Atletico fans in ticket frenzy for Chelsea clash

Champions League Pitch

Home tickets for Atletico Madrid's Champions League semi-final with Chelsea are almost completely sold out after hysterical interest.

Spanish newspaper AS reports that only 600 home tickets for Atletico Madrid's Champions League encounter with Chelsea remain.

Atletico have reached this stage of Europe's elite competition for the first time since 1974 and are also on course for their first domestic title since 1996.

The exploits of Diego Simeone's side have caused a fever pitch level of excitement amongst the fans, who are desperate for the chance to watch next Tuesday's game against Chelsea.

In the first 24 hours of ticket sales, AS reports that 13,000 were sold and now just 600 remain as tickets go on general sale.

The sought-after tickets will be priced at between £108 and £206 and fans are queuing for hours for the faint chance of getting their hands on them.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have announced that they will assist fans travelling to the away leg in Madrid by reducing prices by £20 a ticket.

Chelsea have an allocation of 3,071 for the match and the club stated its desire to thank fans for their support over the course of the season by giving a discount.
