R fans are notorious for finding ways to follow their team in Europe and we’ve come up with some tips for all those heading to the Ukranian capital.
Here’s everything to bear in mind if you’re heading to Kiev.
The high flight prices are in part because Thomas Cook had to lease extra planes to meet the required capacity.
“Despite the significant challenges involved as a result of the limited availability of aircraft at this time, and the increasingly urgent need for a solution, this objective was met.
“Unfortunately, but also unavoidably, the aircraft was secured at a higher cost, which is reflected in the higher price for supporters.”
These are set to be limited due to the lack of available air slots into and out of Kyiv and these will be the last trips offered.
Thousands are doing day trips from all Liverpool, Manchester or London, while some fans have decided to travel via Dubai because it was cheaper going there and all the way back, than travelling through Europe.
Getting to the ground
Arrangements for how fans should make their way to the ground will be circulated in the coming days.
On this website fans can find hosts to stay with free of charge on the final night.
The website reads: “We are trying to spread the word for those fans traveling to the final game in Kiev that a large community of Ukrainian soccer fans and regular people have come together to offer free housing to fans, as Ukrainians are appalled by the skyrocketing hotel prices and last-minute cancellations in Kiev over the course of the final game.”

All you need to do is login, choose your host, press book it and wait for an email from the event organiser, who will then put you in touch with your host.
R supporters in the city of Lviv, in the west of the country, have also sprung into action.
Hostels in Lviv for that weekend are available online from just £11 per night.
Lviv is 340 miles away from Kiev with the drive expected to take around seven hours.
One Money Shop worker gave fans some advice, they said: “If you take 50 pound notes to Kiev with you,you will get a higher exchange rate off them.
“Don’t buy Euros, dollars or Russian roubles. You can’t spend them there and you will end up losing out on the rate changing pound to euro then euro to Ukraine etc. TAKE STERLING.”
Spirit of Shankly have also asked the club to assist in signposting safe and official money-changing points, to prevent fans being ripped off. The club will raise this with city officials.
