UEFA Cuts Champions League Ticket Prices, Saying High Prices In Previous Years 'A Mistake'
UEFA has "cut the price of the cheapest tickets" for the Champions League final at London's Wembley Stadium compared with the cost two years ago, according to the PA. UEFA is selling 16,800 tickets for £60 ($95) each. In '11 the category four tickets were £150 plus a £26 administration charge for Barcelona's win over ManU. 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 £8 ($12.64) within the U.K. Of the 86,000 seats, 59,000 tickets will be available to fans. Each club will receive 25,000 tickets, and 9,000 will be sold online at uefa.com. There will also be 200 youth packages for children accompanied by an adult, also priced at £60 per ticket. The remainder of the tickets "will be at higher price categories" ranging from £140 ($221) to £330 ($521) (PA, 2/8).
