Seville to host 2021 Europa League final

Sevilla's Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium will stage next season's UEFA Europa League final on Wednesday 26 May 2021.

The stadium previously hosted the 1986 European Cup final between Barcelona and Steaua București, when the Romanian club delivered one of the biggest shocks in the tournament’s history with a penalty shootout victory.

The stadium now holds 43,883 spectators and its host club have won the Europa League competition a record five times, with the news confirmed on Tuesday.

The city of Seville hosted the 2003 UEFA Cup final, when FC Porto defeated Glasgow Celtic 3-2 in La Cartuja – a stadium without a host club.

This season's UEFA Europa League decider will be held in the Polish Gdansk Stadium in Gdansk, on Wednesday 27 May.

The Spanish National Team have never lost a match in the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, since their first fixture in 1961 to their latest in 2015. In total, the team has played 25 matches at the stadium, with a record of 20 wins and five draws.
