Manchester United fans to be allowed to attend Europa League final

2 min read

UEFA have announced that up to 9,500 supporters will be able to attend this season’s Europa League final in Gdansk, Poland.

Manchester United will almost certainly qualify for the final as they hold a 6-2 advantage over Roma following the first leg of their semi-final tie last week.

Barring a cataclysmic failure in Rome this Thursday in the reverse fixture, United will advance to the final on Wednesday, May 26, where they could face either Arsenal or Villarreal, and supporters will be in the stands to cheer them on.

UEFA have revealed that Polish authorities have given the green light for a limited number of fans to attend the game, with a capacity of 25 per cent of the Stadion Miekski.

6,000 of the 9,500 tickets have been allocated for supporters but only 2,000 will go to each team, with the remaining 2,000 being offered on general sale.

The tickets are priced at Category 4: €40, Category 3: €65, Category 2: €90 and Category 1: €130 and are on sale until Friday, May 7.

UEFA said in a statement: “Following confirmation by local authorities in Poland to allow limited access for spectators to the 2021 UEFA Europa League final on 26 May in Gdańsk, ticket sales have now started exclusively on UEFA.com and will run until 14.00 CEST on Friday 7 May 2021.

“The Polish authorities have confirmed to UEFA a capacity of 25% of the stadium or up to 9,500 spectators . Supporters from abroad will have to comply with border entry restrictions and requirements that will be in force at the time of the final as no exemptions will be granted to ticket holders. Access to the stadium will be granted in line with the applicable local legislation, which is to be confirmed by the local authorities during this week and may include the need for proof of a vaccine or a negative COVID-19 test result. More information is available here.

“UEFA will reimburse the full price of the ticket to successful buyers, should a reduction to the stadium capacity be announced by the local authorities at a later stage.

“For the sales process on UEFA.com, tickets will not be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Instead, a ballot will be conducted to allocate the tickets once the application period has ended.

“As usual, fans and the general public are being allocated the majority of the tickets for the finals.”
