So you can’t get a ticket to the final? Well it’s not the end of the world. Here is why you should still come to Milan and support the team at the Atlético Fan Zone.
It has been estimated that of the 60,000 fans (from both clubs) that travelled to Lisbon in 2014 only half actually had tickets. Because of this Fan Zones are set up. 15,000 Rojiblancos cheered on the team from the fan zone in Lisbon. Free to get in they have an absolutely amazing atmosphere. A huge screen is provided for fans to watch the match. Bars for drink as well as places to buy food.
Check out this video of the fan zone in Lisbon when Godín scored:
We now know where the fan zones for Milan are going to be. Atletico fans will be at Piazza Duca d’Aosta just in front of the Centrale station. Real fans will be a good five kilometres away at Via del Burchiello. In Lisbon they were a mere one and half kilometres away. Interestingly the Real fan zone is eerily near the Atletico Madrid player’s hotel.
Here is a handy little map of where the fan zones are in Milan:
From Thursday 26th May 2016 the Champions League will be very apparent in the city as the ‘Champions League Festival’ rolls in to town. It is said to be located in front of the famous Duomo (cathedral) where there will be music, events, games of football including a ‘legends’ game and last minute chances to win tickets to the match itself. Details on this are sparse but when they come out we will be sure to bring them to you.
We at AtleticoFans.com are taking a number of our team to Milan and are planning our first ever meet up. At midday on the day of the final we will be meeting at the Duomo.
