Tips on how to buy Champions League tickets for the round of 16

The tough draws for the teams can also be difficult on the home fans, where prices on the secondary market can be quite high due to the low supply and the high demand coming from not only from home fans but also from the loyal fan base abroad.

The Champions League has become one of the most convenient tournaments in the world and surpasses almost any other tournament in terms of money and interest that it incurs.

So in order to face that demand, here are some key tips on how to buy and save money on Champions league tickets:

Timing is everything:

When to buy your ticket is a great question, ticket prices don’t always drop when the event is nearing, what you need to do is pay attention to the number of tickets that are out there on all the different ticket markets, make sure to take into account if the stadium is a large one or a small one. For example, Anfield Stadium is quite a small stadium and it’s unlikely that ticket prices will drop, so you will need to track the market and hit it at the right time.

Buying as a group can be costly:

Buying tickets as a large group can come at a price, usually, prices are cheaper for seating in pairs, triples will be hard to come by, and single tickets will be much cheaper. Your best bet is to split your purchase and buy your tickets between a few different listings and groupings rather than trying to buy all the tickets from one single listing, this alone can save you hundreds of pounds.

Catch an away Match:

If you are not one of the lucky season cardholders then a ticket might be expensive for a huge clash at home. But what about travelling to a different country?

Away tickets can be substantially cheaper and you can actually make a trip out of it to a great destination that you were not planning on visiting.

Look for the opposite side of the home teams bench

Many time ticket prices will actually be more expensive on the team’s side. Let’s take for example the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium. The Tribune side can be some times more expensive by almost 30-50 euro per ticket just because its the opposite side of the bench. Its almost always the case in every large stadium where the team ticket office will try and capitalise their revenue, but in actuality, the view will be the same and you can save a few pounds along the way.

Buy tickets on a great platform that doesn’t add any fees and helps fans discover the best ticket deals on the market:
