Tickets for this season's UEFA Europa League final, scheduled for the 18 May in Basel, are already on their way to Liverpool and Seville.

Shortly after the final whistle blew in yesterday's semi-final deciders, the presses started whirring at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon, running through the night in order to ensure that tickets were ready to be sent out to the finalists today. The clubs should receive their allocations soon, and will sell them to their own fans directly.

St. Jakob-Park has a capacity of 35,000 and was a semi-final venue at UEFA EURO 2008. For more on the stadium selection process, click here.

UEFA, meanwhile, is aware that many ticketless fans will travel to Basel to support their teams. However, we advise anyone without tickets not to approach the stadium on the day of the final since safety and security measures will be very tight. The stadium perimeter will be reinforced in order to guarantee safe and secure entrance for all ticket holders.
