Fans unhappy as UEFA reveal Champions League final prices

Fans have been left annoyed by UEFA's Champions League ticket prices and allocation for the final in June, which is set to be in Turkey.

It's hoped it will be third time lucky this summer for the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul, which is due to host Europe's biggest annual football event.

There is some questions over the possibility of 'political unrest' in the country, which could come after next month's presidential election, and may mean a change in venue.

But right now there are four clubs battling out for a chance to be in the 'Gateway to Asia' on June 10th, for the chance to be crowned champions of Europe.

One of the Milan sides is guaranteed to be in the final, wherever it is, after Inter and AC both won in midweek to set up a repeat of the 2003 semis and 2005 quarters.

That second game saw the iconic picture of Marco Materazzi and Rui Costa having a calm chat as chaos ensued around them at the San Siro.

Either Real Madrid or Manchester City will join the winners of the Milan derby, after both made it through with relative ease, against Chelsea and Bayern Munich respectively.

Fans will obviously be pumped if their team makes it but they're less enthusiastic about the prices, and number of tickets, that are up for grabs.

As per UEFA.com, tickets in category four start at a reasonable €70 but skyrocket up to €690 for the category one seats.

"You'd think that after last years shambles in Paris, UEFA would be looking to put on a good front," said one fan, referencing the horrific scenes at last year's final.

"Not even worth getting wound up about anymore. They don't want the working man anywhere near live action anymore. They just want legacy fans watching on PPVTV at home or in pub," added a second.

On how many tickets actually go to the fans, a third noted, "55% of tickets going to fans of the clubs is once again scandalous."

Adding to the same theme, another replied, "I'd expect to get a game for 700€! What a disgrace."

"Absolute skulduggery, sham of a game now, no wonder I'm turning away from the game, bet I'll have plenty of company too," posted a fifth.

And summing it up perfectly, another supporter simply exclaimed, "Holy shit that's expensive."
