GOVERNMENT TO SUPPORT SEVILLA FC IN BID TO HOST 2019 EUROPA LEAGUE FINAL

The final decision will be taken by the UEFA Executive Committee

The president José Castro announced in January that Sevilla FC would be a candidate to host the 2019 Europa League Final and this Friday the Government will approve an agreement to support the bid.

The Cabinet, led by Mariano Rajoy, have the approval as part of their agenda for today and will therefore back Sevilla FC's candidacy. The club will have to wait for the UEFA Executive Committee to take a decision.

The final of the coming edition of the Europa League will be played at Parc OL, the home of Lyon. The Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán will be totally remodelled by the time of the 2019 fixture.

Undoubtedly, the chance to host the final of the European competition within two years, at the home of the five-time winners, will be another opportunity to extend the club's links with a competition that Sevilla FC holds dear.
