UEFA to host over 9,000 spectators in Gdansk for Europa League final

The Europa League final in Poland later this month will host 9,500 spectators.

UEFA have confirmed the Stadion Energa in Gdansk will be filled to a 25% capacity, as per RTÉ. That means the two teams competing will be handed 2,000 tickets each while the rest controversially goes to UEFA’s friends and family – presumably sponsors too.

Manchester United already have one foot in the Europa League final after beating Roma 6-2 at Old Trafford last week, while Arsenal lost their first leg 2-1 against Spanish side Villarreal.

Four English teams remain in European competition this season, which bodes well for the Premier League when compared against Bundesliga, Serie A and La Liga. Not to forget Ligue 1.

It’s possible that we will see two all-English finals on the horizon, like when Liverpool and Spurs faced-off in the Champions League while Arsenal and Chelsea went head-to-head in the Europa League.

Truthfully, all I care about is United winning a trophy. I couldn’t care less about the other English teams.
