The Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan (AFFA) announced on Tuesday the prices and the date of sale for tickets to the 2019 UEFA Europa League final football (soccer) game, which will take place in Baku on May 29.
AFFA Secretary General Elkhan Mammadov said ticket prices will be cheaper than the cost of tickets to last year’s match held in the French city of Lion.
“The cheapest ticket for the crucial match is 35 euros ($39), and the most expensive is 130 euros ($147),” Mammadov told Report.az. “If I’m not mistaken, the average price for a ticket in France was 95 euros ($107). We will offer for an average price of 70 euros ($79). Of course, VIP tickets are more expensive. However, ticket prices in Baku will be cheaper in general.”
Mammadov said that tickets will be available for sale online starting the first week of March in 2019. Fans will be able to book tickets online for the first, second, third and fourth categories from March, while VIP tickets are already on sale.
Baku will host the final game of the UEFA Europa League 2019 season in its 68,700 seat Olympic Stadium. UEFA selected Baku as the host city on September 20 last year from amongst six European cities, namely Glasgow, Seville, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Istanbul and Tbilisi.
The 2018–19 UEFA Europa League tournament will be the 48th edition of UEFA’s second-best club-level tournament after the ultimate tournament known as the Champions League. The winner will automatically qualify for a place in the UEFA Champions League 2019-2020 season group stage, and secure the chance of winning the next trophy in a Super Cup game with the winner of the 2018–19 UEFA Champions League.
