image for Champions League Final Venue Switched At Last Minute Without Manchester United Fans Being Told!
Barca fans queue outside the unnamed stadium tonight

There was real drama in Rome this afternoon, after supporters of English champions Manchester United discovered, just hours before the kick-off for their Champions League Final showdown with Spanish giants, FC Barcelona, that the venue had dramatically been changed at the last minute!

The match, originally scheduled to take place at the Stadio Olimpico at 7.45pm tonight, was changed to an alternate venue in Spain last week, but UEFA officials kept the news from the United supporters, who were not wanted at the game, leaving more than 50,000 of them stranded in Italy.

Barcelona fans were a little thin on the ground around Rome today, something not lost on eagle-eyed United supporters.
One of them, John Spunc, from Cheetham Hill, said:

"We're outnumbering the bastards 50,000 to 0! I wonder where the' all are!"

At the same moment John was dribbling those words out of his drunken chops, the Barca fans, who had been tipped-off last week, were amassing in southern Spain armed with flags, banners and sombreros, ready for a routine victory, in a trouble-free stadium devoid of anybody English.
