- Chelsea and Arsenal will get only 6,000 tickets each for their Europa League final
- Arsenal are not happy with this development considering the capacity of the stadium
- Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan, is the place for the Europa League final and can host 68,700 fans
Premier League giants Arsenal have frowned at the decision of UEFA to give the club and their opponents Chelsea 6,000 tickets each for the 2018/19 Europa League final.
The Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan, will be hosting the Europa League final between Chelsea and Arsenal and it has a capacity of 68,700.
According to the report by Guardian UK, Arsenal have explained that they are still in talks with Uefa to try to get more tickets for the game on Wednesday, May 29.
“We have been informed by Uefa that both clubs will receive an allocation of just 6,000 tickets each for the match.
“We are in active discussions with Uefa for more tickets for our fans but this disappointing ticket allocation obviously presents us with extreme difficulties in how we allocate tickets to you, our loyal supporters.
“It is inevitable that with an allocation of just 6,000 tickets for the final, there will be thousands of fans who have supported the club for years and been part of our Europa League journey this season, who will be unable to attend this match,'' Arsenal said according to Guardian UK.
En route to the final of the 2018/19 Europa League, Chelsea defeated Frankfurt in their semifinal game, while Arsenal sent Valencia out of the competition.
