Europa League final to be held after domestic season from 2019

(Reuters) - The Europa League final will be played after the end of the domestic season from 2019 after UEFA approved a plan to hold the last game of the continent's second-tier club competition in the same week as the Champions League final.

As a result, the final of the 2018-19 Europa League will be held on May 29, 2019, the governing body's Executive Committee said in a statement on Wednesday.
