The European football governing body UEFA has accused supporters who bought bogus tickets for the 35-minute delay in the Champions League final between Liverpool and Real Madrid at the Stade de France on Saturday.

“Thousands of supporters who had bought bogus tickets that did not operate in the turnstiles blocked the turnstiles at the Liverpool end in the lead-up to the game,” UEFA stated in a statement.

“As a result, there was a line of fans waiting to get in.” As a consequence, the game was postponed for 35 minutes to enable as many supporters with valid tickets as possible to attend.”
