Chelsea will tackle Arsenal in the first all-English Europa League final on Wednesday, with the Olympic Stadium in Baku the venue for the showdown.

It is an encounter to capture the imagination of the public, not least because the London derby will be played out on one of the most high-profile stages of European football.

The incentive of silverware adds another dimension to this clash between two sides who will feel that they underperformed during the 2018-19 campaign as a whole.

Travel difficulties for fans mean that the capital of Azerbaijan has been left out of reach for many , with reports that around half the 12,000-ticket allocation for the English supporters has not been taken up.

As a consequence, there is a strong demand to watch this encounter on television.

Regular broadcasters BT Sport possess the sole rights to the fixture on television, with the match set to be broadcast on BT Sport 2 and BT Sport 4K UHD .

For viewers with a BT TV subscription, these channels are 409 and 433 respectively.

On Sky, BT Sport 2 can be accessed on 414 (HD) and 868 (SD). Meanwhile, BT Sport 4K UHD is not currently available on Sky.

For viewers with Virgin Media, BT Sport 2 is channel 528 while it is possible to access BT Sport 4K UHD via channel 531.

However, the fixture will be available for the British public to watch for free, even if they do not have a subscription.
