The Metropolitano beat the Olympic Stadium in Baku, which was rewarded with hosting the 2019 Europa League final. Baku's Europa League duty will come one year before the 70,000-seat stadium hosts four games, including a quarterfinal match, at the 2020 European Championship.
In a seven-city contest, the 2019 Super Cup was awarded to the Besiktas Arena in Istanbul. It was a losing bidder for the Europa League rights. UEFA has returned to competitive bid contests after years of awarding finals to favored cities.
