Passing the Buck Stops Here

No More Lies From the moment UEFA displayed the message on the giant screens inside Stade de France on Saturday: Due to the late arrival of fans, the match has been delayed, we knew what was happening. The false narrative had begun. UEFA and the French authorities quickly changed tack to say actually it was because of fans turning up without tickets. European football’s governing body had apparently been given this information by local media and ran with it. Not for a second did they think to check its validity.  Even before the game had kicked [...]

CL Final Disgrace

Chaos in Paris Once again Liverpool supporters, and we are hearing, Real Madrid supporters, have felt the disorganisation and shambolic mismanagement of a major final by UEFA. Their comments may have changed before the match, but what remained consistent was their narrative that fans were to blame. Fans were not late. Many began arriving more than two-and-a-half hours before the scheduled kick-off time. They had legitimate tickets but failed to gain entry. The Merseyside Police representative in Paris made it clear: “I can only describe it as the worst European match I've ever worked or experienced. [...]

Champions League final tickets Yesterday, Thursday 19 May, Spirit of Shankly met with the Club as part of ongoing dialogue over tickets for the Champions League final and allocations in general. Firstly, we would like to thank the club for being so transparent and walking us through these ticket allocations at such a critical and busy time of the season. None of us wants to discuss such matters when we’ve all got Sunday to look forward to, but we don’t underestimate the level of concern for some of our members. The club confirmed that they expect [...]

An Open Letter to UEFA

Champions League Final Liverpool FC have reached the Champions League final. Again. In Paris, against Real Madrid. Again. For our fans, it’s another European final jaunt, the climax of the season, the hope of winning again. For some fans anyway. For thousands there will be no trip to Paris because there will be a shortage of tickets. Again. Stade de France, the venue for the final, holds 75,000. LFC and Madrid, each receive shy of 20,000. In total, loyal supporters will make up just over 52 percent of the capacity crowd. A free-for-all public ballot accounts [...]
