UEFA has announced a cap on tickets for away fans in both the Champions League and Europa League.

An emergency panel says that traveling supporters can not be charged any higher than approximately $50 for UEL fixtures and $79 for UCL matches.

The prices represent “the level of the lowest category ticket price of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League finals respectively.”

The move comes after a public plea from the supporters’ trusts of Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, and Liverpool, who had loads of problems getting tickets at last year’s finals.

UEFA president Aleksandr Ceferin said:

“Fans are the lifeblood of the game and those who follow their teams to away matches must have access to tickets at a reasonable price, bearing in mind the cost they have already had to incur for their trip.”
