Apology over high ticket prices for Champions League final

8:19 am on 22 April 2011

The president of European football Michel Platini has apologised for the high cost of tickets for this season's Champions League final at Wembley.

The cheapest tickets for the final in London next week cost $300 plus a $50 booking fee.

The cheapest package for one adult and one child is $680.

Platini concedes that's too high and UEFA will consider introducing a cheaper category for families for future finals.
