Real Madrid demand for Champions League final tickets drops - report

Thursday 18th May 2017

Real Madrid can afford no slip-ups in their bid for La Liga, which the FC panel don't think will happen vs. Celta Vigo.



Real Madrid have received fewer requests from club members looking for Champions League final tickets in Cardiff this year than for either the 2014 final in Milan or the 2016 decider in Lisbon, according to AS.



Madrid and Juventus are both receiving 17,518 tickets from UEFA for the game at the National Stadium of Wales on June 3, with the Spanish club distributing 3,925 directly and holding a lottery to decide which socios -- club members -- get the remaining 13,593 seats.

A Madrid statement on Tuesday evening confirmed that 44,755 tickets had been requested for the game by club members, each of whom can ask for up to six.


"Real Madrid today closed the window for requesting tickets for the Champions League final, being played on June 3 against Juventus in Wales' National Stadium," the statement read. "44,755 tickets were sought, across 13,202 requests.

"On Thursday, from 12:45 CEST [live on Realmadrid TV] the lottery will take place. The result will be announced via Realmadrid.com and the club's socios office. Real Madrid will also contact the lucky socios to tell them when they can collect their tickets."

AS says the number of tickets requested is down from the 56,047 requested for last year's final against Atletico Madrid in Milan and the 73,314 supporters who hoped to travel to Lisbon for the 2014 decider, also against neighbours Atletico.

Madrid's statement also came with a warning from the club, who have opened disciplinary proceedings against socios who resold tickets at a profit for the recent Clasico against Barcelona, saying that members could be expelled for any "wrongful use" of tickets for the Champions League final.

"Any wrongful use of the ticket, or resale of the same, would open up the socio to disciplinary proceedings and could lead to their expulsion as a socio," the statement read.

One reason for the reduced number of Madrid fans wishing to travel to Cardiff this year may be the price of accommodation in the Welsh capital and nearby.

Reports in the UK say that some hotel rooms in Swansea, 42 miles away, have been hiked to £4,650 per night, although UEFA has reportedly done deals with some providers to supply more affordable accommodation.

As the match never really interestef me, I never looked.



Spanish Segunda 2B

Just bought my play-off ticket to watch Atletico Baleares v Toledo for this Sunday,then off to Madrid to watch the 2nd leg 6 days later, then if they get through for more matches, I prefer lower division football more passion and feeling between club and fans :thumbright:

5 Euros for season ticket holders, 15 Euros for non season ticket holders :thumbright:


Sold 1,400 first day, prob is crowd can only be about 4,000 max and thats not official :lol: :thumbright:

£4650 to stay in a rat infested shithole ? :o :shock: :laughing6: :laughing6: That means hotels in Cardiff etc can ask for £16999 per night. But any Madrid fans want to rent a room off Nukes they can have it for a bargain price of £2999 pp per night :D
