SAINTS will fulfil their dream of playing at the Millennium Stadium on Thursday.
But the 72,500-capacity showpiece arena in Cardiff will be about one ninth full for the visit of Manchester City in the UEFA Cup.
Only the tunnel side of the stadium and a small part beyond are expected to be open for this qualifying round match.
TNS supporters will be well out-numbered. In the wake of the 5-0 defeat from the first leg, TNS have sold about 2,000 tickets compared to City's 6,000.
TNS director Richard Hann claims that because of an arrangement with the stadium authorities, the club will not be out of pocket.
He refused to go into details but praised City for their help in organising matters. "They have been very hospitable," he said.
However, Hann has hit back at former City manager John Bond, who claimed it was disgraceful that TNS were representing Wales in Europe ahead of Cardiff, Wrexham and Swansea.
Hann said: "It just demonstrates how out of touch John Bond is with football today.
"We are an ambitious club and have the earned the right to qualify for Europe through the Welsh league."
