European football returns to north London this season, with Arsenal – and potentially Tottenham Hotspur – getting their Europa League campaign underway in late-October.
Following the late finish to last season’s tournament, games aren’t scheduled until a month later than usual, with group matches set to be played on October 22.
Arsenal qualified for the competition on their back of their FA Cup triumph last season, while Spurs are not quite in the group stages just yet – they still have a tie with Maccabi Haifa to get through tonight.
Both will be looking to break into the top four in the Premier League this season, however the Europa League is an alternative route to do just that, with the competition’s winner automatically progressing into Europe’s elite tournament.
Arsenal and Spurs are two of the three sides representing England in the competition, along with Leicester City.
The draw for the group stages take place on Friday, October 2, in Nyon, Switzerland – with the start scheduled for 12pm.
Both Mikel Arteta and Jose Mourinho will be hoping they are in the competition for the long-haul and reach the final, but where and when will this season’s final take place?
Where is the 2020/21 Europa League final?
This season’s final will be played at the Gdansk Stadium in Gdansk, Poland.
The stadium was initially supposed to be the venue for the final in the 2019/20 campaign, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the latter stages of the tournament were moved to Germany.
Along with behind-closed-doors games that will be shown on free-to-air terrestrial TV, Premier League football will once again be split across three broadcasters: Sky Sports, BT Sport and Amazon Prime.
