How much does it cost to go to the Champions League Final?
On May 28th, FC Barcelona and Manchester United will be fighting to win the Champions League Final at Wembley Stadium. It will be their second time, last challenge being Rome 2009. The maximum expectation is reflected in the ticket prices to attend the new Wembley.
TicketBis, an intermediary company in the purchase and sale of tickets for any type of event, presents a detailed study on the prices that are currently paid to see live who raises the cup.
• The average price for a ticket is 1.600€
• The most expensive ticket (in a non-VIP area) was bought for 4.500€
• The English pay an average of 1.800€, while the Spanish have spent an average of 1.500€ per ticket
AVERAGE PRICE FOR THE TICKETS
During the last few weeks, the average purchase and sale price for the final is around 1.600€. Digging into the different categories according to the Wembley zoning, this number varies. In the best category, the price goes up to 2.400€; these are the lateral seats in the stadium, from where you get the best view. For category 2 (corners and the bottom seats of the zones behind the goal) you pay 1.800€ per ticket. In category 3 (upper part behind the goal) the prices go down to 1.400€.
AVERAGE PRICE OF THE LAST FINALS: WEMBLEY MORE EXPENSIVE THAN ROME
In 2009, Barcelona and Manchester United played against each other for the first time in a Champions League Final. Back then, the average price paid was 1.500€, about 6% less than in this year’s final.
The final between Inter Milán and Bayern Münich in Bernabéu last year had an average price of 1.200€. The most expensive final was in 2008 between two English teams, Manchester and Chelsea, where 2.000€ were paid.
THE MOST EXPENSIVE TICKET AND THE CHEAPEST
The best example of the desire that the supporters for both teams have to watch the game is the price one fan was willing to pay for a ticket of the lateral seats: 4.500€. For that amount, two people could take a short trip to Las Vegas, spend the night in a suite in Hotel Bellagio, have diner in one of the best restaurants there and they’d still have enough to go out gambling and go around the city in a limousine.
The other extreme is the amount of 750€, the price for the cheapest ticket. Undoubtedly, still a considerable amount of money, but only comparable to how much you’d spend to change your car wheels (at least for some car models!). It’d be 750€ to live one night of football, in which, whether one’s team wins or loses, it’d always be an unforgettable moment in one’s life.
THE ITALIAN, THE ENGLISH, THE GERMAN AND THE SPANISH: WHO PAYS THE MOST FOR THEIR TICKETS
The last two finals have been disputed by four teams from the four most important leagues in Europe: Italy, Germany, England and Spain. Is there any difference in how much a fan from each country would be willing to pay? The answer is yes.
The English fan is, undoubtedly, the most passionate when it comes to give the credit card to pay: they pay an average of 1.800€ per ticket. The value for the pound over the euro also contributes for this.
The Spanish fan and the German fan spent a similar amount to watch FC Barcelona and Bayern Münich: 1.500 and 1.300€ respectively.
In the last position, the Italian fans, who paid an average of 1.000€ per ticket last year.
