A public holiday in Tirana as the city hosts the Europa Conference League Final.

The Albanian government has declared a public holiday in Tirana on Wednesday May 25th 2022 when the capital city hosts the Europa Conference League final between Roma and Feyenoord.

The capital will be a pedestrian-only zone as part of measures “to organize in the most exemplary way one of the most major events that have occurred in Albania,” Interior Minister Bledi Cuci said Wednesday.

Up to 100,000 Italian and Dutch fans are expected in Tirana even though each side has been allocated only 4,000 tickets for the inaugural final of the third-tier European club competition.

Capacity at the National Arena (Arena Kombetare) in Tirana is just 20,000.

“We are undertaking all the measures to make the day festive for everyone, not only for Italian and Dutch fans,” Cuci said.

UEFA picked Tirana as host in December 2020, one year after the new stadium officially opened and before any team qualified to enter the debut competition.
