Arena Gdańsk in Gdansk, Poland, will stage the 2020 UEFA Europa League final.

Opened in 2011, Arena Gdańsk hosted four games at UEFA EURO 2012 – three group stage fixtures and Germany’s 4-2 quarter-final win against Greece – and is home to Ekstraklasa side Lechia Gdańsk. Poland have played a number of international friendlies at the stadium, but the ground has yet to hold a match in UEFA club competition.

Located in the city’s Letnica neighbourhood, the stadium’s curved 45,000 square-metre exterior consists of 18,000 plates designed to resemble amber, which has long been extracted along the Baltic coast.

The decision was taken at Thursday’s UEFA Executive Committee meeting in Kyiv.

Next season’s final will take place on 29 May 2019 at the Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan.
