After their flight to Paris was canceled due to a software glitch, Liverpool FC football fans took a creative route to the Champions League final against Real Madrid.
Without a ticket to Paris: As the British newspapers “Liverpool Echo” and “Mirror” reported, 13 supporters rented a speedboat without further ado. The curious thing is that none of these fans had tickets for the final, but they still wanted to be there in the French capital.
Long queues: Hours of queues formed in front of the ferries from Dover to Calais due to the simultaneous start of the holiday season on the island. According to the BBC, people were advised to “bring enough food and water”.
Paris is red: Meanwhile, Paris was firmly in the hands of Liverpool fans on Saturday. Around 60,000 of them had traveled to France, although only 20,000 tickets had officially been distributed to Reds fans. The French sports daily “L’Equipe” ran the headline that Anfield is currently on the Seine.
