Up to 9,500 spectators will be allowed to attend the Europa League final in the Polish city of Gdansk later this month, UEFA announced yesterday after getting the green light from local authorities.

European football’s governing body said Polish officials had agreed that 25 percent of the roughly 40,000 seats in the Gdansk Stadium could be filled for the match on Wednesday, May 26.

The game could be an all-English affair, with Manchester United almost certain to reach the final after beating Roma 6-2 in their semi-final first leg last Thursday.

In the other semi-final Arsenal host Villarreal this Thursday trailing 2-1 after the first leg of their tie against the Spaniards.

Fans from outside Poland will be allowed in, with UEFA saying each finalist will be allocated 2,000 tickets while 2,000 more will go on sale to the general public.

The remaining tickets will be distributed to other groups such as commercial partners of UEFA, broadcasters and national associations.

The Gdansk venue on Poland’s Baltic coast, which hosted matches at Euro 2012, was due to stage the Europa League final last year before the pandemic intervened.
