Liverpool has received 35,500 requests for tickets for the Champions League final against Real Madrid, which will be played on May 28 in Paris.
According to the club, 29.5 percent of the fans who have asked for a ticket will get it and that is that 63% of the 19,600 that UEFA has given to the English club will go to general fans. In addition, an additional 21% will go to those fans with priority and who have a season ticket in the VIP area.
The media and families of the first-team players will take 14% of the tickets, while Liverpool’s commercial partners will receive the remaining 2%.
UEFA distributed 19,600 tickets to each team and kept 35,000. The Stade de France, venue for the final, has a capacity for around 75,000 spectators. This was criticized by Jürgen Klopp, manager of the English, who asked himself: «Where do the UEFA tickets go?».
The lucky Liverpool fans who get a ticket will receive the news this Thursday and will be able to buy their tickets from Monday 16 May.
