The club also sent out a clear message to fans that anyone caught selling their tickets will face harsh punishments, including a potential lifetime ban.
This comes after a big increase in the number of fans being scammed by people selling fake tickets online.
UEFA faced backlash from fans after allocating Liverpool just 19,618 tickets out of the 75,000 available for the match in the Stade de France. Despite being the lucky few who managed to secure a ticket to a huge European final, some ticket holders couldn’t resist temptations of reselling in order to generate a massive profit on the price they originally paid for the ticket.
Some Champions League final tickets are reportedly selling online starting at £1700.
Liverpool have now reacted in a bid to put a stop to people trying to flock their tickets online.
Liverpool said in a statement: “The club has now called on social media companies to close more than 50 social media accounts and groups it believes are actively involved in selling, or offering to sell, Champions League final tickets online.”
“Liverpool FC will not stand idly by and watch people try to sell tickets they have been fortunate enough to get access to via the ballot.”
“All reports of ticket touting, or online ticket fraud, will be investigated in line with the LFC sanctions process. If a supporter has been found to have offered a ticket for sale online, this could result in a lifetime ban for that individual.”

“The club is also encouraging supporters to be diligent when providing any personal or payment details to persons they do not know.
“Liverpool FC continues to work closely with Merseyside Police and, where possible, will pass on the details of any supporters who have offered a ticket for sale online.”
The charity, Level Playing Field has written to UEFA demanding answers to why only 14% of the 550 wheelchair user spaces at the Stade de France had been offered to disabled supporters.
They have asked UEFA to clarify that the remaining 86% of seats haven't been offered to media or sponsors without disabilities.
In their letter they said: "We call on Uefa to review their wheelchair allocation and provide more accessible wheelchair user space to the fans who make the Champions League final special."
