1,373 FC Barcelona supporters have applied for tickets for the Champions League quarter final against Atlético Madrid at the Vicente Calderón on Wednesday April 13, which is fewer than the club’s total allocation, meaning that there will be no need for a draw to be held among the applicants.
All tickets are personal and non-transferable. They bear the name of the purchaser, whose identity will be checked on entrance to the stadium. From Thursday, the club will be contacting all applicants to inform them of the ticket collection process.
The FCBViatges travel agency is offering cheap travel options from Barcelona. The coach trip costs 29.50 euros, while same-day return trips on the AVE high speed train are selling for 99 euros.
The club is also offering deals for supporters club members (35.50 euros by coach and 145 in the AVE) and non-member companions (44 euros by coach and 181 by AVE).
Applications must be made before April 11 at 5.00pm CET for the coach trip and April 8 at 12.00pm CET for the train.
