Europa League finalists will receive 7,000 tickets each for the game at the 68,700-capacity Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan.

The final is set to take place on May 29 and could feature both Premier League clubs Arsenal and Chelsea, depending on the results of next month’s semi-finals.

The other two teams still in the running are Spanish LaLiga club Valencia and German Bundesliga team Eintracht Frankfurt.

The governing body said 37,500 tickets, or 58 per cent of the stadium’s capacity, have been put on general sale, with the remainder to be allocated to the local organising committee, national associations, commercial partners and broadcasters, and to serve the corporate hospitality programme.

A UEFA spokesperson said: “Regarding ticketing for the general public, due to a high demand for tickets, the allocation process was completed by a lottery and took place once the application window phase closed. Successful applicants were invited to proceed with payment for their tickets.

“In order to secure the tickets, applicants were required to make payment within a specified timeframe. As some tickets were left unpaid, they were offered for sale to other applicants whose application was initially unsuccessful.”

Individuals are able to purchase as many as four tickets in one purchase, double the average amount available from previous finals.
