After putting them on sale today, UEFA have confirmed the two 2018 Champions League finalists will receive a grand total of just 17,000 tickets each.
The Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev, where the final is due to take place, seats 63,000 people which means that UEFA have set aside a mere.
As such, a further 6,700 tickets will be put on general sale for members of the public, with the remaining 22,300 tickets (roughly a third of the stadium capacity) will be allocated to “UEFA, the local organising committee and national associations” — i.e, the corporate hospitality brigade.
As per UEFA.com, final tickets will start at €70 at Category 4 level (the peasant seats up in the nosebleeds) and then jump up to €160 (Category 3), €320 (Category 2) and top out at a exorbitant €450 for Category 1 seats – which is presumably somewhere in one of the dugouts.
That said, UEFA take care to mention that delivery costs are included in all ticket pricing bands.
Finally, a victory for the little man.
