UEFA cuts Champions League final ticket prices

PanARMENIAN.Net - UEFA has cut the price of the cheapest tickets for the Champions League final at Wembley compared with two years ago, pa.press.net reported.

The European governing body is selling 16,800 tickets for Ј60 each - in 2011 the category four tickets were Ј150 plus a Ј26 administration charge.

UEFA president Michel Platini admitted two years ago that the prices were "a mistake" and this year the administration charge will also be reduced to Ј8 within the UK.

Of the 86,000 capacity, 59,000 tickets will be available to fans with each of the finalists receiving 25,000 and 9,000 being sold via uefa.com. There will also be 200 youth packages for 200 children to each be accompanied by an adult, also priced at Ј60 per person.

The remainder of the tickets will be at higher price categories ranging from Ј140 to Ј330. The other 27,000 tickets not on sale will be distributed to European associations, sponsors and media. The Football Supporters' Federation said the prices were not perfect but an improvement on 2011.
