Should the club get involved?

Liverpool Football Club - General Discussion

Postby Thommo's perm » Sat May 12, 2018 8:46 pm

Ive seen many, many posts on social media from supporters who are upset/disappointed/frustrated/angry at not being able to get a ticket for the CL final in Kiev? Many comments are about Eufa being incompetent, ignorant and greedy, but quite a few are about LFC and the way they have distributed their small allocation and apparently not said anything about the huge amount of fans who will not be able to go due to lack of tickets.
Should the club do something about the amount of tickets they get from eufa, or just accept that it is what it is, and tell the supporters to stop moaning and suck it up?

Real Madrid get the same allocation as us I believe, 16,000. So should their club get involved and start moaning like a b*tch also!??

I think it was the same in Istanbul, we got a shyte allocation, but our fans still managed to find tickets and fill the stadium.

It's the same every season, Uefa allocate tickets to every man and his dog, except the clubs playing in the final, and I doubt we can do much about it. Allocation of 16,000, but we have over 30,000 season ticket holders, so thousands are going to miss out.

A lot will be doing what people like us are doing, going down to the local, with a beer and watching on the big screen. Save a fortune in ££££ also, because those going to the final, will get ripped off big time for flights, accommodation and tickets etc etc.

even if they did get involved, there is nothing much to be done because they can't do anything and it's out of their hands

It's how it is, as unfortunate as it is.

The answer of course is to hold it in bigger stadiums however next year's final will be the the new Atletico Madrid stadium (as yet unfinished) with a capacity of 67,000.....

It's sadly part and parcel of the CL. 

I was fortunate enough to go to last year's final in Cardiff as a sponsor's guest and was shocked at the number of people who didn't really seem to care for football.

Was chatting to a guy in hospitality before the match, only for him to say "I don't really like or understand football, I don't even really know why I'm here"   :suspect:
“You cannot transfer the heart and soul of Liverpool Football Club, although I am sure there are many clubs who would like to buy it.”

What a tragic post. The stadium in Kiev has a capacity of 70k. 16k each goes to fans of both clubs leaving another 38k. And who are they for? Fans? Noobs? Corporate boot lickers who know f all about Football?

UEFA should accommodate to the fans to create a better atmosphere. It's a football game, not a guided overseas or museum trip.

16000 each in a 70000 stadium is pretty pathetic but it's been like this for years so nothing new. 25000 each would still allow 20000 for corporates.
