UEFA has announced an innovative new category of ticket for the 2020 Europa League final in Gdansk.
Fans will be able to purchase a ‘Flexi-Final’ ticket, which allows for a full refund on the ticket price should their team fail to qualify.
In a statement, the governing body said: “UEFA recognises that the level of interest from fans for the UEFA Europa League final may be driven by the teams who qualify. To reflect this, and as a continuation of the successful ‘Fans First’ strategy launched for UEFA EURO 2020, UEFA is offering fans a new type of ticket within the general public ticket sales – a ‘Flexi-Final’ ticket, which is specifically designed for fans who only wish to attend the final should their team qualify.”
The ‘Flexi-Final’ tickets are separate from the finalists’ allocation and will be available for fans of the teams who still remain in the competition should their team not reach the final, the ticket will be fully refunded apart from a handling fee paid at the start of the process.
Applicants can apply for up to four tickets each, and fans will be informed by email by the end of March 2020 whether their application has been successful.
Fans who wish to attend the final irrespective of the teams that qualify can still apply for regular tickets as normal.
