2021 Europa League final tickets on sale for up to £113 each but Man Utd and Arsenal
fans may need a Covid passport to attend, Uefa has confirmed a crowd of 9,500 will be
allowed into the Stadion Miejski in Gdansk on May 26.
And it has been revealed that will include allocations of 2,000 for each finalist.
Man Utd is 6-2 up from their semi-final first-leg against Roma having all-but booked
their spot in the showpiece game.
Meanwhile, Arsenal are seeking to overturn a 2-1 deficit against Villarreal at Emirates
Tickets are already available to buy through Uefa for up to £113, with the cheapest
around £35. But fans – who can apply for a maximum of two each – will be gambling
on border restrictions between the UK and Poland being lifted over the next three weeks.
Current Government advice suggests no ‘non-essential’ travel to Poland should be made.
However, flights are still running between the two countries.
On Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed some foreign travel could be
allowed from May 17 – the next phase of the lockdown roadmap.
Johnson claimed the Government would ‘be saying more as soon as we can’ but ‘we have
got to be very, very tough.
As things stand, visitors to Poland face quarantine requirements and must have had
a negative Covid test within 48 hours of their arrival in the country.
But for now, the situation is fluid and could change in the coming weeks.
Uefa warned: “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.”
While Poland is getting on top of the virus, the chances of Chelsea or Manchester City
supporters being able to travel to Istanbul for the Champions League final on May 29
appear more limited.
