Barcelona and Juventus allocated only 25% of tickets for UEFA Champions League final
Both Barcelona and Juventus will be allocated less than 20,000 tickets each for the UEFA Champions League final
According to a report in Marca, both Barcelona and Juventus will be allocated less than 20,000 tickets each for the UEFA Champions League final to be held at the Olympiastadion in Berlin, Germany. The stadium has a capacity of 74,475 and is famous for playing host to the 2006 World Cup final between France and Italy.
The official number is 19,550 tickets allocated to Barca and Juve. Of these, 13,294 will be allocated to club members while 3,323 will be given to official supporters clubs. The rest of the 35,375 tickets will go to UEFA’s sponsors and partners.
This means that each club will get just a little over 25% of the tickets while the rest will be open to the general public and given to sponsors. Surprisingly, the prices for the tickets are not as expensive as one would expect for a Champions League final.
- Category 1: €390
- Category 2: €280
- Category 3: €160
- Category 4: €70
Barcelona supporters who want tickets will have to fill out a form on the club’s website after which a draw will held on 22 May to pick the lucky winners. Those fans will be contacted by 25 or 26 May.
