The French authorities have recruited about 7,000 policemen to monitor the fans during the upcoming final in the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis, where the number of Liverpool fans without tickets is expected to reach 40,000.
The match was originally scheduled in St. Petersburg, Russia, but the European Union decided to move it to the French capital after the Russian military attack on Ukraine.
Only 20,000 fans each from Liverpool and Real Madrid received tickets to enter the final stadium.
On the other hand, the Paris city authorities have prepared a wide fan zone for up to 45,000 Liverpool supporters along the “Cours de Vincennes”, a main street in the east of Paris, 10 kilometers from the final stadium.
“The aim is to make sure that things are going as well as possible,” Paris Deputy Mayor Emmanuel Gregoire explained.
The second fan zone is located in the northern suburb of Saint-Denis, where the stadium is located, for Real Madrid fans who obtained tickets before the match.
This fan zone will open to local fans after Real Madrid fans have moved to the stadium.
Alcoholic beverages will not be allowed in the area surrounding the match stadium, but fans will be allowed to drink during the match inside the stadium itself.
The Champs Elysees, one of Paris’ most popular tourist attractions, will be closed to English and Spanish fans during the afternoon on match day, and alcohol has been banned this weekend at either of the city’s two main airports, Charles de Gaulle and Orly.
Real Madrid is looking to enhance its record in the competition (13 titles), while Liverpool hopes to win its seventh title.
