Liverpool to challenge UEFA over Champions League ticket prices as Roma charge Reds’ fans £73 for semi-final | Mirror Online

Liverpool will once more more raise the issue of ticket prices in the Champions League with UEFA after seeing supporters asked to pay £73 to watch the semi-final with Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.

Liverpool have been handed 5,000 tickets for the clash in the Italian capital, at a cost which is far in excess of the £44.50 that Chelsea fans were charged for their meeting earlier in the tournament.

In further contrast, Roma fans have only paid £48 to watch the first leg at Anfield next Tuesday, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Earlier this year, Liverpool complained to UEFA before the first knockout round after Porto charged away fans three times as much as members.

It’s understood that the pricing structure for away games will continue to be raised by Liverpool with the governing body as part of its overall feedback to them.

UEFA rules state “unless the associations or clubs concerned agree otherwise, the price of tickets for supporters of the visiting team must not exceed the price paid for tickets of a comparable category that are sold to supporters of the home team”.

That normally means general admission prices. Porto charged the same price to their supporters as Liverpool – €75 (£66) – but these were available at a discount of 25 euros to club members.
