And they will also be well supported from afar, with giant screens erected at the club’s academy stadium.

The venue, situated next door to Etihad Stadium, hosts academy and WSL games, and has a capacity of 7,000.

City are now selling tickets for £5, with drinks and snacks included.

And fans will be able to look forward to appearances from club legends.

The event will adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Tottenham staged a similar event for the 2019 final, when the Lilywhites sold out their new stadium to watch the Madrid showpiece on big screens.

Fans of both City and Chelsea have been left bemused by Uefa’s ticket prices.

Split into four separate categories, admission could cost as much as £515, with other seats priced at £386.50, £154.50 and £60.

City owner Sheikh Mansour endeared himself to fans, by paying for ticket holders’ plane fares.

And Blues supremo Roman Abramovich also subsidised fans’ costs.

But Chelsea still sent back 800 tickets of their allocation, due to the global situation coupled with the outrageous prices.
