The Uefa Champions League final is one of the most expensive sporting events to attend, but for one fan, it is even more costly than the price of the admission ticket.
Manchester United supporter Paul Quinn stopped off to buy the registration plate UTD 80Y for £12,900 on the way to Wembley Stadium to see his team play against Barcelona, a DVLA spokesman said.
Mr Quinn, 45, who owns the Town Hall Hotel in Eccles, Manchester, said: "I can't believe it, it's a perfect plate.
"I have another UTD registration, but this is the tops."
