I don't think at this point you would have to worry about ticket sales. It would be played in a prime time viewing for Europe so mid afternoon US.

Just an idea.
It would be seen as purely a cash grab because you're essentially pricing fans out from watching their club play in a major competition by forcing them to travel across the globe purely to maximize profits.

I don't see any scenario where a CL final would be played in the US.

Liverpool supporters put pressure on the club to try and get UEFA to allot more tickets to supporters (both Real and Liverpool) vs the corporate packages. I don't want to think what they would do if they were told they have to travel stateside to see Liverpool play in a major cup final.

    Love this line:

    LeganÚs is a modest club based in a neighborhood of southern Madrid. The team finished 12th in the 22-team second division last season.

    I predict Top 4:

    Man C
    Chelsea
    Liverpool
    Spurs

    Nunez is unproven in the PL, we still have Salah but with Mane gone I think its going to hurt us down the line. We might get second and I think it'll be a one or two point difference between us and Chelsea but I don't see Liverpool dominating like they have in years past.

    See I think this will be like 2020 all over. Show up motivated and just fucking steamroll. Diaz with a full summer of training with the club. Salah on a new deal. Firmino healthy. Will need to keep the midfield healthy but even then, both Carvalho and Elliot could be starting in midfield by seasons end.

    With Nunez, I feel like literally anyone can score with Trent and Robbo pinging it in from the wings. Dude will just need to finish and he'll have 25 goals easy. It seems like they may play with a new shape to allow for the attack options so it won't just have to be him and Salah.

    I'm all for it being like 2020 again! I just think we will be off to a slow start. We have a tendency to stumble come Feb and that mixed with a slow start will see us third. Hope to be proven wrong though!

    Big yikes for united fans... Lose to Brighton 2-1 and are now down 4-0 at half to Brentford... If you look to your left you will see a wheel rolling by that has just come off

    Absolute disaster. Ragnick was run out of town but he was 100% correct when he said this team needs open heart surgery and ten new players. I was hoping for top six before the season started but top ten could now even be a stretch.

    I don't know how but United managed to make their 3rd game an absolute must win.

    It's not good. Marquee signing and the guy that's supposed to be putting goals in the net for us will now be out the next game, if not more. Just a stupid play.
