FAI confirm that 2024 Europa League final will be played at Aviva Stadium

The FAI has confirmed OTB Sports' story that the 2024 UEFA Europa League final will be played in Dublin's Aviva Stadium. 

As reported here last month, local authorities were informed there was a 90% chance that European football's second tier final will be played at the Lansdowne Road venue in three-years' time.

The 2022 final is to be played at Seville's Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium, while the 2023 decider is penciled in for the Puskas Arena in Budapest.

The Aviva has hosted the Europa League final once before, with a Radamel Falcao goal seeing Porto beat Braga 1-0 in an all-Portuguese affair in 2011.

FAI CEO Jonathan Hill said, "This is really positive news, not just for Dublin but for Ireland as we prepare to host such a major football event and showcase the Aviva Stadium and Irish hospitality to the world in 2024.

“We were all disappointed when the COVID-19 pandemic saw the four UEFA EURO 2020 games moved away from Dublin so this really is something to look forward to just three years from now.

"The 2024 UEFA Europa League final will be a landmark event with huge economic benefits for Dublin and for Ireland along with the boost it will give our game in the build-up to the final.

“On behalf of the Association, I want to thank UEFA for awarding this final to the Aviva Stadium and I particularly want to thank the Irish government, Dublin City Council, Sport Ireland and the Aviva Stadium for their ongoing support.

"Together we are committed to bringing global events to our capital city and we know Dublin will put on a great show in 2024.”

Having seen the Aviva stripped of its Euro matches, Hill confirmed in April that the Aviva would be granted a European final of some description after 2023.

Bilbao's compensation for missing out on their card of Euro 2020 games is hosting the Women’s Champions League final in 2024.

Furthermore, UEFA has confirmed that Istanbul's Ataturk Stadium will host the 2023 Champions League final. COVID-19 restrictions saw it moved from the Turkish city in each of the last two years.

Munich were due to host the final in 2023, but that will now happen instead in 2025. Wembley Stadium will host the 2024 Champions League final.
