Surely people hoovering up hotel rooms and flights long before their team has made it only adds to the difficulties of supporters attending a European final?

It was £34 return when I booked, now £564. There is your answer

I'm going too. Flying out early morning and back on the Thursday, I did go in the ballot through uefa but unsure on the odds on that.

Be hilarious that they'll be a good few of us over there.😂

Yeah definitely drop me a message if you go.

People above on about the Ďneutralí section saying taking off other people, wonder what they would do if they were successful and have travel, hotel and days off work booked and loves their footy? Obviously gutted we are not there but in 4 occasions of pre booking travel, this is the only time it has not paid off. Went to Paris for £60 all in because of pre booking and was lucky to successful in all ballots. Each to their own but it works for me

Blame the airlines and hotels for profiteering, not the fans for trying to get as cheap as possible.

Youíll find from previous European finals, as it gets close to the actual date and the teams are confirmed, prices drop a little.

Wouldíve been a bit of a logistical nightmare for many getting to this final. You canít drive or get a train as itís not mainland Europe. Limited travel options for many.

We would have to dramatically improve but the champions league final next season is in the Allianz Arena. Itís far easier to get too last minute at a reasonable price than Dublin wouldíve been, if youíre not willing to travel unless youíre successful in the ballot, for example.

I took punts on booking Dublin last June for £90 (best flights for 1 night trip and back for parade if out of FA cup) and Marseille when the draw was done for £55 (didn't book Lisbon)

If we didn't drop a bollock the other week I'd have been quid's in, only like a footie bet isn't it

For Paris the other year I paid £40, Villarreal £26 soon as their goal hit the back of the net in the last min - saved a fortune pre-booking flights, this is the only time it hasn't worked out for me, £145 out of pocket but saved a lot more than that over the years, splash in the pond compared to the costs of a season overall, currently at 7.6k with 5 games to go, might just tip 8k with a London trip on sat and a day out in town on the beers for Wolves

It's a UEFA ballot, so if you were successful and didn't take the ticket where do you think it would end up?  It wouldn't go direct to either of the clubs in the final, it would go to someone else who was successful in the ballot, a sponsor, or a tout.

itíd hopefully go to fans who selected their team on the uefa ballot and want to support their own team. iím aware the tickets wonít go to the respective club - it still means one less fan of the two teams going to their final

maybe if it was two smaller teams and it didnít sell out itíd incentivise this nonsense ballot to stop, as unlikely as this is as thereíll be plenty wanting to go even if not supporting either team for the experience.

feel like people are viewing this as an isolated uefa issue but if you zoom out itís all part of the same gripe. tickets should go to the fans of the respective clubs.

Exactly, everyone has their own opinion. But in this case you are talking about the UEFA ballot, I already have my tickets secured from a sponsor on this occasion so itís nothing to do with the ballot in every other occasion, yes, I have entered the Uefa for ballot but been unsuccessful. Luckily, I have been successful with every ballot at the club apart from one FA Cup semi-final since 2018 so I am in a lucky position and appreciate that. I donít think that should take the edge off not wanting to go to another football game because it is a different team. Lighten up a little bit, our team has done absolutely wonderful things over the Last few years that we have all been there for. This time it hasnít worked out but fuck it I will still go to the game. Not everyone has to agree but that is fine.

i mean you're extending the boundaries here

of course i occasionally watch other teams on television

would i go to a rival or neutral ground for a 'stag do'? no? seems a bit weird and unenjoyable as a 'stag' activity actually? but a normal match is not the same as a final, where tickets are scarce enough. would you want groups of 6 or so coming on 'stag dos' to Anfield? bizarre

Apparently the vast majority of the draw is done by computer and will be all but decided by the time it's shown.

God knows how long they will take to get the 8 fixtures against the 8 different teams out

Iíve had a quick read about the new set up, but donít know about the draw procedure. Guessing itís not an open draw, or you could end up with teams having eight easier/tough fixtures?

Its still 4 pots and you are drawn with 2 teams from each pot, including pot 1. We can get an English team as 1 of the 8 games too.

Cheers mate! Should be guaranteed some big games in the group stages then, guess thatís one of the reasons theyíre making this change.

Not that I think they should, because I donít think thereís anything wrong with the current system!

Morning. Not quite sure if protocol here, but I hope mods allow. I secured two hospitality tickets for Dublin. I can't give back to UEFA which is ridiculous.  I have reached out on Facebook to a few fans from those teams left in the comp, but just wondering if anyone on here interested.
