The Europa League group stage gets underway this week, with 32 teams from across Europe hoping to progress through the tournament and into next year’s final.

Manchester United and Arsenal will take part in this year’s Europa League, and both teams have recent history in the final of UEFA’s second club competition.

United lost to Villarreal in a mammoth penalty shootout in the 2021 final, whilst Arsenal lost to London rivals Chelsea in the 2019 edition in Baku.

And Rangers agonisingly lost their final earlier this year in Seville, after being beaten by German side Eintracht Rangers on penalties following a 1-1 draw after extra time.

Here is what you need to know about the 2023 Europa League final.

When is the 2023 Europa League final?

The Europa League final will take place on May 31, 2023.

The game will start at 8pm UK time.

Where will the 2023 Europa League final be held?

The Europa League final will be held at the Puskas Arena in Budapest, Hungary.

The stadium has a capacity of 67,000 and was named after legendary Real Madrid and Hungary striker Ferenc Puskas after it opened in 2019.

At Euro 2020, the stadium hosted three group stage matches and one round of 16 tie.

The Puskas Arena also hosted the 2020 UEFA Super Cup between Bayern Munich and Sevilla.

How to watch the final on TV

It might be nearly nine months away, but there’s no harm in getting prepared early.

The Europa League final will be shown live on BT Sport, who once again have exclusive rights to broadcast the competition in the UK.

In previous years, BT have shown the final live on their YouTube Football channel.

Fans without BT will be able to buy a monthly pass for £25, with BT broadband not needed to watch the action on BT’s app and web player.

Full subscription to BT Sport starts from £16 a month, with a package containing BT, Sky and Eurosport available for £41 a month.

BBC Radio 5 Live and Talksport have the rights to live radio broadcast of Europa League.
