The second European top competition was back in action after more than 140 days off. The coronavirus crisis caught the Europa League in the middle of the round of 16 and, similarly to the Champions League, it had to modify its competition format.

The first leg of the round of 16 were played all except for Inter - Getafe and Sevilla - Roma, which were played as a single match in Germany. The competition is coming to an end and there is less left for the great game that will close the UEL. A final in which the king of the competition will once again be: Sevilla FC

When does Sevilla play in the 2019/2020 Europa League final?

The final of the 19/20 season of the UEFA Europa League will be played on Friday, August 21, 2020 at 9:00 p.m. That will be the last match of the championship and one of the first finals in history to be played on Friday.

The winner of the trophy, in addition to winning the title, will play the 2020 European Super Cup and qualify directly for the group stage of the 2020/2021 UEFA Champions League. If the Europa League winner were to qualify directly for the Champions group stage through his league, the third-placed from the fifth-ranked federation (France) will enter the group stage.

Where is the Europa League final played?

Gdansk had been chosen to host the 2020 Champions League final. Arena Gdansk was to host the most anticipated match of the year, but the Polish country had to forfeit the match at not being able to dispute with the public. After the decision not to play it in Poland, Gdansk will host the final of the next edition, that is, of the 2020/2021 season.

Finally, Germany took the lead and was the country chosen to play the final phase in a single match. More specifically, the matches are being played in the cities of Cologne, Duisburg, Düsseldorf, Gelsenkirchen. However, the grand final will be at the Stadion Köln in Cologne, whose trade name is RheinEnergieStadion.

A luxurious stadium in North Rhine

The Rhein Energie Stadium has a capacity of 46,195 in international matches. It is one of the largest sports venues in Germany and for UEFA it is a category 4 stadium, that is, the elite. It has the best grass in the Bundesliga.

After the First World War, Konrad Adenauer (Mayor of Cologne) set out to renovate the city and took advantage of the land left by the fallen fortifications. One of these lands was used to build the football stadium that they called Müngersdorf. Its construction was completed in 1923 and for more than ten years it was the largest sports venue in Germany.

In 1975 it underwent a first reform and on the occasion of the 2006 World Cup in Germany it was completely rebuilt in a work that cost more than 110 million euros. The athletics track was eliminated, the stands were tilted 34 degrees and the distance between the stands and the pitch was reduced, which is currently eight meters. It hosted five games of that World Cup (four in the group stage and one in the eighth) and was also one of the venues for the 2005 Confederations Cup. In addition, in 2014 it was voted the best stadium in the Bundesliga along with the Allianz Arena. A jewel that is preparing for the final of the Europa League.
