complete sell-out.
United received 2689 tickets for the second leg, and demand was always going to outstrip supply. It is thought the first fans started queuing at around 2am.
United claimed their place in the Premiership play-off final by coming from behind to beat Falkirk 2-1 on Friday night to secure a 4-3 aggregate victory.
The result means the Tangerines are two games away from returning to the Premiership after the disappointment of relegation 12 months ago.
