The Europa League Final is approaching fast and will be contested between two giants: Chelsea and Arsenal.

There are a couple of different ways to watch the final in most countries, but nearly all require you to have some type of cable subscription.

If you don’t have cable then you’re unlikely to be able to watch the match and with two giants taking part in one of Europe’s most prestigious football competitions, it’s one you won’t want to miss.

If you don’t have a cable subscription and you don’t want to resort to illegal sketchy streams then your options are limited but below I’ll be showing you how you can stream the entire match on a legitimate site anywhere in the world.

What you’ll need to watch the final

So, the game will air on the BT Sport YouTube channel, but it’s only available for residents in the UK.

If you happen to live outside the UK, you’ll get the nasty message that the video is ‘not available in your region’.

In order to solve this problem, you need to subscribe to a VPN like ExpressVPN to unblock it.

First of all, a VPN is a totally legal service, and its primary goal is to protect your privacy online concealing your exact location and disguising it as if you’re somewhere else.

By doing this, it allows you to access online content like streaming live events that you would otherwise see a block on in your region.

Among the myriad of options that exist in the market, besides ExpressVPN, NordVPN and IPVanish are very good alternatives as well.

Arsenal or Chelsea who will win?

In a historic match where two teams from the same city will be fighting for the trophy, Arsenal and Chelsea will be defining the Europa League this year.

Predictions and preferences are on Arsenal’s side. Their last performance was better than Chelsea, and also winning this final will secure them a place in the Champions League next season which is a strong push for them to perform well.

Drawing of golden football cup

After all, Chelsea has already secured their spot after finishing 3rd in the Premier League.

Arsenal had a somewhat disappointing season that left them in the fifth place in the Premier League and many fans are disappointed not to have finished higher.

Both sets of fans will certainly be hoping their London team comes out victorious.

How did they get to the final?

Arsenal saw off Italian side Napoli in the Quarter-Finals of the Europa League while Chelsea saw off Czech side Slavia Prague to progress.

The two legs of the Semi-Finals saw Arsenal convincingly beat Valencia 3-1 at home and then 4-2 away.

Chelsea had somewhat of a more challenging run facing Eintracht Frankfurt drawing both 1-1 away and then at home.

The game went to penalties which Chelsea just pipped 4-3.

Summary

The Europa League final is going to be on May 29th between Arsenal and Chelsea. The first time two teams from the same city face each other in such an event.

An all English team final.

If you live in the UK you can watch it for free at the BT Sport YouTube channel, but if you live in any other country, you’ll need a VPN in order to watch it.
