UEFA, football’s European governing body, has announced that it will be implementing a special refund scheme for Liverpool fans affected by events in the lead-up to last year’s Champions League final against Real Madrid at the Stade de France in Paris.

Refunds will be available to all fans with tickets for gates A, B, C, X, Y and Z, where the most difficult circumstances were reported. Additionally, all fans who, according to the access control data, did not enter the stadium before 9pm local time (the originally scheduled kick-off time), or who were not able to enter the stadium at all, will be eligible for a refund.

UEFA will also offer refunds to all fans who purchased accessibility tickets along with those of their accompanying persons. Given the criteria outlined by UEFA today (Tuesday), the refund scheme covers all of Liverpool’s 19,618 ticket allocation for the final.
