OFFICIAL Uefa VIP tickets for the Champions League final are being sold for an eye-watering £14,000 apiece.
Thousands of frustrated Liverpool and Tottenham fans cannot get their hands on tickets for the clash in Madrid a week tomorrow.
But SunSport found seats and hospitality reserved for Uefa’s big-money sponsors can be bought… if you have enough cash.
UK-based firm Football Ticket Pad are offering scores of seats for the final at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitana stadium on June 1.
The cheapest of those are £61 category four seats in the Tottenham end of the ground which are listed at an astonishing £6,823 — more than 110 TIMES their face value.
But Ticket Pad, which boasts a “solid supplier base” built up over 11 years in the re-selling market, can also offer access to the most exclusive of areas with other packages.
They are flogging a VIP hospitality package for £11,764 — plus a whopping £2,521 booking fee — which includes one of the best seats, access to the Uefa Village, Uefa lounge and full stadium hospitality before and after the final.
It is claimed Uefa will release these tickets to sponsor agents at 11am on the morning of the final and delivery will be arranged to the buyer’s hotel within two hours.
Tickets falling into the hands of touts has long been a problem at major sporting events and Spurs chiefs even revoked the season- tickets of some fans who tried to sell their final seats for a profit.
But the most exclusive Uefa tickets turning up on the open market will come as a major embarrassment to the European governing body.
It means someone connected with one of their major Champions League sponsors are trying to cash in on their seats by passing them on to touts.
Uefa said in a statement: “Tickets to the 2019 Uefa Champions League final are sold subject to strict terms and conditions which prohibit any unauthorised resale or transfer and invalidate any tickets acquired or used in breach of the terms and conditions.
