UEFA confirm embarrassing Liverpool ticketing share for Europa League final

Liverpool fans will only make up a quarter of the stadium, should the Reds make it to the Europa League final in Dublin on May 22, UEFA has confirmed.

Jurgen Klopp's side are the favourites to win the competition, while the final would be the manager's last game in charge of Liverpool, with the showpiece game scheduled after the conclusion of the domestic season.

However, there are real concerns around a prospective ending to Klopp's Liverpool story in Dublin, with accommodation in the city already scarce.

Thousands of fans would be expected to make the short trip across the Irish Sea in the event that the Reds do make the final but many are set to be left disappointed.

Ticket allocation for Europa League final confirmed

UEFA have now confirmed that the official ticketing allocation for each team for the final will be limited to just 12,000 — a quarter of the Aviva Stadium's overall capacity — with prices ranging from €40 to €150.

In addition to the 24,000 set aside for each of the finalists, another 12,000 tickets will go on general sale, while the remaining 12,000 will apparently be allocated for UEFA's various corporates and VIPs.

The Europa League remains the only trophy Jurgen Klopp hasn’t won as Reds manager thus far, with this season’s final potentially marking a glorious end of his Liverpool era. 

Liverpool face Atalanta in the first leg of their quarter final at Anfield on Thursday night, before the return game a week later.

Should they come through that test, they will face one of Benfica of Marseille in the semis.

On the other side of the draw, West Ham, AC Milan, Roma and Xabi Alonso's Bayer Leverkusen are the other sides vying to make it to the final.
