Tottenham Hotspur will go up against Liverpool on the 1st of June in the Wanda Metropolitana Stadium in Madrid for the honour of being crowned the champions of Europe.
Both teams have defied the odds to book a place in the Spanish by mounting outstanding comebacks in the second legs of their respective semi-finals.
With neither Mauricio Pochettino nor Jurgen Klopp having won any silverware during their time in England, this game represents a massive opportunity for one of the two to break the duck by landing the biggest prize in European football.
However, the two Premier League clubs together have only been allocated a total of 33,286 tickets out the 68,000 available for the game (BBC).
This has caused a mad scramble among fans to get tickets, with some fans even willing to pay several times the original price to get a chance to watch their team in the final.
After seeing the exuberant amounts that some fans are selling their tickets for, the club has posted a statement on their official website warning fans that the club is about to begin the collection process for tickets, and that fans will not be allowed to sell their tickets anymore.
Further, the club also informed the fans that tickets purchased are strictly non-transferable and that anybody who is caught selling their ticket for a profit would be subject to harsh punishments including an indefinite season ticket ban.

Given that this is one of the biggest games in the recent history of both clubs, it is a disgrace that UEFA have allocated less than half of the tickets to Spurs and Liverpool fans.
However, it has been disappointing to see so many fans willing to sell their tickets on for a considerable profit, thus ripping off their fellow Spurs fans in the process. It is about time that the club issued this type of threat to the fans.
