Manchester United fans will receive no more than 9,500 tickets for the Europa League final against Ajax in Stockholm, on May 24 in the 50,000-capacity Friends Arena in Stockholm. United will play Ajax – who will get a similar allocation for the 24 May final – after edging past Celta Vigo.
The only United supporters eligible to apply for a ticket will be season ticket holders who have attended every cup game this season and season ticket or executive ticket holders who have applied for a ticket for an away game in Europe at some point over the past two seasons. Even then, United expect to have far more applications than tickets.
Last year’s final at Basel’s St Jakob-Park, which has a capacity of 35,000, saw Liverpool and Sevilla allocated 10,236 tickets each.
