UEFA Caps Ticket Prices for Away Fans
Pollstar (09/02/19) Gottfried, Gideon
UEFA has capped ticket prices for away fans in the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, at a maximum of €70 ($76.90) and €45 ($49), respectively. The organization said these prices represent the level of the lowest category ticket price at both soccer games' finals. "This new regulation complements the existing rule which stipulates that the price of tickets for supporters of the visiting team must not exceed the price paid for tickets of a comparable category that are sold to supporters of the home team (excluding tickets available to season tickets holders, persons who are members of a supporters' club or tickets sold as part of a promotional package)," UEFA stated. UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin declared that the cap is designed to ensure that fans "who follow their teams to away matches ... have access to tickets at a reasonable price, bearing in mind the cost they have already had to incur for their trip. By capping ticket prices, we want to make sure that away fans can still travel to games and play their part in making the atmosphere inside football stadiums so special."
