The game takes place in Stockholm, Sweden, at AIK’s Friends Arena. The stadium holds 50,000 fans and is also the home to the Swedish national team – as Zlatan Ibrahimovic well knows.

How can I get tickets?

There are a total of 48,000 tickets available for the final but Uefa has made only 37,000 of those available to fans of both clubs, as well as the general public.
