Arsenal have urged Uefa to explain their reasoning in selecting Baku for the Europa League Final after casting doubt over whether they can sell out their 6,000 allocation for the showpiece occasion.

“Everyone at Arsenal is delighted to have reached the UEFA Europa League Final and we are all very much looking forward to the match against Chelsea on Wednesday May 29,” it began.



The Gunners face Chelsea in Azerbaijan on 29 May with fans struggling for flights and accommodation to make the near 6,000-mile round trip to see the club’s first European final in 13 years.



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

“We have 45,000 season ticket holders and for so many fans to miss out due to UEFA selecting a final venue with such limited transport provision is quite simply not right.

“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.

Arsenal are also in contact with the Foreign Office to help British-Armenian ticket-holders gain access to Azerbaijan.
