Manchester City will face Inter Milan in the 2022/23 UEFA Champions League final on Saturday, June 10.

Inter got the better of bitter rivals AC Milan in the last four, while Man City knocked out the defending Champions League holders with a 4-0 second-leg thumping in the second leg, for a 5-1 aggregate goal triumph.

This will be the 68th final of the Champions League and the 31st edition since the rebranding of the European Cup. Real Madrid have won the competition more than any other team, lifting the trophy 14 times.

The Sporting News looks at how much tickets will cost fans who will attend the Champions League final.

Where is the Champions League final?

The 2023 Champions League final was initially meant to be played at Wembley Stadium in England, but the COVID-19 pandemic caused a change in venues.

The final will now be played at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey. The 2021 final was scheduled to take place at this stadium, but was moved two weeks before the match due to coronavirus issues in the European city.

This is the second time the Champions League final will be played at this venue. The first occasion was in 2005 when Liverpool completed a miraculous comeback from 3-0 to beat AC Milan on penalties.

How to buy Champions League final tickets?

Fans of Inter Milan and Manchester City can buy tickets for the Champions League final through their respective clubs to get seating with their fellow fans.

Tickets for the final can also be bought through UEFA's official ticket portal, for which the general public must sign up for before receiving a chance to purchase seats.

Some tickets will also reappear on resale sites such as StubHub, but the prices of those tickets will be far higher than the value of those being sold by UEFA and the two clubs.

How much do 2023 Champions League final tickets cost?

UEFA announced that ticket prices for the 2023 Champions League have been frozen, meaning it will be the same price for each four categories as it was in the 2022 final in Paris.

The cheapest ticket for the match on June 10 will cost £60 ($75), while the most expensive Category 1 ticket at Ataturk Olympic Stadium is £598 ($747).

The 2022 final between Liverpool and Real Madrid was overshadowed by security failures outside the stadium before the match started. UEFA are working with Liverpool to help reimburse fans, while Madrid have rejected UEFA's plans.

Category Price
Category 1 £598 / $747
Category 2 £425 / $530
Category 3 £156 / $195
Category 4 £60 / $75

Ticket allocation for the Champions League final

Just the like final last season, both Inter and Manchester City have been allocated 20,000 tickets each. The Ataturk Olympic Stadium can hold up to 72,000 fans, almost 10,000 fewer than the Stade de France.

Of the 72,000 places, there will be 47,200 tickets available for the general public to purchase directly from the UEFA website, while the remaining seats will go the local organising structure, UEFA, UEFA's member associations, commercial partners, and broadcasters.
