In the European final match this month in Poland, 9,500 people will be present in the stadium. Fans will be able to attend this season’s Europa League final, according to UEFA.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, fans have been unable to attend matches in the European competition this season.
However, the Polish government, on the other hand, has agreed to allow 25% of the Stadion Miejski in Gdansk to be filled for the Europa League final on May 26.
Which teams will play in the EL final?
The teams contesting the final came through last night second legs of the semi-final ties.
Manchester United will face Unai Emery’s Villareal. Villarreal secured a 2-1 aggregate win and a spot in the Europa League final with a 0-0 draw at the Emirates.
On the other hand, Arsenal will not be involved in European Football for the first time in 25 years. At the same time, Mikel Arteta was adamant to prove himself after a devastating night at the Emirates.
Who is the Home Team?
As a result of a draw made for administrative purposes in March, the semi-final winner Villarreal is the nominal home team. Both finalists are allowed to wear their preferred colors, but if there is a collision, the away team (i.e Manchester United) must wear an alternate kit.
Where is the Europa League Final being played?
The 2021 Europa final will be held at the iconic Gdansk Stadium, which hosted four games at UEFA EURO 2012. The stadium had been earmarked to host the 2020 decider before the COVID-19 outbreak forced the 2019/20 competition’s final rounds to be held in Germany.
Is there VAR?
Yes, indeed! The video assistant referee (VAR) system was used in the knockout stage and will be extended to the group stage next season. Each team is allowed five substitutions, with a sixth in extra time.
