Chelsea and Manchester United fans have been given a boost with news Russia have agreed to allow fans with Champions League final tickets entry to the country without a visa.

Supporters of both clubs will be able to use their tickets for the game in Moscow as a visa substitute for a 72-hour period between May 19 and 23.

UEFA´s announcement will be a huge relief for the estimated 42,000 ticketholders planning to travel to Russia for what is arguably the biggest match ever played between two English clubs.
