2018 UEFA Champions League final ticket sales launched

UEFA Champions League

Ticket sales for the 2018 UEFA Champions League final have started exclusively via UEFA.com, and will run until 14.00CET on 22 March.

As usual, fans and the general public are being allocated the majority of the tickets for the final, which will be played at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kyiv, Ukraine, on Saturday 26 May, kicking off at 21.45 local time (20.45CET).

A total of 40,700 tickets out of 63,000 (the stadium’s capacity for the final) are available for fans and the general public to purchase. The two teams who reach the final will receive 17,000 each, while 6,700 tickets are being offered for sale to fans worldwide via UEFA.com. The remaining tickets are allocated to the local organising committee, UEFA and national associations, commercial partners and broadcasters, and to serve the corporate hospitality programme.

For the sales process on UEFA.com, tickets will not be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Instead, a ballot will be conducted to allocate the tickets once the sales period has ended. As in previous years, UEFA consulted the independent Football Supporters Europe network (FSE) when setting ticket prices, which have again remained stable across all categories.

The price categories available for the general public are: Category 4: €70, Category 3: €160, Category 2: €320, Category 1: €450, and youth package: €140 (two Category 2 tickets – one adult and one child under 14 – sold at discounted Category 4 rate). Accessibility tickets for disabled spectators are available for €70 (ticket priced at Category 4 rate and one companion ticket provided for free). Delivery costs are included in the prices of all tickets.

Applicants can apply for up to two tickets per person. The tickets will be personalised, and each applicant is required to provide their personal details on the ticket portal. They will be informed via email by 6 April at the latest as to whether their application has been successful or not. Applicants will also be able to check the status of their application on the ticket portal with their log-in information. Tickets will be delivered by courier by no later than mid-May.
