i really hope Arsenal and Chelsea finish 5th and 6th and both make it to the final, what a high stakes game that would be.

68,000 seater stadium for the final.

Each team receives...... 6,000 tickets. Obviously.

i get they want to move these finals around but picking smaller stadiums always seems silly, more so with the CL final given there are bigger grounds in Spain.



also i agree it should be that half of the tickets get split between the fans, then half of the others go on general sale and the rest go to the football family as they like to call it.

The whole football family thing is a little ridiculous.

They surely have to know it's silly, but they also have to pander to the corporate crowd. I mean less than 20% of tickets going to fans of the teams involved!

well seems Chelsea have been scrappy in getting to the final while Arsenal have looked like the cream of the crop in the EL but for Arsenal this was the worst match up and with them needing a win to avoid having to play in the Thursday competition next year.

going to feel dirty "supporting" Chelsea on the night but guess it has to be done.

Baku looks like a great "athletics" arena but wonder how good an atmosphere it will generate for a final with well over half the crowd been neutral on lookers.

playing on a wednesdsay with no direct flights from the UK should be fun for those wanting to go.
