Nyon:

The most expensive tickets for the Europa League final cost less than the cheapest tickets generally available for the Champions League final.

UEFA's Category 1 tickets for the Europa League final in Dublin went on sale Monday for €135 ($185), with all fans able to buy Category 4 seats for €50 ($68).

UEFA angered fans in England last week by asking for €175 ($235) for the cheapest tickets available to neutral fans at Wembley Stadium for the Champions League final. Fans of the two finalists can get some seats for €95 ($130).

The best seats at Wembley cost €350 ($480) and all tickets are subject to a €31 ($40) administration fee, which was singled out for criticism by supporters' groups.

UEFA did not specify what it would charge to handle applications for tickets to see its second-tier competition final.

Europa League prices are lower than for last year's final played in Hamburg, Germany, which ranged from €55-€150 with a €30 fee.

UEFA said last week it set prices according to market prices in the host city.

Ireland's debt-ridden economy was bailed out last November and unemployment has tripled in the past three years.

The Europa League final is to be played on May 18 at the 51,000-capacity venue formerly known as Lansdowne Road.
