CL Final Ticket Details

UEFA have instructed Liverpool to release ticket details for the Champions League final even before the semi-final has taken place.

Due to concerns over the processing of visa applications, European football's governing body have told all four semi-finalists to seek ticket requests from fans for the final in Moscow on May 21.

 

Manchester United have already made their ticket information available to their supporters and both Chelsea and Barcelona are expected to announce their plans over the coming days.

 

"The tickets have got to go on sale now because of UEFA visa requirements," said Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry.

 

"UEFA has insisted that we provide them with details the day after the second leg of the semi-final in order to process visas.

 

"There is no alternative for us but to start now, however uncomfortable we might feel.

 

"This is not the way we would prefer to do it because we do feel uncomfortable about it but we have no choice."

 

Liverpool have been advised they will be allocated 21,000 tickets if they progress to the final and requests for an increased number have already been rejected by UEFA.

 

Having been heavily criticised for the way tickets were distributed ahead of the Athens final last season, Liverpool have taken on board fans' concerns this time around.

 

Parry added: "All season ticket and fan card holders who have been to six Champions League games will definitely qualify for a ticket.

 

"And all season ticket holders who have been to five games are invited to apply for a ticket.

 

"If there is a 100% take up, which there very rarely is, season ticket holders who have been to five games will have an 80% chance of getting a ticket, which is a massive improvement on last year.

 

"The two things that distinguish this time around from last year after taking into account the concerns of fans are that we have given priority to season ticket holders who have been to five games and we have introduced the extra step of seeking applications from fans because of the extra time that this situation has afforded us.

 

"Once we have received the applications they will not be taken first come first served because that would be unfair. Instead, we will have a random process.

 

"Having weighed up all the options and the concerns that fans had last year we feel that the system we have come up with is the best and fairest way of distributing tickets.

 

"But, as ever, it is unlikely that we will be able to satisfy everyone because of the allocation of tickets from UEFA."

I think I remember reading that someone on here saw the bus designed for our post-Athens parade, with the 6 stars.

 

Still not over Athens!

 

Been emailed that picture by a couple of bluenoses

Does the six games include Chelsea? Surely more than 21,000 have been to all 6 homes?

Ah I never saw a picture. I don't want to see that bus unless its the day after Moscow and Stevie and the lads are on it with the Champions League trophy.

I know the timing of the allocation of final tickets is relatively minor and the deadline is after the second leg but wouldn't it be great if we could actually take the lead in something for a change?

 

The last time I can remember us showing others the way in off field matters was putting sponsors on our shirts.

 

Lethargic and unprofessional are two words that spring to mind when thinking about our offfield activities.

UEFA has informed the semi finalists that due to all supporters travelling to Moscow having to be in possession of a valid visa the Clubs have been instructed to announce the selling arrangements in advance of their team possibly reaching the Champions League Final.

Does the six games include Chelsea? Surely more than 21,000 have been to all 6 homes?

 

Six games doesn't include Chelsea so basically you'll need at least one away game on your fancard to guarantee a ticket.

 

It doesn't feel right talking about tickets for a final when the semi final is still to be played but I've been to every CL home game since 2004, didn't get drawn in the ballot last year for Athens and as they've weighted it more favourably for season ticket holders this time round (probably only fair to be honest), I won't even qualify for the ballot.

 

Not all bad though, got a cracking spec in the Kop for the Chelsea first leg :)

Has anyone read the actual details?

 

http://www.liverpoolfc.tv/news/drilldown/N...080417-1130.htm

Tickets linked to passports and visas, and not transferrable.

 

What concerns me is that both of our season tickets are in my dads name

Surely they won't be a******s about that?

I presume they mean what ever names you apply under is the name that goes on the ticket

Looks to me that in order to get a ticket you need to supply a qualifying fan card number and a passport number and the name and address.

 

They'll use the passport number, name and address to issue a visa

Now added:

 

Supporters should note the qualifier against Toulouse and the forthcoming semi-final against Chelsea do not count as qualifying games for the final.

 

So you need at least one away game to be 100% certain of a cup final ticket.
