Liverpool and Tottenham fans have requested the sponsors to return some of their Champions League final tickets for the travelling supporters.
Both the clubs have been allocated 16,613 tickets each for the all-English showdown to take place in Madrid on June 1 at the Wanda Metropolitano, with a capacity of almost 68,000.
About 22,300 tickets have been made available to the local organising committee, UEFA and national associations, commercial partners and broadcasters, and also to serve the corporate hospitality programme.
Liverpool group Spirit of Shankly (SOS) and the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters’ Trust (THST) have
urged the sponsors to give some of the tickets allocated to them to the fans who are will miss out.
“As major sponsors of the UEFA Champions League, your companies appreciate the passion and dedication of the fans who follow their teams and make every game a spectacle.
“But many of those fans who have followed their club throughout this season will miss out on the biggest game of all. As will thousands more loyal supporters.
“SOS and THST believe such a gesture by the sponsors would help lift the occasion by increasing the number of passionate fans inside the stadium and increase each brand’s standing on a global scale.
“We also ask that each sponsor lobbies UEFA to allocate tickets for future finals on a fairer, more equitable spilt that has supporters benefit.”
There is a huge outburst among the fans of Liverpool and Tottenham due to the uneven distribution of the tickets as the fans have been allocated fewer tickets while the majority of tickets going to the UEFA’s sponsors and travelling partners.
The fans will be expecting that UEFA will take their request into notice and provide more tickets for the fans to watch the finals in Madrid.
