Generous Locals Offer Liverpool Fans Accommodation For Champions League Final

Generous Locals Offer Liverpool Fans Accommodation For Champions League Final

With extortionate ticket prices and sky-high hotels, fans going to the Champions League final will have to fork out some serious cash for the trip to Kiev

However, generous locals in the Ukrainian capital are attempting to make it easier and cheaper for Reds' fans, with a growing number of residents offering free accommodation.

As per the Liverpool Echo, some fans were being quoted £2000 a night on popular sites such as AirBNB and Booking.com - which is utterly outrageous and completely unaffordable.

That has prompted Victor Kylymar, a 27-year old who works at Kiev University, to set up a Facebook Group along with his friends - the aim being to house as many Liverpool and Real Madrid fans as possible.

"Three days ago we were searching Facebook and a lot of Ukrainian friends were sharing screenshots of AirBNB and Booking.com, showing horrible conditions of accommodation which is available in Kiev for an unbelievable price," he told the Liverpool Echo.

"You can rent a whole building for months, but they want to charge for one night.

"Kiev is a big city, there are three million people living here. We thought that it wouldn't be a problem for the tourists to be hosted in flats and we thought that people could even do this for free."

Kylymar thought Facebook would the best platform to spread the word and the group is already gathering pace, with nearly 1000 members despite it only being set up three days ago.

It's a brilliant scheme and one that supporters should definitely look into in order to save a bit of cash.

Liverpool have been given an allocation of just over 16,000 for their first Champions League final in 11 years, with the cheapest non-restricted view tickets priced at £61.
