baku OLYMPIC STADIUM to host 2019 uefa europa league final
During the Executive Committee meeting of 20 September 2017, UEFA decided that the Baku Olympic Stadium will be the host stadium for the 2019 UEFA Europa League final.
The Stadium Consultancy assisted the Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan (AFFA) in the bid process. TSC prepared the stadium sector of the bid book, which included the preparation of all overlay maps and drawings. For this purpose TSC also developed all specific modifications to the stadium required to host this major football event.
The UEFA Europe League final, which was won last year by England giants Manchester United, will be held on 29 May 2019 in the Azerbaijani capital. The 70,000 seater stadium was built for the 2015 European Games and has already been selected to host three group stage matches and one quarter final for the UEFA EURO 2020 tournament, for which TSC also prepared the stadium bid documents.
