Anderlecht Charged By UEFA To Refund Bayern Fans For High-priced Tickets

Belgian football club Anderlecht has been ordered by UEFA to partially refund Bayern Munich fans for exorbitant ticket sold to them in their last Champions League match in November 2017.

The club sold tickets to fans at £86 for the fixture which was described by UEFA as too high and hence the refund order. Anderlecht is now under pressure to pay back £26 within 15 days to every fan who paid to watch the match which Bayern won 2 - 1.

Bayern fans protested during the game after making the trip to Brussels, throwing fake €500 notes onto the pitch during play.


UEFA have already fined Bayern £18,000 and charged the club over an "illicit banner" along with the "throwing of objects."

A statement from the UEFA read: "RSC Anderlecht is ordered to contact FC Bayern M√ľnchen within 15 days to compensate their supporters with an amount of €30 per ticket to those away fans located in the upper tier section."

The amount of fans requiring the £26 refund for the tickets sees Anderlecht facing a bill in the region of £24,000.
