Kiev's Olympic Stadium

Both Liverpool and Real Madrid have been allocated 16,626 tickets each for the final of the Champions League at Kiev’s Olympic Stadium, reports ESPN

The venue has recently had its capacity reduced from being able to contain 70,000 spectators to now 63,000.

Upon progressing to the final after defeating AS Roma on Wednesday night, Liverpool confirmed that the UEFA have decided to allocate 63% of the seats to the “general supporter allocation” with an additional 25% of the stands going to “seasonal hospitality members and priority rights holders”.

The remainders of the available tickets will be given to past and present players, officials and match representatives.

The UEFA intends to make nearly 7,000 tickets available to fans around the world and plan on handing the rest of them to “the local organising committee, UEFA and national associations, commercial partners and broadcasters, and to serve the corporate hospitality programme.”

The European football governing body has also confirmed that Real will be made the “nominal home team” for the final.

Ticket prices will range from £48 to £394.
