      Final tickets need sorting right across the board
      Apr 19, 2016 01:05:21 am
      Sorry, I know people will say I'm getting ahead of myself.

      But we're a 2 legged tie away from another major European final and it looks like should we get there, we'll be allocated under 10,000 tickets!!! ???

      The genuine fan yet again will get royally shafted, it's got to stop! Yet another sign modern day football is light years apart from it's roots.

      I'm going over to Switzerland come what may if we get through, but it looks like I won't be getting anywhere near the stadium FFS!  :f_steam:

      less than 10,000

      That means not even season ticket holders WITH auto cup will qualify

      crazy

      Embarrassing that a European Cup Final is held at such a small ground!

      Sad fact indeed.

      Although when you've got the likes of Villarreal in the semi final and they are struggling to shift semi final tickets then maybe theres a reason why they haven't gone for a mega stadium.

      Let's face it we still might not get there and would Villarreal v Shakhtar sell out the Nou Camp for a final?

      IF, and it's still an IF, we get there, then yeah it is sh*t but you can't blame UEFA trying to guarantee at the least full crowd and thus an atmosphere.

      Realistically any European stadium that involves Liverpool in a final wouldn't be big enough would it.  Same cannot be said for the overwhelming majority of other clubs.

      How have you managed that?

      The allocation we've got is sh*te. I've got all Europa League games recorded on my membership card but I know I won't get anywhere near a final ticket. Very annoying.

      Makes you think what was the f**king point in getting a ticket for f**king Ruban Kazan months ago then.  Don't get me wrong I'm not one of those glory hunting supporters who only ever turns up for 'big' or important games (my best mate does this and it annoys me no end), but the whole point of following and going to the early rounds of the cup games is to get to see your team in the final at the end of it.

      What a load of bollocks.

      10,236 tickets available.

      Anyone interested, it's here:

      I knew there'd be pretty much 0 chance for someone in my position to get hold of one but sucks to have it confirmed.

      Dortmund mate of mine got drawn out in uefa ballot for 2 tickets, I sorted them out 4 years ago with tickets for Udinese game at Anfield Road when they were over playing City. He offered em me after we knocked em out for what he paid. Always knew that act of kindness on my part 4 years back would come around. Karma love it.

      Buzzin 4 final just coming down from that atmosphere tonight!

      Have those tickets got a name on them? I read if it doesn't have your name you might not be allowed in.

      Never had the problem before mate, been drawn out in the ballot twice myself over last few years. That time Rangers played Zenit at Etithad sold mine to 2 Rangers fans and both tickets had my name on them. The two lads I sold them too never had a problem getting in.

      I know where yr coming from cos read the release in regard the Liverpool tickets and needing passport number on etc.

      The club have released the criteria today.  Anybody with 8 Europa League games recorded this season are guaranteed a ticket.

      Very annoying as I have all seven home games but none away (which are close to impossible to get).

      Sh*te.

      Could you just say "it was a present"? Would they really not let you get in the ground?

      Sorry for the questions. And it's pretty much false hope but trying to get a ticket nonetheless.

      Flights booked and for Basel regardless.

      Drunken decision last night but f**k it.

      Mate of mine's brother lives in Basel so accomodation is free which helps. Plus he may be able to get a few tickets through one avenue or another. Fingers crossed but doubt it.

      when you get out there take plenty of Swiss Francs and a brown paper bag and ask for a guy called Sepp.
      I cant see Liverpool fans sitting back and doing nothing I fully expect a Stadium 3/4 full of Liverpool supporters. Uefa hate us going to finals because we always take a huge support many without tickets so it will be a party atmosphere regardless

      Belfast mate.

      Not sure where we're flying to though, was too dear flying to Switzerland so think it's France somewhere and then we'll get a train or hire a car.

      I just gave my mate the money last night and he booked it, and knowing him we're probably hundreds of miles away.

      LOL. We're flying to Basel Mulhouse buts its actually in France. Stopping in place in Germany called Lorrech would have paid about 10 times what we have if we'd stayed in Basel! Beers cheaper in Germany aswell.

      Basel's right in the corner of both France and Germany, when I lived there I used go Beer shopping in Germany and Wine shopping in France :-)

      Does anybody have any idea of what the ballot criteria will be?

      I'm going to be so pissed off if somebody with just one or two home games recorded on their card gets to go in it with people like me who has seven. The people who jumped on the bandwagon once we drew United/Dortmund can f**k off as far as Im concerned.

      I hope the club put the people with 7 in a ballot only.

      Yes seen it it's mad, talking roughly 15 mins on train from where we're stopping in Germany to be in Basel and about same from airport in France to Switzerland.

      You say you lived there, what it like swapping between countries is it just like us over here going to Scotland/Wales?

      Most years, the European finals are held in roughly the same region.

      2011: Dublin-London
      2013: Amsterdam-London
      2015: Warsaw-Berlin
      2016: Basle-Milan

      Mind you, even removing French and Italian stadiums, there are bigger and better stadiums available in the region than Basle to play this final.
