The 2024/25 UEFA Europa League season will conclude at the Estadio de San Mamés in Bilbao, Spain.

With a capacity in excess of 50,000, the home of Athletic Club opened in September 2013 to replace the old San Mamés, which had been home to the club since 1913.

The old stadium staged the second leg of the 1977 UEFA Cup final, Athletic beating Juventus 2-1 but still losing the tie on away goals having lost the first leg 1-0, as well as three games at the 1982 FIFA World Cup finals.

The 2024 UEFA Women's Champions League final was the new venue's first major international decider, with Barcelona running out 2-0 winners against Lyon.

When is the 2025 Europa League final?

The final is scheduled to take place on 21 May 2025. It will be the 16th season of the competition in its current form, and the 54th since the UEFA Cup was first introduced.

What do the Europa League winners get?

The UEFA Europa League trophy is, at 15kg, the heaviest piece of UEFA silverware. To make things extra interesting, it also has no handles.

The 2024/25 winners gain a place in the league phase of the 2025/26 UEFA Champions League, if they have not qualified via their domestic competition.

They will also earn the right to play against the winners of the 2024/25 UEFA Champions League in the 2025 UEFA Super Cup.
