NYON, March 15, 2018 – Ticket sales for the 2018 UEFA Europa League final in Lyon, France, have started today, exclusively onUEFA.com, and will run until 14.00CET on 22 March, with tickets available from €45.
General public and fans are allocated the vast majority of the tickets for the final, which will be played at the Stade de Lyon on Wednesday 16 May (20.45CET kick-off). Given the net stadium capacity of 57,000, a total amount of 23,000 tickets are being made available to fans worldwide via UEFA.com. The number of tickets reserved for fans of the two finalists will be confirmed in due course, with the remaining tickets being allocated to the local organising committee, national associations, commercial partners and broadcasters, and to serve the corporate hospitality programme with competitive packages available here.
For the sales process on UEFA.com, tickets will not be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Instead, a ballot will be conducted to allocate the tickets once the sales period has ended. As in previous years, UEFA consulted closely with the independent Football Supporters Europe network (FSE) when setting ticket prices, which have remained the same across all categories as last year.
The ticket price categories available for the general public are:
· Category 4: €45
· Category 3: €70
· Category 2: €100
· Category 1: €150
· Accessible tickets for disabled spectators: €45 (ticket priced at Category 4 rate and one companion ticket provided for free)
· Youth package: €90 (two Category 2 tickets – one adult and one youth under the age of 14 sold at discounted Category 4 rate); 400 youth packages (800 tickets) in total are on sale for the general public.
Applicants can apply for up to four tickets per person. The tickets will be personalised, and each applicant is required to provide their personal details on the ticket portal. They will be informed via email by 6 April at the latest whether their application has been successful. Fans will also be able to check the status of their application on the ticket portal using their dedicated username. A frequently asked questions section is available on UEFA.com.
