Real Madrid has rejected what it described as UEFA’s insufficient and restricted offer of compensation for supporters affected by trouble outside the Stade de France in Paris, during last season’s Champions League final.

The European champions, who won the trophy in the chaos-hit final against Liverpool on May 28, 2022, which saw fans funnelled by police into overcrowded bottlenecks and hit with tear gas, said they would not cooperate with the European football governing body’s plan.

UEFA had said it would reimburse all Liverpool supporters as well as other spectators who were affected by trouble, with the game kicking off 37 minutes late in the French capital as fans struggled to enter the stadium.

Madrid in a statement said it would provide assistance to supporters who experienced any kind of harm at the game to make appropriate claims against UEFA.

UEFA initially tried to pin the blame for the chaos on Liverpool fans arriving late despite thousands having been held for hours outside the stadium before kick-off.
