The match between Villarreal CF and Liverpool FC has been declared a high-risk game

The State Commission against Violence, Racism, Xenophobia and Intolerance in Sport has declared the match that Villarreal CF will play against Liverpool FC on Tuesday 3rd May at the Estadio de la Cerámica, corresponding to the second leg of the UEFA Champions League semi-finals, as a high-risk game.

Following the instructions of the authorities, the club will adopt the following methods aiming to preserve security and stop fans from both sides from mixing.

  • Villarreal CF has provided Liverpool FC with the tickets for away fans, for the English side to hand them out as they see appropriate.
  • Villarreal CF will not sell matchday tickets to away fans.
  • Villarreal has given priority to season-ticket holders in terms of tickets, which was the case in previous rounds of the UEFA Champions League, with season-ticket holders being able to purchase them at a reduced price.
  • From 27th April, the club will put tickets on sale to the general public, with tickets not being sold to people from England.
  • Selling on tickets is a crime. Villarreal CF will deny access to away fans who try to enter with tickets in home sections, and the club has the right to take appropriate actions against season-ticket holders who sell on their tickets to away fans.
