Champions League final tickets: Only 40,000 of 70,500 will be Juventus or Barcelona fans... and seats are selling for up to £12,000 each

24,500 went to sponsors, corporate partners and Uefa members

More than 400 million are estimated to tune into the Champions League final on 6 June.

But the average supporter of Juventus or Barcelona is highly unlikely to get a chance to watch the game in the flesh, after Uefa only allocated 20,000 seats to each side in the 70,500 Olympiastadion in Berlin.

With a further 6,000 going on general sale, that leaves a whopping 24,500 seats that have been set aside for sponsors, corporate partners and Uefa members.

With tickets no longer on sale officially, supporters will now have to shell out huge amounts if they want to attend the game.

There are plenty of tickets still available on ticket exchange websites, but a search by The Independent revealed the cheapest tickets being sold on ticket exchange websites are now costing more than £1,500 each for single Category 4 seats, with Category 1 tickets going for around £3,000.

If you don't want to go alone, a premium is being put on multiple tickets - we found a pair of Category 1 seats at the half-way line for £12,000 each.

Hospitality packages, originally priced from €2,450 (£1,768) are now fetching between £5,000 and £20,000 each.

If you had been quick and bought your tickets when they went on sale back in March, the face value was between €70 (£50) for Category 4 and €390 (£280) for Category 1.

Barcelona have averaged more than 70,000 people at their games at the Nou Camp this season, a stadium which holds almost 99,000.

Juventus average around 40,000 at their home matches but are easily the most well-supported and successful club in Italy.
