Champions League final sold out for first time
A first in women’s soccer: for the first time since the introduction of the Champions League in 2008, the final is completely sold out. This year the final match is at the Phillips Stadium in Eindhoven. On June 3, FC Barcelona and VfL Wolfsburg will face each other.
In total, more than 34,000 tickets were available. “This is the first time we have had a completely sold-out Champions League final. And that just a few weeks in advance,” said Nadine Kessler, UEFA’s director of women’s soccer. During the group stage, there was an average of 11,000 spectators at each match.
Gijs de Jong, secretary general at the Dutch Football Association (KNVB), is delighted: “We have wanted to bring the final to the Netherlands for some time. Even nicer is that this will be the first sold-out final in history.”
