Liverpool fans at 2022 Champions League final in Paris will receive ticket refund by UEFA

UEFA have announced they will issue a full ticket refund to all Liverpool supporters who attended last year’s Champions League final versus Real Madrid.

All 19,618 Liverpool ticket holders will receive their ticket refund which is set to cost UEFA millions.

Fans in Paris were crushed in dangerous bottle necks, tear gassed by police and attacked by local gangs following an independent report which also highlighted the shortcomings of the governing body and the French authorities.

A statement from UEFA read: “We have taken into account a huge number of views expressed both publicly and privately and we believe we have devised a scheme that is comprehensive and fair.

“We value the input from the Liverpool FC supporter organisations Spirit of Shankly (SOS) and Liverpool Disabled Supporters Association (LDSA) as well as the open and transparent dialogue throughout this period.

“We recognise the negative experiences of those supporters on the day and with this scheme we will refund fans who had bought tickets and who were the most affected by the difficulties in accessing the stadium.”
