Ticket sales to the general public have closed for the 2009 UEFA Super Cup match in Monaco on Friday 28 August.
The international general public ticket sales process began – exclusively via uefa.com – on Tuesday 7 July and ended today, 20 July. The allocation will now be decided by lottery, with each valid application entering a ballot, independently 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 Friday 24 July if they have been successful or not. Candidates will be able to check the status of their application by logging into the ticket portal on uefa.com from 24 July.
The UEFA Super Cup match between FC Barcelona and FC Shakhtar Donetsk takes place at the Stade Louis II from 20.45CET on 28 August. Stadium capacity for the meeting of the European champions and UEFA Cup winners will be 18,000, with 75 per cent of seats reserved for the general public and supporters of the two clubs.
General public tickets must be picked up by the applicant from the collection point at the stadium's main entrance as they will not be shipped by post. Further details will be communicated to the winners. The applicant should present a copy of their confirmation email together with valid ID. Barcelona and Shakhtar will distribute their allocations directly to their fans.
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 via 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.
