Champions League final allocation revealed for Wembley 2024

Despite the competition only being at the quarter-finals stage, UEFA have officially revealed the Champions League final allocation for the showpiece event at Wembley Stadium in early June.

Out of the 86,600 tickets available, 25,000 will be given to supporters of each club who qualify for the final. It means that just over half of the stadium will contain supporters who have followed their respective clubs across Europe this season.

A further 10,000 are being offered to general football fans and the public to purchase. Applications are now being taken for these tickets via UEFA's official website. Each applicant is allowed to apply for two tickets and they are able to do so until April 16.

UEFA have included an option whereby fans of the eight remaining teams in the competition are able to apply on the basis that they'd only want tickets if their team made it to the final. This could mean that thousands of applications are rendered void nearer the time of the ballot which could boost the chances of others.

All of the other 26,600 tickets will be assigned to sponsors and corporate guests which means nearly one-third of the stadium will be corporate guests who have no real preference on who wins. The prices for the final have also been revealed. The cheapest ticket at Wembley for the Champions League final will cost £60 (reserved for fans of the team) while the most expensive will cost £610.

Fans react to Champions League final allocation

As ever, the allocation for football supporters has been slammed by fans online. An Arsenal fan who is dreaming of seeing his team reach the final posted on social media:

“This is insane. I've had my regular seat moved in every single UCL game for sponsors and it's possible I may not get a Final ticket, despite a bum on my seat for every game this season.”

Another fan posted: “It’s an absolute joke the way that big final tickets are allocated. Corporate, UEFA, broadcasters etc shouldn’t get half as many tickets as they get. A third added: “Absolute joke… whether we get there or not, 25,000 in a 90,000 stadium is scandalous.”

The reaction comes on the same day that Football Supporters Europe (FSE) slammed the Europa League final allocation where only 50% of the stadium's total capacity will taken up by fans of the two finalists. The group has called on UEFA “to do right by supporters and increase the allocation”. They added:

“A paltry 50% of capacity for Europa League finalist clubs is, simply, not good enough and falls well short of FSE's demand to provide at least 66% of tickets for all European finals to supporters of the teams involved.”
