Chelsea allocated 17,500 tickets for Champions League final

Blues supporters and their Bayern Munich counterparts will receive just over 25% of the seats available at the Allianz Arena each for their crunch match on May 19
Chelsea have been allocated 17,500 tickets for the Champions League final on May 19, which accounts for just over 25% of the seats available at the Allianz Arena in Munich.

The Blues' opponents, Bayern Munich, have been allocated the same amount and have been overwhelmed with over one million requests for tickets, according to reports.

Bayern will hold a ballot to decide whom among those requesting tickets will be able to attend the match next month.

The tickets available to Chelsea supporters are priced between €70 (£57) and €370 (£302). Blues supporters will be housed in the north end of the stadium.

After members of the Uefa away scheme have received priority on the best-priced tickets available, Chelsea season ticket holders will be able to purchase one ticket each.

Any remaining tickets will go on general sale, with priority afforded according to the club's loyalty point system.

Chelsea beat Barcelona 3-2 on aggregate to progress to the final, with Bayern Munich defeating Real Madrid on penalties after a 3-3 aggregate draw.
