Uncategorised UEFA Settle Liverpool Fans Over 2022 UCL Final Experience

Liverpool fans who filed personal injury lawsuits against UEFA over their experiences at the 2022 Champions League final in Paris reached a final settlement on Friday.

On May 28, when Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 1-0, thousands of Liverpool supporters were barred into the Stade de France, leading to a 36-minute delay as footage of French police deploying tear gas on crowds outside the stadium surfaced.

Liverpool fans, represented by Pogust Goodhead and Bingham Long, will receive a sum as compensation for the difficulties and challenges they faced,” UEFA said in a statement adding the terms of the settlement will remain confidential.

The Merseyside club’s supporters were first held accountable for the pandemonium by the European football governing body, which later issued an apology after an independent study was made public last year.

Afterwards, UEFA established a reimbursement plan; however, Real Madrid rejected it as “insufficient” and refused to contribute, therefore the impacted supporters filed a lawsuit.

Following the incident, the governing body also started putting the Independent Review’s recommendations into practice, stepping up security, and involving spectators in the preparation and execution of the event.
