UEFA to refund Liverpool’s 19,618 Champions League final tickets

UEFA have revealed that they will refund all the Liverpool fans that attended the 2022 Champions League final in Paris. The match started 36 minutes late due to a rather chaotic situation that took place outside the stadium. 

The French authorities and UEFA blamed the ticketless fans for the events that led to the chaos. But, further developments have caused the governing body of football in Europe to backtrack on their initial stance of there not being enough evidence for the case in May.

“We have taken into account a huge number of views expressed both publicly and privately and we believe we have devised a scheme that is comprehensive and fair,” said Uefa general secretary Theodore Theodoridis.

“We value the input from the Liverpool FC supporter organisations Spirit of Shankly and Liverpool Disabled Supporters Association as well as the open and transparent dialogue throughout this period.

“We recognise the negative experiences of those supporters on the day and with this scheme we will refund fans who had bought tickets and who were the most affected by the difficulties in accessing the stadium.” 

Fans who had tickets to gates A, B, C, X, Y and Z will all be eligible for the refund. However, the Liverpool supporter’s associations have maintained that they want UEFA to deal with the issues more appropriately, and to place more importance on fan safety at big games.
