The first UEFA Europa Conference League final will be played at the 21,690-capacity National Arena (Arena Kombëtare) in Tirana.

Appropriately for the inaugural decider, it will also be the first UEFA competition final to be played in Albania. The final will take place on Wednesday 25 May.

The stadium opened in November 2019 with a European Qualifier between Albania and France. It was built, with the help of UEFA’s HatTrick assistance programme, on the site of the former Qemal Stafa Stadium in the centre of the Albanian capital.
