Atletico Madrid, Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid will each contest an eagerly anticipated Champions League semi-final – but €900 for a ticket?
Carlo Ancelotti’s men were drawn against reigning European champions Bayern Munich and they will be hoping to inflict revenge on Pep Guardiola’s men – dubbed ‘The Black Beast’ by the Spanish media - for eliminating them at the same stage in 2012.
The two clubs boast an array of attacking talent, with Robben, Ribery, Mandzukic up against Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema in what promises to be one of the most exciting two-legged fixtures of the season.
But, is it really worth the staggering €900 on offer? For the same price, your average Mansfield Town supporter could probably buy a season ticket for the next decade.
Fortunately for Real Madrid’s general public, there are tickets available at a far more economical price.
The cheapest ticket for Santiago Bernabeu’s April 23rd clash is €70, with the most expensive in general spots – non-VIP – rising up to €335.
Those who do wish to enjoy the Santiago Bernabeu’s commodities in the VIP zone, however, will cost between €400 and the rather staggering €900 on offer.
For luxurious Madrid and the feeling of royalty it projects, in reality, it is in principal just 90 minutes of 22 players running around kicking a ball.
