Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore has vowed to question UEFA after supporters were handed just 16,000 tickets for next month’s Champions League final against Tottenham.
The Wanda Metripolitano boasts a capacity of 68,000 but fans of both teams have been infuriated by the paltry supply.
Moore admitted yesterday that he will now meet with UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin to discuss the ticketing issue.
“We talk to UEFA every day,” he said via Neil Jones of Goal. “We have been talking to UEFA for 40 years as you well know. But we do want UEFA to understand this city, which they do.
“Ceferin was here last year for the Manchester City home game and I spent a lot of time with him. I will see him next week.
“Today our football club is focused on helping our supporters everywhere.
“It was about getting the M&S Bank Arena all done and sorted and that was done today. There are a lot of logistics involved there.
“Then we are getting our fan park ready in Madrid – our team is right there now, helping supporters.
“I will see [Ceferin] and usually when I see [him] there are 20-things and it is all the things that you think: what do we do for allocations, what do we do for this? All of the normal stuff. It is a long list.
“The good news is we are going to a Champions League final but there is a lot of work to do to make it work.”
