Dear Barcelona, why does a ticket for the Champions League game against Roma cost 90 euros?

Italian newspaper Il Romanista has written an open letter to Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu protesting about the price of Champions League tickets.

Roma have been drawn against the Blaugrana at the quarter-final phase but ticket pricing has not gone down well in the Eternal City.

Fans planning to attend the away fixture at the Camp Nou to support the Giallorossi will be charged 90 euros per ticket.

 

“Dear Barcelona, I am writing to you about the Champions League,” the letter, which was published in Catalan, began.

“In the hours after the draw, the prices of a flight from Rome to Barcelona, which are usually very cheap, also rose in price along with hotels too.

“In addition to these expenses, a family would have to add 180, 270 or 260 euros to sit in the top tier at the Camp Nou.

“You have to understand that in this way, supporting a football team becomes a luxury which is inaccessible for most fans.”

Given the Blaugrana’s famous mes que un club slogan, the letter also called upon them to prove why that is the case.

“Demonstrate that you are ‘more than a club’. We trust and hope that this request will be taken into consideration,” the letter added.

“It would be the best move that could be made because football is like freedom and we want people to participate, otherwise even winning loses all sense.”
