UEFA to refund Liverpool fans after Champions League final chaos (Details)
In response to the mistreatment of supporters outside the Stade de France, UEFA has announced that all Liverpool fans who attended the Champions League final last year will receive a refund.
After thousands of Liverpool fans who had tickets for the game were confined against perimeter fences and stuck in a motorway underpass prior to the game, an independent inquiry was launched.
French police outside the stadium used excessive force and sprayed tear gas on some Liverpool supporters who had been queuing for more than two hours outside locked gates.
A statement from UEFA read: “We have taken into account a huge number of views expressed both publicly and privately and we believe we have devised a scheme that is comprehensive and fair.
“We value the input from the Liverpool FC supporter organisations Spirit of Shankly (SoS) and Liverpool Disabled Supporters Association (LDSA) as well as the open and transparent dialogue throughout this period.
“We recognise the negative experiences of those supporters on the day and with this scheme we will refund fans who had bought tickets and who were the most affected by the difficulties in accessing the stadium.”

Former Chelsea star will claim historic treble if Roma win the Europa League
As the season approaches its end, the pursuit of European glory captivates the minds of six prominent clubs spanning the continent.
Tammy Abraham stands out as a player well-acquainted with triumph on the grandest stage, and he has the chance to elevate himself further on Wednesday night.
Should Roma emerge victorious in the Europa League final against Sevilla, Abraham will etch his name in the annals of football history as the first individual to secure all three of the current European trophies, having previously triumphed in the Champions League and Europa Conference League.
This remarkable feat, achieved within a mere three seasons, would solidify Abraham’s legacy and elevate him to legendary status.
The 25-year-old’s journey across continental football commenced at Chelsea, where he contributed to their victorious Champions League campaign during the 2020/21 season.
Following a tumultuous period under the management of Frank Lampard, Chelsea made the decision to part ways with their revered club icon and brought in Thomas Tuchel to guide the team’s fortunes.
Bayern Munich vs Man City: Confirmed lineups
On Wednesday, in the second leg of a Champions League quarterfinal matchup at Allianz Arena, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola will face his former club Bayern Munich for the first time since he left Bayern Munich in 2016.
Before moving on to lead Manchester City, Guardiola, now 52, led Bayern Munich for three seasons (2013–16) and won the Bundesliga title each time. On Wednesday, Guardiola’s men enter the second leg with a 3-0 lead by virtue of the team’s decisive victory last week.
Bayern Munich XI: Sommer; Pavard, Upamecano, de Ligt, Cancelo; Kimmich, Goretzka; Sane, Musiala, Coman, Choupo-Moting.
Man City XI: Ederson; Akanji, Stones, Dias, Ake; Rodri, Gundogan, De Bruyne; Bernardo, Haaland, Grealish.
Chelsea vs Real Madrid: Confirmed lineups
Chelsea will need to overcome a two-goal deficit to keep their Champions League hopes alive when they face Real Madrid on Tuesday night.
Karim Benzema and Marco Asensio scored the hosts’ goals in the Champions League quarterfinal matchup last week in Madrid. Chelsea should win by no less than three objectives to progress to the semi-finals, an accomplishment that appears to be unimaginable in light of late structure.
The Blues have drawn two and lost five in their last seven games in all competitions, with Frank Lampard losing all three matches since taking charge.
Chelsea XI: Kepa; Fofana, Thiago Silva, Chalobah; James, Kovacic, Enzo, Kante, Cucurella; Gallagher, Havertz.
Real Madrid XI: Courtois; Carvajal, Militão, Alaba, Camavinga; Modric, Kroos, Valverde; Vinícius Júnior, Benzema, Rodrygo.
