Liverpool fans desperate to attend the Champions League final are facing the prospect of paying thousands of pounds for a single ticket.
The Reds sold out their allocation of 16,626 seats but now hundreds of tickets are available on resale websites.
One seat in a corner of Kiev’s Olympic Stadium, with a face value of £281, is advertised for almost £15,000. Some VIP packages cost over £20,000.
Resale websites are offering tickets to Liverpool’s Champions League final for up to £15,000
On website Ticketbis on Monday, the cheapest seat in Liverpool’s section, face value £140, was priced at £1,181.
‘The situation is ridiculous,’ Liverpool fan Neil Atkinson told the BBC. ‘People who don’t support either club will end up with tickets and look at it as an opportunity to make money.’
Liverpool warned supporters that ‘under no circumstances should tickets for the final be purchased from unofficial sources… The club is aware of instances of tickets being sold at extortionate prices’.
