UEFA will reward fans with thousands of free tickets to the finals
Aleksander Ceferin, President of UEFA, announced the fans’ unwavering offer of support throughout the pandemic.
UEFA have announced that they will be donating 30,000 tickets to supporters of teams taking part in this season’s European finals to thank them for their support during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Champions League finalists will each receive 5,000 tickets and a total of 8,000 tickets will be distributed for the Europa League final, UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin said on Monday.
The Europa Conference League and Women’s Champions League finals will each have 6,000 tickets available.
“Football fans are the lifeblood of the game and we thought this would be a great way to recognize the struggles they have faced over the past two years and how they have nevertheless managed to support their teams,” said Ceferin.
UEFA said clubs can use the tickets to reward loyal supporters, but must not be given to sponsors, partners or club officials.
The pandemic has had a huge impact on European clubs, which have lost $7.92 billion over two seasons due to games played behind closed doors and a drop in transfer income, according to a study published by UEFA this month.
