UEFA have announced that 30,000 free tickets will be given to fans for the final of this season’s Champions League and other club competitions.

It has been described by the governing body as a ‘gesture to reward the lifeblood of the game for their loyal support during the pandemic’.

There will be 10,000 free tickets available for the Champions League final in Saint Petersburg, with 5,000 to each club. UEFA is also making 6,000 free tickets available for the Women’s Champions League final in Turin – 3,000 to each club.

Each club competing in the Europa League final in Sevilla will be given 4,000 free tickets (8,000 in total) to hand out to fans. There will be another 6,000 free tickets for the first ever Europa Conference League final, again 3,000 to each club.

As a further gesture to fans, UEFA has said that category three and category four ticket prices for the men’s Champions League final will be frozen until 2024 at €180 and €70 respectively.

“Football fans are the lifeblood of the game and we thought it would be a nice way to recognise the difficulties they have experienced over the last two years and how they nevertheless still managed to support their teams and live their passion even when away from the stadiums,” UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin said.

“Fans are playing an integral part in the development of football, and we must ensure that loyal travelling supporters can attend historical moments for their cherished teams at affordable prices.”
