UEFA Warns Fans Of Online Ticket Sales To Champions League Final
Published May 9, 2013
EUROPA LEAGUE: In London, Matt Hughes reported Chelsea’s ticketing problems before next week’s Europa League final against Benfica have "been exacerbated by a row with the club’s players over their individual allocations." The club has expressed its disappointment with UEFA "at being given only 9,800 tickets for the final at the Amsterdam ArenA" and is now "facing a backlash from the dressing room at what the players consider to be their own paltry allocation." Chelsea’s senior players committee has "made representations to the club about increasing the players’ allowance." Chelsea is "relatively relaxed about the players’ complaints," with sources insisting that "they are never happy with what they are given." The club is "also wary of antagonising fans who have been unable to buy tickets for the sold-out final by giving huge numbers to the players" (LONDON TIMES, 5/8).
