Arsenal start plans for Europa League final early with fans able to fly to Gdansk in coronavirus secure bubble


ARSENAL are preparing early for the Europa League final – with hopes of a coronavirus-secure bubble to fly 1,900 fans to Gdansk.

The Gunners must first overcome Villarreal in the two-legged semis, while Manchester United take on Roma.

The Europa League final is due to be played at the Gdansk Stadium, with Arsenal and Man Utd hoping to make it an all-English affair

And it is thought Arsenal are proposing a single travel option for their potential date in Poland – a flight package run by the club.

That tightly-controlled measurse to combat the risk of Covid-19 would reportedly be followed by a coach from the airport to the ground.

And there would be no travelling around the large Baltic coast city of Gdansk itself.

The stadium, home to Lechia Gdansk, has a capacity of 41,000.

It was due to be the venue for last year’s final until the coronavirus pandemic forced changes.

Poland has not held a football match in front of fans since March 2020.

But the British government are on course to ease limits on overseas travel from May 17.

And the Gunners and United are optimistic their supporters will be able to attend the Gdansk showpiece – should either or both clubs reach the final.
