UEFA hikes some Champions League final tickets by 14 percent

01 March 2016, 20:35

London - UEFA is hiking the cost of Champions League final tickets by up to 14 percent.

The first 6,000 tickets for the May 28 match at San Siro in Milan went on sale by lottery on Tuesday. A further 40,000 seats in the 71,500-capacity stadium will later be split between the finalists.

UEFA said 30 percent of the seats are in the most expensive category and have climbed 13 percent, from 390 euros at the 2015 final in Berlin to 440 euros ($478).

Category 2 tickets, which account for 26 percent of sales, have risen by 14 percent, from 280 euros to 320 euros ($348).

But UEFA has frozen the cost of the lowest ticket categories at 160 euros ($174; 33 percent of seats) and 70 euros ($76; 11 percent of seats).

"As in previous years, UEFA consulted the independent Football Supporters Europe network when setting ticket prices for this year's final," European soccer's governing body said in a statement.

The remaining 25,500 tickets will be allocated to sponsors, corporate hospitality, broadcasters, UEFA guests, national associations and local organizers.
