Respect to anyone who pays that for a game of footy. That plus your transport, accommodation, food, drink etc. Big money for 90 mins

Checking prices if you self book, and considering the convenience etc, involved, its not really that expensive, all considering, especially if you can't really take more than a day or two off work

Bloody hell 😂 Nobody on the forum has any idea about details/allocations until it's announced by the club

Just wait until then - here's where any announcement will be:

Has there been an allocation announced for this one ??

Sorry not yet, but Iíve seen 3-3.5k being bandied about from previous CL games so itís fairly sizeable.

Each to their own but you get a holiday for a fraction of the price when you self book. Itís the best part. Day trips are just a flight to go the match so in context theyíre very expensive. Iíll happily hold my hands up and say Iím not committed enough to pay the best part of 4 ton to go straight there and back.

Yeah, but may depend on any potential further Covid measures in Portugal.....which has recently extended remaining Covid restrictions into next month due to the high prevalence of the Omicron BA2 variant and increased infections - although I've not seen any info regarding limits on stadia capacities in Portugal, as yet.

1+ were guaranteed for Madrid with a 3306 allocation, so will be again as the allocation should be similar for this.

Meaning someone who has been to all homes and several aways this season won't be considered for a ticket for the final (if indeed we get there) but someone who has only homes from previous seasons will be?

I personally don't see how that will be fair

I think he means away credits don't count, which was correct up to and including the Inter game - due to the fact there is a pandemic on.

That'll not be fair either, as some people have more aways than homes.

I think credits from this season might be used if we get to final but not for next season. Away tickets counted for league cup final didnít they?

Or Benfica +semi will count as credits.
There are no restrictions or test to get into Portugal and stadiums at 100%. This may be the first one that will carry a credit (credit counts for this season only).

Yep - Covid was the reason for no credits. This is the first game where rightly or wrongly - both countries are Ďliving with Covidí.

Yes, it says on the selling notices it will be reviewed on a game by game basis. I would actually be surprised if this does not carry a credit.

Yeah fair points actually, I'm not so sure, I think they might get a bit of stick if they changed it mid-way through, but I can see what you mean

They need to get a move on given the game is in 2 weeks!

will be interested to see what they do. even if we're both 'living with covid' at this point i think it's fair to assume there's fans that are reluctant to travel still.

Surely there has to be a point where a credit counts and this game is the perfect oppourtunity.

Credit would only be for this season anyway, not future seasons. So it would only be used for max of 2 games over the next 2 months.

Are people who are reluctant to travel suddenly going to be fine travelling to Paris in 2 months time? Or Munich/Villarreal in a months time?

Exactly - 'living with Covid' whether here or in Portugal doesn't mean the thing has gone away......there is high prevalence of Covid both here and Portugal (and increasing). So, even if there is a full allocation and no restrictions, it may not be enough to persuade some to travel.

Thing is though mate, if they won't travel to Portugal in April for the Quarters, then surely they won't travel to Paris for the Final in May anyway?

Personally think it's time to bring back credits again, because it's not like it will disappear anytime soon, and they can't keep going off credits from 2020 forever

Possibly, I don't know. All I'm saying is there are people who have been put off travelling because of the pandemic (some regular travellers) - and the club have recognised that, hence the notices about credits not counting for this season. It may well be that for this upcoming game the club use it as a credit going forward, but it would go against what they've already said in previous sales notices.

No it wouldnít, the club have made it very clear on all 4 selling notices :

This will be reviewed on a game-by-game basis during the competition this season, with further announcements ahead of each game.

On another note, tomorrow will be 6 days since the draw and as per usual, no selling details.

One thing that you can guarantee though is that it will be Benfica's fault, not LFC's. The closer it gets to the game, the more likely that it will be collection only in Lisbon, it was a shit show at Inter so no doubt lessons have not been learnt.

Surely it can't be that hard for ticket details to be released? Benfica already have their home tickets on sale so whats the delays for? TO being inconsiderate towards travelling supporters once again.
