Chelsea struggling to sell their ticket allocation for Europa League final as fans steer clear of costly trip to BakuChelsea fans are steering clear of a costly trip to Baku for Europa League finalThe Blues are reportedly struggling to sell their 5,801 ticket allocationOnly 600 season ticket holders have taken up the option to buy a ticketThe club have opened up sales to members who do not have any loyalty points 

Chelsea are reportedly struggling to sell their ticket allocation for the Europa League final in Azerbaijan later this month.

The Blues were allocated a miserly 5,801 tickets for the final in the 68,700 capacity Olympic Stadium in Baku, the country's capital.

But, according to the Evening Standard, only 600 season ticket holders have purchased tickets so far, leading the club to open sales to members who do not have any loyalty points. 

Chelsea are 'struggling to sell their ticket allocation' for the Europa League final in Baku

Chelsea face Arsenal in the showpiece finale of the Europa League, but the final has come in for a torrent of criticism since the ticket allocations were announced.

Supporters from both clubs are faced with a daunting 5,500-mile round-trip to Baku, with the trip likely to set fans back almost £1,000.

Both clubs are offering a day trip to Baku through Thomas Cook, which does not include a hotel stay, but that will still set fans back £979 per person.

The Gunners are furious that they may have to leave key player Henrikh Mkhitaryan in London due to security fears related to his Armenian nationality.

Azerbaijan and Armenia are locked in conflict over the disputed region of Nagorno-Karakbakh, leading Azerbaijan to ban Armenian nationals from entering the country.
