Fan suggestion for Seville show
Gigantic ticket rush to the Eintracht final

Eintracht Frankfurt fans will receive just 10,000 tickets for the Europa League final. At the quarter-finals in Barcelona, ​​30,000 fans were already in the stadium. The club is now talking about a “gigantic” wave of inquiries. There is a proposal for a public viewing in Seville.

Eintracht Frankfurt football fans are very interested in Europa League final tickets in Seville. With a view to the game against Glasgow Rangers on May 18, the Hessians said they had received “well over 100,000 requests” and thus more than ten times the actual contingent of 10,000 tickets (9 p.m./RTL and in the live ticker). “We expected a very large wave of inquiries, but this interest within 48 hours is simply gigantic and has far exceeded our expectations,” said CEO Axel Hellmann.

We know that there will be many disappointed, he admitted. “I assure you that we will try to get every ticket that we get through official channels so that as many fans as possible can be there in Seville,” promised Hellmann.

UEFA has chosen Sevilla FC’s Estadio Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan for this year’s final, which can only accommodate around 44,000 spectators. The stadium of city rivals Betis, on the other hand, holds at least 60,000 fans. With two traditional clubs with large crowds of fans, it might have been the better choice.

Rush probably too big for the city center

And it is precisely for this stadium that there is now a fan suggestion from Germany: moderator Jan Köppen shared the idea on Twitter of opening the Betis stadium for a joint public viewing of both fan camps. A proposal that, however, also raises security concerns. In addition, the Scottish tabloid “Daily Record” reports that the Olympic Stadium is already being considered as a place for public viewing for Rangers fans. Up to 100,000 fans from Scotland are also expected in Seville.

Accordingly, those responsible in the Spanish city are apparently concerned that the planned fan zone in the city center will not be sufficient. Relief is therefore being sought elsewhere. The plan could be to guide at least one fan camp to a large arena on the outskirts of the city.

Even if thousands of Frankfurt fans travel to Seville without a ticket, a large number will remain in Hesse. The club therefore expects that its own stadium will also be sold out at the public viewing. Even for this event, where the game cannot be followed live on site, trading on the black market has already picked up speed. The tickets that were officially sold for 10 euros were already being offered on the secondary market for over 100 euros.
