Tottenham will be in the away dressing room for the Champions League final against Liverpool, despite being nominated as the home team. Spurs booked their place in the Madrid showpiece following a memorable 3-2 comeback victory over Ajax at the Amsterdam Arena last week. But due to security reasons, the Tottenham squad have now been allocated the away dressing room with Liverpool given the home dressing room.

What i can't understand is that with a stadium capacity of 63k, why only 32k given to both sets of fans?

Where is 30k of tickets going to?

leaving so many fans scrapping for tickets.

From UEFA: Another 4,000 tickets will be made available to the general public while the remaining 25,500 tickets "are allocated to the local organising committee, UEFA and national associations, commercial partners and broadcasters".

It's basically to line the pockets of "UEFA Family", corporate sponsors, etc. A lot of the tickets will get resold to fans with massive markups.

Sad state of affairs but c'est la vie these days unfortunately.

When I see the phrase 'UEFA Family', I can't help thinking of the five crime Families of New York City.

If we don't absolutely batter Liverpool in the final I'm blaming it on being given the away dressing room. I mean, come on!!

Whatever shit can happen it will always be us at the end of it. We are the 'home team' ffs.

Ridiculous.

If we really win this damn cup, all will be so sweet slapping these bias and agenda-driven twats.

Who gives a shit. If the dressing room is the thing that makes or breaks us we don't deserve to win.
