England fans could have to pay close to £900 for Euro 2020 final tickets

England v Norway - International Friendly

As the Champions League final approaches, UEFA have not exactly covered themselves in glory. 

European football's governing body have allocated Tottenham and Liverpool just 16,613 tickets for their clash in Madrid, with some of those costing as much as £513. 

Then, there is the debacle in Baku, with Arsenal and Chelsea's excitement at reaching the Europa League final having been dampened considerably by its laughable location. 

It's fair to say English football fans are not exactly enamoured with UEFA over all this. Both the Spirit of Shankly group and the Tottenham Hotspur Supporters' Trust have publicly voiced their displeasure. 

Both organisations feel that ordinary, matchgoing fans who spend thousands supporting their team every year are being priced out of, or denied altogether, the chance to witness the most crucial game of the season - or for Spurs, arguably the biggest match in their history. 

But are UEFA actually listening? You suspect not, as this is the way they have run the big occasions for quite some time. 

Take a look at next year's European Championship ticket prices, and it makes concerning reading. 

The Sun report that watching the final is set to cost almost £900.

If England do reach the showpiece at Wembley, and there is optimism that they might after the exploits of Gareth Southgate's side at the 2018 World Cup, a lot of their supporters simply aren't going to be able to afford to go.

On the bright side, UEFA have at least announced that 82% of tickets will go on sale to the general public, rather than to corporate partners. 

Even the semi-final will see Category 1 tickets sold for £522, so anyone who bought a ticket for the last four and the final could be set back over £1,351. It's ludicrous. 

England will be playing in Group D and even their earlier games will cost £162. 

It increasingly feels like football is broken and we're reaching a point of no return. 

What's the most you'd pay for a Euro 2020 ticket? Have your say in the comments.
