Kyiv has won the right to host the final match of the 2018 UEFA Champions League. The match will take place at the NSC "Olimpiyskiy", which can accommodate 70,000 football fans. As UEFA is an organizer of the match, they will be the one distributing tickets for the game. The tickets will be given to clubs that participate in the final of the 2018 Champions League. Their names will be announced in early May 2018. If Ukrainian team gets to the final, it will be possible to apply for tickets on the clubs' quota.

Tickets for the Champions League final at "Wembley"

If you kept track of previous years tickets' prices, you could see a gradual increase every year. That is why the 2018 final prices might be slightly higher.

How to buy tickets

The tickets sale will begin in spring 2018. Sale of corporate packages begins in November 2017.

In case a ticket lottery will be organized, the procedure is described below.

First of all, go to the UEFA ticket portal:


There you will see price categories of tickets available.

Note that one person can apply for no more than two tickets in each price category.

All correctly submitted applications will participate in the lottery, the results of which determine the holders of tickets for the match.

Below you can sign in to your account or sign up for the ticket portal.

Step 1. At this stage, you need to select the type of ticket: regular or child+adult.

If you plan a trip for two adults, then select Single ticket. The same option will work for one person.



Next, choose the price and a number of tickets (maximum two). If you choose a pair of tickets, it is necessary to fill in the information about the second person.

For example, we will choose one ticket for 70 euros.

Double check chosen options.



Step 2. Check (edit if necessary) your information.



Here is an advice for you. It is possible to enter a unique code that belongs to your friends/colleagues that allows you to team up your tickets to one group/sector. This option is available only in case of the victory of the team.



Step 3: Now you have to enter details of your credit card. In April (it was until April 8th in 2016) all applicants will receive an email notification with results of the lottery. If your application is successful, then the required amount will be charged automatically from your credit card. As a rule, the money will not be written off immediately, but within 3-4 days. If you win but do not want to buy the tickets, they will be available to the next winner.



Also, you need to make a choice whether or not you agree to receive tickets from different price categories if there is an availability for your request.

At the end, click SUBMIT YOUR APPLICATION, and then see a confirmation that your application has been successfully accepted.

A confirmation will be sent to your email.

In case of a positive lottery outcome and the ticket purchase, you will need to print out the ticket from your account on the UEFA ticket portal to get to the stadium.

Any changes, including credit card details, or waiver of tickets, you can make before the closure of the ticket portal.

By the way, a submission order of applications within the specified period does not influence the result as all applications will be processed together.

If you missed the draw

The finals of major tournaments are always overcrowded, and the number of fans is much higher than the capacity of the stadium where the match is being played. There are a lot of intermediaries on the internet who offer overpriced tickets for the football game. For example, last year for a ticket worth 100-200 euros the dealers were asking 2,000-4,000 euros!

As well, there is no guarantee that they will sell you a real ticket.

When buying the tickets from the dealers, fans must understand the risk they are taking. No one can guarantee that purchased tickets are real.

If I am from another city/country

If you want to come to Kyiv for the final UEFA Champions League match, you need to book bus/train/flight tickets and reserve a hotel after the lottery results are announced. You will have a month to make your reservations, but it is better to proceed immediately.

Flight tickets can be booked in advance, but tickets for Ukrainian trains become available only 40 days before the departure date.

There are many companies that organize football trips. You can use their services and do not worry about the upcoming event.

And the last advice. Do not use internet services of brokers you don't know. There is a high chance that you will not see your tickets or get a "fake" one. Experience from previous years shows that there are a lot of dishonest dealers everywhere, not only in Ukraine.
