    UEFA hasn't disclosed how many applications there were - but it's likely there was a ridiculous number of applications considering the bots from ticket resellers.

    If you win the lottery, they will likely assign the folks who chose 'fans of Dortmund/Real Madrid' to areas close to the respective fans. If you chose 'Arsenal, Bayern, PSG, Barcelona, City, Other, etc'... you will likely being randomly allocated anywhere in the stadium (ps: UEFA asks which club you support when you are applying to their lottery).

    Talked to a Liverpool fan who won the lottery in 2022 and he was not actually placed with the Liverpool fans. Apparently, both teams have all the tickets to their sections. Guess all the lottery tickets are on the long sides then?

    Ouch ! FIFA and UEFA are unpredictable and sneaky. The only thing that I believe the US sports have better than football is the ticket categorization. Not only 3 or 4 cat’s, but rather more like 10 or 11 (upper side is different than lower side which is different then behind goals, etc.) and each has it’s own price. At least you know what you pay for.

    Btw, is 217 Real Madrid or BVB fans?

    Why would people sell it to you 'cheap' when they can easily get like 3.000€ at Stubhub/Viagogo?
    I mean, come on.. it's not realistic that people do charity on those sums..

    So basically 1 out of 3 got tickets? That's a good chance.

    Do you know how it looked for Dortmund? I assume massive interest.

    If you got something in the very first rows of section 521, you are a winner to be honest.

    "3) 26,000 are not for sale. These are for the sponsors, VIP, etc."

    This is the most disgusting thing that you see every year..
    I mean, 26.000!

    20.000 of these should go to the fans, 10k more to each team..
    But no, they go to celebrities and other people who barely care about the game.

    This is why "elite-football" is such a joke. I love my swedish league with real passion for the game.
    Not 26.000 men in suits making business connections instead of watching the game.

    Seems like it yes. Keeping in mind that is it restricted for members only (every member can apply for himself and 6 others) hence why the number of tickets requested is high.

    For BVB ticket requests, are you ready? 400,000 ticket requests were submitted !!

    Yeah. I have applied when 'my team' played Champions League final before. Never lucky though. I think you had about 15% chance to get a ticket..

    Yeah, I assumed there would be several hundred thousand of applications coming from the germans. That's pretty bonkers.. 400k!

    During 2022 WC, I got sponsor tickets (coca cola) for the ENG vs USA match. The location was just perfect (one of the best seats I have ever got) but the atmosphere was so bad. People around us were talking business and they all know each other one way or another. All of the good seats are literally for VIPs and sponsors.

    To be honest, I do understand that they should get good seats because of their sponsorships and whatever, but my issue is with the number of tickets that they get. For this final, they got around 31% !! Way way too much

    I have never been successful. But this time, I saved up some money and decided to go for third party websites (I know it’s expensive, but it is what it is).

    Yes. I respect that the sponsors shall get a few tickets but 26.000 is just insane. 6.000 which I consider fair is still almost 10% of the stadium. It's the fans who has been there all season supporting their team that should get the chance to see their team play in the final!

    I know this is for Champions League, but anyone have an extra purchase code for the UEFA Conference League final in Athens?

    I agree. I once sat behind a corner (200’s level) and it was fantastic.

    It's because you are in the section 200 - which is normally Wembley Club level. It makes sense to be a CAT 1 and it follows the seating map provided by UEFA.

    Based on this BVB official article (https://www.bvb.de/eng/News/Overvie...-Champions-League-final-to-start-on-Wednesday), BVB will be in the East stand. Hence you will be in the BVB side of the stadium.

    Have you already bought from the third party websites? I'm also on the same boat - I'm currently waiting for them to start selling tickets with a guaranteed block/section.

    Not yet. I will be in London anyway, so I will go for it maybe 2 days before the game. I am hoping that prices eventually drop by that time (I could be wrong).

    Prices will very likely drop a few days before the game. I live in London and I normally follow the price fluctuation on livefootballtickets - prices tend to go down 1-2 days ahead of the game but there might be less choices of seating sections.

    The Viagogo price is 1800 now, few days ago it was 2000. So, prices are going down. From this amount there's a commission from a seller to Viagogo. So, the seller would get around 1500 only. BUT! Only if this ticket will be sold for this price. And that's not a GUARANTEE, that's only a wish of a seller to sell his ticket for desired price. Example: 1 day before one of the previous UCL Final sellers wanted 2000, the next day they were happy to sell for 1000. The same thing is happening now with Taylor Swift tickets. Just 2 months ago tickets were 600 on Viagogo. Now, 2 days before concerts, the price is 150-200.
    So, Viagogo prices are only desires to sell, but not a guarantee.
    So, I'm still waiting for reasonable offers.

    Agree. Things could have been different for me if I was traveling solely for the game. But now, I am not in a rush and I’ll take my time to let the tempo phase out a bit and get something at a “reasonable” 3rd party price.

    During my time in London I was always lucky with FV tickets (chelsea, man city, liverpool, etc.) but I agree with you, prices should go down
