Fans Call For Changes To Champions League Finals

Fans of Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur submitted a list of demands to UEFA after "numerous complaints" following the Champions League and Europa League finals last season. A joint statement from the club's fan groups covers "various problems such as inadequate ticket allocations and inconvenient travel arrangements." The groups called for an 80% allocation of tickets to be made available to the Champions League finalists after Liverpool and Spurs were allocated only 16,613 tickets each for last year's final. Suggestions were also made to choose stadiums with a minimum capacity of 60,000 for the Europa League final and 75,000 for the Champions League final, "helping to keep ticket prices affordable" (REUTERS, 8/28).
