20,000 CL Final tickets each team

Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid will receive 20,000 tickets each for the Champions League Final, at San Siro on May 28.

AS notes the stadium in Milan holds more than 80,000, reduced to just under 72,000 for security reasons, and just over half of the crowd will be given to the two clubs.

6,000 tickets were put on general sale in March and almost 26,000 go to the local organising committee, UEFA, national associations, the media and the tournament’s eight sponsors.

AS adds that the clubs will have far more applications for tickets than tickets to sell, as was the case in Lisbon in 2014, when the sides last contested the fixture.

It’s also pointed out that though San Siro has a far greater capacity than the Estadio da Luz – which held 61,000 – the clubs only get 3,000 tickets more. AS also question why the number of seats removed for security reasons has gone from the 3,000 two years ago to almost 10,000 this year.

Madrid are to hold a ballot to allocate their tickets among club members, while Atletico will prioritise members with seniority and those who hold a full season ticket.
