Tickets for Liverpool FC and BT Sport's joint screening of the Europa League final at the Echo Arena are now on general sale.

The option to attend the event on Wednesday May 18, which will form part of BT Sport and LFCTV’s separate Europa League final coverage, was initially offered to supporters who were unsuccessful in the ballot for match tickets.

But now all fans are welcomed to secure their place at this special event. 

Doors at the Echo Arena will open at 6pm BST with 9,000 tickets available costing just £5.

Ticket proceeds will be donated to the Liverpool FC Foundation to support the charity’s community programmes and partnerships across Merseyside, and BT Sport’s charitable initiative, The Supporters Club.

The news follows BT Sport’s announcement that it will screen the UEFA Europa League final on its Freeview BT Sport Showcase channel. The match will also be shown live on YouTube at youtube.com/btsport and bt.com. The final has never been made available for free on the video platform before.

There will be a carnival atmosphere with pre-match entertainment at Echo Arena Liverpool and refreshments will be available like other major events.
