Incredible delay of the final due to the chaos experienced with the English fans

The Champions League final between Real Madrid and Liverpool began at 9:37 p.m. due to a serious problem with the entrance to the Stade de France of the supporters of the English team and, as indicated by UEFA, “for security reasons”.

The match between the English and the Spanish was supposed to start at 9:00 p.m., but it had to be delayed — initially at 9:15 p.m. However, UEFA chose to start at 9:37 p.m. in order to solve the stadium access problems caused by Liverpool supporters.

A good part of the stands of the Stade Francia, which welcomes almost 80,000 spectators, were empty at the time originally scheduled for the start of the match. Some incidents with fans were recorded in the vicinity of the stadium and the police warned of several attempts to improperly exceed the security perimeter set up around the stadium.
