Borussia Dortmund Receives More Than 500K Ticket Requests For Champions League Final

Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund, which will play against Bayern Munich in the Champions League Final, "has received 502,567 ticket requests for the game" at Wembley Stadium on May 25, according to the EXPRESS. However, the majority of fans "will come away empty handed as the club received only a little more than 24,000 tickets to the game." Club members, fan clubs and season-ticket holders "will receive preferential treatment at the upcoming ticket lottery" (EXPRESS, 5/6). REUTERS' Brian Homewood reported prices start at £60 ($93) per ticket and go up to £330 ($513) for the top category, "a shock for German fans used to much lower prices for Bundesliga matches" (REUTERS, 5/6).
