​Over 2000 ​Real Madrid fans have returned their tickets of the UEFA Champions League final against ​Liverpool in Ukraine, as per reports in Spain.


Spanish outlet ​AS reports that the logistical complication and inflated costs in getting to the Ukrainian capital has seen many of those allocated with a final ticket to return it to the club.


The report reveals that 24,268 fans applied for the 12,802 tickets that were allocated to the 12-time European Cup winners.


However, over 2,000 fans have returned their tickets due to issues and complexities in organising travel and accommodation in Kiev and the ​Los Blancos have decided not to put those tickets on re-sale.



Statements reported by the media said, "Given the limited time available in organising both transport to and from Kiev coupled with the already complicated accommodation situation it’s feasible that Real Madrid may not utilise their UEFA allocated match ticket quota."


Pointing out a previous instance, the statement continued, "A similar situation arose in the Europa League final where Atletico Madrid failed to use over 1,300 of their allocation for the Lyon final. In the case of the match in the French city it was fear of problems with the hardcore Marseille fans combined with the midweek kick-off that wore cited as deterrents by the Atleti fans."


​Real Madrid face Liverpool on May 26 hoping to win their third straight Champions League and fourth in five years.
