Buy your Europa League Final tickets here on SeatPick, the largest ticket search engine online and attend the 2023/24 UEFA Europa League final that will take place at Dublin's Aviva Stadium on 22 May 2024.
The UEFA Europa League was initially known by a few other titles, firstly the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup between 1955 and 1971, before it was renamed the UEFA Cup before being rebranded in 2009 as the Europa League.
Tottenham Hotspur was the first winner of the competition, known as the UEFA Cup. They defeated Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-2 in a two-legged final in 1972.
Before the advent of the UEFA Champions League, the UEFA Cup saw premier teams who finished below the national champions battle it out to win the trophy. It was exclusively a knockout competition.
Sevilla FC have won the tournament on seven occasions, winning every final they've taken part in. The next most successful teams in UEFA Cup/Europa League history are Inter Milan, Liverpool and Juventus, all of whom have won the competition three times. Other massive European teams have emerged victorious, with Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, and Ajax also picking up the trophy.
Sevilla FC proved very dominant in the early seasons of the UEFA Europa League, winning three Europa Leagues titles in a row between 2014 and 2016. They have the most Europa League wins, having won it five times in its current form.
The changing of the format has arguably increased the standing of the competition and it's very much considered a highly prized tournament by the biggest teams in European football.
Interest in Europa League tickets is huge, and availability is scarce when it comes to buying tickets from the official club sites. This is especially true if you are talking about English teams and games at big teams like Arsenal and Manchester United and at venues like the Emirates Stadium and Old Trafford.
Winning the UEFA Europa League is no simple ask. A victorious team will have to fight through group and knockout stages to get to the Europa League final and then lift the trophy.
Participating teams include those who qualified from the start and those who have dropped into the competition from the UEFA Champions League. Some will also have to have to go through a preliminary knockout round.
The Europa League group stage sees 32 teams split into eight groups, with the team which finishes top securing safe passage to the Round of 16. The teams who finish second face off against those who spend third in the Champions League group stages in the knockout round play-offs.
The competition was further enhanced when UEFA decided in 2015 to reward winners of the Europa League with progress to the Champions League for the next season.
This makes the Europa League final even more than just a football match. It's also a potential gateway to the immense riches that come from taking part in the Champions League.
Here is a list of recent Europa League Final matches.
There have been some amazing UEFA Cup and Europa League final matches over the years; here are a few of the most memorable.
2000-01 - Liverpool 5-4 Deportivo Alaves
Few top European finals can compete with the goal-glut that took place at the Westfaldenstadion in Dortmund on the 16th of May 2001. Liverpool rushed into an early 2-0 lead, with goals from Markus Babbel and Steven Gerrard, and the Anfield side looked destined to waltz to an easy win, however, Ivan Alonso responded for Alaves before man of the match Gary McAllister made it 3-1 from the spot.
Alaves came out in the second half like a team that has been hammered by coach Mané, With Javi Moreno, scoring twice in four minutes to make it 3-3. Robbie Fowler once again Liverpool the lead but Jordi Cruyff took the game to extra-time with an 88th-minute leveler.
The Spanish side was reduced to ten men when sub-Magno was sent off and eventually lost when Gerard Houllier's side had the fortune of a fifth goal, courtesy of an own goal from Delfi Geli, which proved to be the golden goal that gave Liverpool a famous win.
2019-20 - Sevilla 3-2 Inter Milan
Though the 2020 Europa League final was played in front of zero fans due to restrictions that were in place at the time, that didn't impinge on the quality of what proved to be a hugely enjoyable end to end encounter at the RheinEnergieStadion in Cologne.
Romelu Lukaku scored an early penalty but two goals from Luuk de Jong put Europa League veterans Sevilla in control after half an hour. Burly centre-back Diego Godin made it 2-2 at half-time but Belgian Lukaku earned the distinction of scoring at both ends when his own goal, in the 74th minute, gave Julen Lopetegui's side the win in Germany.
1983-84 - Tottenham Hotspur 2-2 Anderlecht
For much of the history of the UEFA Cup the final was a two legged occasion with games taking place at each team's home stadium. In 1984 the opening game saw Tottenham, traveling to Brussels to take on Anderlecht, take the lead through Paul Miller only for Morten Olsen secure a draw for the Belgians late on.
The second leg saw Anderlecht face an intimidating atmosphere at White Hart Lane but nonetheless take the lead when Alexandre Czerniatynski scored on the hour. Graham Roberts scored to take the games to extra time and penalties.
This is when Spurs keeper Tony Parks, who was not the first choice goalie, saved the key final penalty to give the North London side the trophy in truly dramatic circumstances.
Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona, and Juventus all took part in the 2022/23 Europa League edition, but none could reach the final.
For the seventh time in their history, Sevilla were crowned champions in the Europa League final in Budapest. The Spaniards continued their remarkable record in the compeition by beating Jose Mourinho's Roma on penalties. Paulo Dybala had initially given Roma the lead, but Gianluca Mancini scored an own-goal to make it all square early in the second half.
The match went to penalties and Sevilla won 4-1 thanks to misses from Mancini and Roger Ibanez.
