UEFA hold security meetings ahead of Rangers v Frankfurt Europa League final
David Edgar has reported that UEFA have been in talks with stakeholders today ahead of the big Europa League final between Rangers versus Eintracht Frankfurt.
The final will be held in Seville on May 18, and there is a crazy demand for tickets.
The Gers will feature in their first European final in 14 years. There has been a massive demand for tickets from supporters with only 9,500 tickets available.
Fans are trying to flock to Seville in large numbers with over 100,000 Gers fans expected to head for Andalusia.
Edgar wrote on the Heart & Hand Twitter account: “UEFA are having security meetings with ‘stakeholders’ today so hopefully all the points being discussed on here will be brought up. Still plenty of time to reach sensible solutions!”
Both UEFA and the Spanish authorities are currently not willing to entertain people who are without tickets, travelling to Spain.
With a big number of German fans also expected to arrive, the sensible solution will be to open large space for the fans to watch the game on giant screens.
Obviously, there could be an issue of chaos, especially if the fans can get emotional if the results do not go as expected.
At the same time, this is also a big opportunity for the country to boost their finance.
With so many fans coming to Spain, the bars will be full and they will buy drinks and food. The authorities can charge some fees for watching the game, even on giant screens.
It makes sense to deal with it in that way. Spain, like most of the world, has gone through the worst phase of Covid.
UEFA should come up with the idea to sort out this issue that benefits every party.
