International ticket sales have closed for the 2012 UEFA Champions League final on Saturday 19 May.
The general public ticket sales process began – exclusively via UEFA.com – on Thursday 1 March and ended today, Friday 16 March.
The allocation will now be decided by lottery, with each valid application entering a ballot, regardless of the time of submission within the application period. Successful candidates will be entitled to a maximum of two tickets.
Applicants will be informed by email by Monday 2 April if they have been successful or not. Candidates will be able to check the status of their application by logging into the ticket portal from 2 April. Tickets will then be delivered by registered post no later than the end of April.
Online applications will be checked to ensure that anyone banned from attending football games is unsuccessful in any attempt to purchase tickets.
UEFA underlines that no tickets are being distributed through agencies or brokers. UEFA also encourages fans not to be lured into deals with touts who not only demand exorbitant prices, but often are not in possession of the tickets they purport to have for sale.
