UEFA Reveal Champions League Final Ticket Allocation And Prices, Fans Aren't Happy

UEFA has come under fire from fans after confirming the ticket prices and allocation for the Champions League final in Paris.

Liverpool and Manchester City are through to the last four of the competition along with Spanish clubs Villarreal and Real Madrid.

The final will take place at the Stade de France on May 28, after being moved from the Gazprom Arena in Saint Petersburg following Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

It has now been confirmed that a total of 52,000 tickets will be made available for fans to purchase out of the Stade de France's capacity of 75,000.

The remaining 23,000 tickets are set to be given to national associations, commercial partners, broadcasters, and UEFA's official hospitality programme.

Of the 52,000 allocation for supporters, 40,000 will be split equally between the two clubs in the final.

The remaining 12,000 tickets will be offered to fans worldwide.

UEFA has confirmed that of the 20,000 allocation for each club, 10,000 tickets will be given away for free 'to reward the lifeblood of the game for their loyal support during the pandemic'.

The price categories for tickets for the general public are as follows: Category 4: €70 (£58), Category 3: €180 (£149), Category 2: €490 (£406), Category 1: €690 (£572).

Accessibility tickets for disabled spectators are available for €70 (£58).

Tickets are being sold through a ballot system on UEFA's website from 1pm (GMT) on Wednesday until 1pm (GMT) on Thursday, April 28.

UEFA has faced criticism from fans over both the price of tickets and the allocation for the two clubs involved.

"35,000 seats for people that quite literally could not care less what happens," wrote one fan on Twitter.

Another added: "Thank you UEFA, during the pandemic it was we miss the fans, it’s all about the fans, this proves it’s not."

City host Real Madrid in the first leg of their semi-final on Tuesday, while Villarreal travel to face Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday.
