UEFA Champions League Final

21 May 2008 No Comment

The UEFA Champions League Final is being played right now. The event, similar in stature to the Super Bowl, is played at a neutral site stadium between the best two soccer clubs in Europe.

The Ultimate Sports Wife and I considered attending the event in Moscow since a Russian visa was included with your ticket to the match. However, at the time, ticket prices to the match were competing with Super Bowl ticket prices (approximately 1500 euro or $2,300 each). Although traveling to Moscow is cool, I would rather attend the Super Bowl for that price.

But over the past few weeks, the secondary market price to the match has declined greatly (500 euro or $750 each) since England fans decided it was too pricey to travel to the world’s most expensive city. The Champions League Final is a bargain at that price. Good luck finding a ticket that cheap next year when the game is held in Rome, Italy.

Another notable of the event is the 10:45 pm local start time. I believe that is one of the latest start times for any event which would add to the excitement.
