Uefa is to refund Liverpool fans who had tickets for the Champions League final held in Paris last year.

A recent independent report that found Uefa bears “primary responsibility” for the chaotic scenes before the game against Real Madrid.

Fans were sprayed with tear gas outside the stadium as kick-off was delayed by over half an hour.

Uefa said the refund scheme “covers all of the Liverpool FC ticket allocation for the final that is 19,618 tickets”

Liverpool were also part of the process of securing refunds for their fans and, as supporters bought tickets from them directly rather than Uefa, the club will administer the process.

Uefa and French authorities initially blamed ticketless fans for the events outside the stadium.

The report, which Uefa commissioned after the 28 May final, said there was “no evidence” to support the “reprehensible” claims.

The report also said “it is remarkable no one lost their life”, adding: “The panel has concluded that Uefa, as event owner, bears primary responsibility for failures which almost led to disaster.”
