UEFA have come under severe criticism from the Arsenal board and fans alike, as the logistics of hosting the Europa League final in Baku are proving very problematic.

"Time will tell if it is even possible for 6,000  ?Arsenal  fans to attend the match, given how extreme the travel challenges are."

Ahead of the final with  ?Chelsea , which takes place on 29 May, all eyes will be on the fans and their experiences in attending the fixture.

A statement released on the ?Arsenal website on Thursday says: "W e are bitterly disappointed by the fact that due to transport limitations Uefa can only make a maximum of 6,000 tickets available to Arsenal for a stadium with a capacity of well over 60,000.

European football's governing body have also received flak for the ticket allocations given to both the Gunners and Chelsea, with each club receiving just 6,000 tickets for the match taking place nearly 3,000 miles away from London.

The club concluded their website statement by saying: " Moving forward we would urge UEFA to ensure that supporter logistics and requirements are a key part of any future decisions for final venues as what has happened this season is unacceptable, and cannot be repeated."

UEFA will be desperate for the event to go smoothly, as any further trouble will bring yet more condemnation from the footballing world.
