Liverpool and Tottenham fans face EYE-WATERING £20,000 cost for Champions League final bed

Prices for flights and accommodation shot up last week as both teams came through an all-English final.

It has led to claims of profiteering by companies and fans have reacted angrily on social media.

Any supporters still on the lookout for somewhere to crash ahead of the final at Atletico Madrid’s Wanda Metropolitano will be feeling a little faint at the latest prices.

The cost of accommodation now appears to be affordable for oil tycoons and the super rich.

One hotel is offering their junior suite for 9,999 euros (£8,671) a night and their luxury suite is going for 20,000 euros (£17,344).

The Wellington Hotel in the upmarket Madrid neighbourhood of Salamanca has bumped up their prices with demand sky high.

The junior suite, 40 square metres, offers a double bed, or two singles, a small seating area and breakfast is included.

The hotel’s website says the suite is usually available for prices starting from 378 euros (£327) per night.

A junior suite with a terrace that normally costs 466 euros (£404) per night has more than doubled to 10,500 euros (£9,105) for June 1, the night of the game.

The price is for four people and there are two bathrooms, while the two bedrooms are decorated in a “classic style”.

Last season Liverpool fans had to travel all the way to Kiev, in the Ukraine for the Champions League final.

They complained they had to travel so far but now some supporters say they would rather be going back there than put up with the “profiteering”.

One Twitter user wrote: “Having been there, Kiev seemed to be a s*** choice to host the final last year.

“Not anymore looking back at the insane prices for flights, accommodation and tickets to Madrid now.

“Insane how many people want to travel now due to its easy accessibility from all over the world.”
