Now that Tottenham Hotspur are in the Champions League final, a lot of people are wondering about how to get tickets to the match on June 1 in Madrid. We don’t really know yet either as Spurs haven’t released any information about their ticket allocation or the process to purchase them, though sources are claiming that both Spurs and Liverpool have been given only 16k tickets each for their supporters.

But if you’re a UK resident, you may have another option on how to watch the match along with 62,000 of your closest friends. The Times is reporting that Spurs are exploring the possibility of opening the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to fans for a local viewing party. The match would be streamed on the giant screens in the stadium — the biggest screens of any stadium in Europe — and would be another opportunity for fans to interact with the newest and best stadium in the UK (and also presumably buy a lot of bottom-filling beers).

The Times writes that the decision hasn’t been finalized as the club still needs to coordinate the event with Haringey Council and the Metropolitan Police. Still, this would be an amazing option if you can’t get tickets in Madrid or can’t afford them. It’s a little more expansive than crowding in your local pub, but imagine the atmosphere!
