France blames ticket fraud for chaos in Champions League final

The French government has blamed the “industrial scale” ticket fraud for the chaotic scenes during the Champions League final in Paris.

It comes after up to 40,000 British fans went to the stadium without tickets or wearing fakes.

French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said the chaos of the event only came at the entrance of Liverpool supporters.

Liverpool FC have called for a formal UEFA inquiry into the organization of the event.

“If we don’t react to what has happened and learn lessons from it next time, people may not be so lucky,” said Liverpool Mayor Steve Rotheram.
