 About 40,000 foreigners to arrive in Baku for Europa League final

Nearly 40,000 foreign nationals will arrive in Baku to watch the UEFA Europa League final match, said Elkhan Mammadov, General Secretary of the Association of Football Federations of Azerbaijan (AFFA).

He noted that this figure will hit a new record in the number of tourists who have so far arrived in Azerbaijan for international events. 

“Football is the most popular sports in our country. According to the survey conducted in 2017, football was among most-preferred sports by parents for their children, and this is a good point,” Mammadov added.

London clubs Arsenal and Chelsea will play the UEFA Europa League final at the Baku Olympic Stadium on May 29.
