Tickets fetching £5,000
All tickets for the match available through official channels have sold out, and those being offered on secondary websites were yesterday starting from around £800, rising to more than £5,000 per person for seats with hospitality. Organisers have warned that tickets bought from unauthorised channels could be forgeries and may not be accepted on other grounds.
Pose with trophy in Stratford
No ticket for Wembley? Football fans will find plenty to make up for it in Stratford at the Champions Festival, including a star-studded five-a-side tournament – and it won’t cost a penny. The four-day Uefa event, which runs until Sunday evening, includes a Champions League museum, a chance to have a photo taken with the trophy and skills clinics for children.
Figo and Co play 5-a-side
Saturday sees the Ultimate Champions match (kick-off 12.30pm), which promises cameos from greats such as Luis Figo, Fabio Cannavaro, Cafu and former Premier League stars Robert Pires, Gianfranco Zola, Youri Djorkaeff, Freddie Ljungberg and Steve McManaman. The event is being held at the International Quarter, next to the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Hollywood stars Will and Jaden Smith are, bizarrely, staging the coin toss.
Soak it up in central London
Former Barcelona, Arsenal and Holland star Giovanni van Bronckhorst will give his thoughts on the final today at Trafalgar Square, where fans can also watch a 3D projection of some of the European Cup’s greatest moments, from 9.30pm.
