    I also understand that there is a £26 “administration” fee that accompanies the Champions League final tickets. Again, if UEFA are not looking to “squeeze all of the money out of the market” then perhaps reviewing the “administration” process to find some efficiencies would be a good start. This amount seems ridiculous to me. It seems as though it may as well be called “extra profit”. What is there to administer..? Online tickets sales, telephone support, distribution of tickets, job done.

    What a load of crap from the UEFA spokesman – has he been taken lessons from the king of spin Peter Mandelson? (Hartlepool United’s number one supporter). Funny how the UEFA spokesman does not mention the comparable events that are more expensive than the Champions League final – is it because they do not exist!

    Why can’t UEFA just be honest and admit they are being greedy in fleecing the supporters – does Platini know there is a worldwide recession.
