UEFA has confirmed that tickets for this year’s Champions League final will be launched via a ballot system, with top-tier seats costing €600 (£512/$679).

The ticket application window opens today (Thursday) and will remain open for one week until March 21.

Fans will be required to enter the ballot in order to obtain seats, but not on a first-come, first-served basis.

Those who are successful in their applications will be notified on April 5.

The UEFA Champions League Final is being held at the 63,500-capacity Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid.

The governing body for European football has made 38,000 tickets available for finalists’ supporters and the general public.

The cheapest Category 4 ticket will cost €70, with Category 3 tickets priced at €180. The top two tiers are significantly more expensive at €450 and €600.

A youth package, which includes one adult and one child under 14, will cost €140.
