England coach Jurgen Klopp has questioned whether nearly half of the Champions League final tickets against Real Madrid will not go to fans of both clubs.
Klopp’s team faces the Spanish giants on May 28, and 19,618 tickets are reserved for its fans.
This is 26.1% of the capacity of the 75,000 spectators at the Paris Stadium where the final will take place.
German coach Jrgen Klopp said: “We only got 20,000 seats, they (Real Madrid) got 20,000, is it true that there are 75,000 seats? There are still 35,000 tickets. Where are these tickets?”
Of the remaining 35,000 tickets, UEFA sells 12,000 tickets to fans around the world, but the sale window closed on April 28, just days before Liverpool and Real Madrid fans knew their team was in the final.
The remaining 23,000 tickets will be distributed to national associations, business associates, broadcasters and UEFA’s official hospitality programs.
Hospitality tickets are available for purchase until Thursday, with prices ranging from € 4,900 to 8,900 on the UEFA website.
“Go without a ticket”
19,618 tickets for Liverpool range in price from £ 50.32 to 578.63. About 21% of their allotment, about 4,000 tickets cost 410.91 or more.
Liverpool supporters, who call themselves the Shangley Spirit League, said fans were tired of the “robbery”.
In an open letter to UEFA, they said: “In the face of a failed Premier League, UEFA President Alexander Seferin told the clubs: I do not understand how you see your fans’ opposition, you do not care. You have a lot. You have money, you’re not poor but you’re more. We need more. “
They added: “Well, Mr Seferin, Liverpool fans are protesting. You do not seem to care. UEFA is not poor, but you want more.”
Liverpool have officially advised fans not to travel without tickets, but Globe said Paris would be “bigger” if fans did so.
Germany have faced criticism in the past when they encouraged fans to travel to Basel to create a festive atmosphere for their first season at the club in the Europa League final.
“Tickets are so expensive, and I can’t be more appreciative or grateful for what people are doing,” Globe added.
“I hope they can all buy and build its memory in some way, and of course they will create a better environment.”
“If you do not have a ticket, I do not want to invite people to Paris, but this time it is enough. Last time I did it in Basel, Switzerland, it was great,” Klopp said.
“But I think Paris is big enough to go there without a ticket and have good time and respect but in the best mood.”
