Tottenham Hotspur fans have just five days left to wait for their first ever Champions League final, as some prepare to make the trip over to Madrid for the June 1 event.
Unfortunately, each team was only given 16,613 tickets of the 63,500 stadium, meaning many fans were left disappointed in their pursuit of a golden ticket (BBC).
However, according to the Mirror, hundreds more from both sets of supporters are set to be left crushed this week, as some ticket agencies are having to backtrack on promises.
The report claims that some agencies are in ‘chaos’ and can no longer deliver previously promised seats for the highly-anticipated final.
This will be an extra kick in the teeth for a select few fans, as they would have likely already booked their flights and accommodation for the match.
The Mirror claim that this has sparked security fears in Madrid, as an increased number of frustrated fans will be attending without tickets.
Fans will also be kicked out of UEFA Fan-Zone a whopping three hours before kick-off, which could leave supporters searching the city for bars in which to watch the event.
Spurs Web Opinion:
The whole ticketing process has been an absolute joke this season, in both the Champions League and the Europa League. Clubs can only survive with the fans, and these same fans spend hundreds, if not thousands, supporting their teams each season. So, why are the tickets not split down the middle? Why has it become such a money-grabbing corporate event that holds fans to ransom if they want to attend? Something big needs to be done in my opinion.
It should be affordable, fair, and for those who have supported the teams through thick and thin.
