010 - Tickets for final in Basel on sale on UEFA.com
Ticket sales for the 2016 UEFA Europa League final have started today, exclusively on UEFA.com, and will run until Monday 21 March at 18.00CET.
Fans and the general public are allocated more than three quarters of the tickets for the final, which will be played at St. Jakob-Park in Basel on Wednesday 18 May (20.45 CET kick-off). Given the net stadium capacity of 35,000, a total amount of 27,000 tickets are available to fans and the general public, with the two finalist teams receiving nearly 9,000 tickets each and with about 9,000 tickets being available for sale to fans worldwide via UEFA.com. The remaining tickets are allocated to the local organising committee, national associations, commercial partners and broadcasters, and to serve the corporate hospitality programme.
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 for this year's final.
The ticket price categories available for the general public are:
• Category 1: CHF 180
• Category 2: CHF 120
• Category 3: CHF 90
• Category 4: CHF 50
• Accessible tickets for disabled spectators: CHF 50 (ticket priced at Category 4 rate and one companion ticket provided for free)
• Youth package: CHF 100 (two Category 2 tickets – one adult and one youth under the age of 14 sold at discounted Category 4 rate). In total 200 youth packages (400 tickets) will be on sale for the general public.
Applicants can apply for up to two 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 Friday 8 April at the latest whether their application has been successful or not. They will also be able to check the status of their application on the ticket portal using their dedicated username. Tickets will be delivered no later than the beginning of May.
Ticketing Terms and Conditions
All ticket holders are bound by the ticketing terms and conditions and UEFA will take action in case of any breaches. Online applications will be verified with the competent authorities to ensure that anyone banned from attending football matches cannot purchase the tickets. Sales of tickets for the 2016 UEFA Europa League final will be conducted exclusively on UEFA.com. UEFA urges all football fans to refrain from purchasing tickets or hospitality packages from unauthorised sellers, agents or websites, as such tickets may be counterfeit or invalid and an unaware purchaser may be refused admission to the stadium.
