The Europa League final in Poland later this month will be able to host 9,500 spectators.

UEFA have confirmed the Stadion Energa in Gdansk will be allowed to be filled to 25% capacity, cited by RTE.

The two teams competing will be handed 2,000 tickets each.

The general public will also be offered 2,000 tickets, and the remaining 3,500 will be allocated to the local organising committee, UEFA and national associations, commercial partners and broadcasters.

Manchester United took a big step toward Gdansk, registering a 6-2 win over Roma at Old Trafford, while Arsenal are up against a 2-1 deficit at the hands of Spanish side Villarreal.

The Gunners have the benefit of being the home side in the second leg, and the away goal scored by Nicolas Pepe could prove crucial.

It’s potentially an exciting time for the Premier League, with Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City all on the cusp of making European cup finals this season.

Just like we saw two years ago, when Liverpool and Spurs faced-off in the Champions League final and Chelsea and Arsenal fought for the Europa League, there could be two all-English showdowns on the horizon.
