    Advice for fans travelling to Spain for the UEFA Champions League Final between Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur FC on Saturday 1 June 2019.

    Date: Saturday 1 June 2019

    Venue: Metropolitano Stadium, Madrid

    Kick off time: 9pm (local time)

    As well as this page, check out our general travel advice
    Passports and visas

    Lost or stolen passport?

    The British Consulate Madrid will be running an exceptional out-of-hours service on Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 June. If your passport is lost or stolen, call +34 91 714 6300 as soon as possible for advice on how to obtain an Emergency Travel Document and for Consulate opening hours.


    • British nationals don’t need a visa to travel to Spain, but your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. No additional period of validity beyond this is required
    • remember your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is valid for Spain, but you should still take out travel insurance, even if you’re only going for one night - it could save you a lot of money if you get into difficulties
    • you must provide ID (your passport) if requested by a police officer. The police have the right to hold you at a police station until your identity is confirmed
    • always take care of your passport, as getting a replacement is costly and time-consuming. Remember to keep a photocopy or scanned copy of your passport somewhere safe. It is advisable to have a photo of your passport on your mobile phone, send a copy to your email and carry a photocopy of your passport in the event you don’t have your passport on you
    • if you lose your passport, you’ll need to apply for an Emergency Travel Document online

    Getting to the stadium

    Stadium address

    Metropolitano Stadium Av. de Luis Aragonés, 4 28022 Madrid
    The recommended route for supporters to reach the Metropolitano Stadium is by public transport such as the Madrid metro. There will be no public parking facilities available at or near the stadium for private cars, coaches, motorbikes, mopeds, bicycles or scooters. Download the official Champions League Final leaflet for detailed information about Fan Zones and recommended metro lines to get to the stadium for both sets of supporters.
    Fan Zones

    Both Fan Zones will have activities, food, drink and music during the day of the match. The Fan Zones will close at 6pm when supporters with tickets will be expected to start making their way to the stadium and those without tickets to local bars to watch the game live.
    Liverpool’s Fan Zone will be in Felipe II square(also known as Salvador Dalí square) in Madrid on match day. The nearest Metro stop for Liverpool fans is Goya Station where you can take a direct train on Line 2 (red line) to Las Rosas. There is a short walk to the stadium from Las Rosas station.
    Tottenham’s Fan Zone will be in Colon Square in Madrid on match day. The nearest Metro stop for Tottenham fans is Alonso Martinez Station where you can get a direct train on Line 5 (green line) to Canillejas. There is a short walk to the stadium from Canillejas station.
    Please arrive at the stadium early as entry will be slow due to the exhaustive security checks that will be carried out. The outer perimeter of the stadium opens at 4pm and entry to the stadium itself will be from 6pm.
    There will also be a UEFA Champions League Festival in the centre of Madrid on the days running up to and on the day of the match. This Festival includes various football-related activities and concerts.
    Supporters without tickets

    There will be NO live screening of the match in the Fan Zones or Festival areas. Fans should not travel with the assumption that they will be able to get a ticket on arrival. Ticket touting is illegal in Spain and penalties include heavy fines. There will also be two lines of checks on tickets at the stadium. However, if you are in Madrid on 1 June, you will not be short of options to watch the game live though as Madrid is a city that loves football, so there will be plenty of bars showing the game.
    At the match

    • Tottenham fans with general tickets will access the Metropolitano Stadium through gate 17, located in the North end of the stadium (FONDO NORTE)
    • Liverpool fans with general tickets will access the Metropolitano Stadium through gate 3, located in the South end of the stadium (FONDO SUR)
    • access to the stadium for the Champions League final will be slow. There will be exhaustive ticket checks at various checkpoints before getting to the stadium, including body searches before and after getting through the turnstiles. To avoid a last minute bottleneck you should get to the stadium early - doors will be open for supporters three hours before kick-off
    • anyone who is obviously drunk or bearing racist insignia will be denied access to the stadium. Banners bearing political slogans will not be permitted inside the stadium
    • flares, fireworks, alcohol, cans, glass, bottle tops or containers over 1/2 litre are not allowed in the stadium. Soft drinks and food are available inside the stadium
    • one set of supporters may be kept behind for around 20-30 minutes after the match to allow the other set of fans to disperse. This will be decided by the Spanish Police on match day

    Tips

    • as in any other city beware of pickpockets and bag snatchers at airports, railway stations, around the town centre and when using public transport such as the metro. Only carry what you need and leave spare cash and valuables in hotel safety deposits
    • Madrid’s weather in June can be very hot and sunny with temperatures often over 30ºC (86ºF). It is advisable to avoid being directly in the sun at midday and late afternoon unless you use sun cream and head protection
    • in Madrid, drinking alcohol in the street and on the metro is illegal and you can be fined or arrested for doing so. Letting off flares around the city (including Fan Zones) is illegal. The Spanish Police have the right to intervene and confiscate flares, and can deny access to the match if any these laws are violated. For your own safety and that of others, please follow instructions from the police at all times
    • police officers have the right to stop people from taking photos or filming if they consider that their personal security or that of a police operation or secured area could be compromised as a result. Doing so can be met with severe penalties.
    • please keep tickets to the match securely in your possession. It has been known for thieves to target ticket holders to steal and then sell on the black market. If tickets are lost or stolen, they will not be re-printed and you will not gain access to the stadium
    • Spanish Police in collaboration with the clubs will be launching a service called FIT (Fan Information Team) the day before the match on Twitter (@FITPolicia). This will be an information channel in English providing fans with real time news about the event, general information, security messages, etc. Please note that this will not be an emergency channel. See below for contact details for the emergency services
    • please visit the official Champions League Final webpage regularly for any updates, in particular practical information for fans travelling to Madrid
    • like all major cities, Madrid could be a target for terrorist attacks. The Spanish authorities take measures to protect visitors, but you should be vigilant at all times and follow their instructions. The advice from UK Counter Terrorism Policing is that if you are caught up in an incident anywhere OUTSIDE of a stadium, If there is an incident INSIDE a stadium, listen carefully to the PA system and follow the directions of staff. If told to evacuate, do not wait around to film on your mobile but move quickly away from the stadium to allow clear access for emergency services. Read our travel advice on terrorism in Spain
