Chelsea face Manchester City in Porto in front of a limited capacity at the Estadio do Dragao, which is confirmed to be up to 16,500. The small number has unsurprisingly generated plenty of interest from both clubs.
On Wednesday, however, it was revealed that Chelsea had returned over 800 unsold tickets from their allocation of 5,800 – and their furious supporters’ group believes UEFA’s ticketing package is behind the storm.

The package included subsidised chartered flights out to Portugal for £200, and the scramble to ensure a seat for the showpiece also generated in a rush to pick up 2,800 tickets sold with independent travel.
But it is the charter deal that has led to the backlash, with UEFA savaged for apparently demanding any tickets not sold as part of the package to be returned to them.
UEFA, who are said to have been fully in control of the ticketing process, are alleged in a CST statement to have asked for the unsold tickets back ‘even if there was a demand for tickets by those supporters travelling independently’.
