The Gunners demanded an explanation from European football's governing body over the decision to hold the final in the capital of Azerbaijan after being allocated just 6,000 tickets for the all-Premier League clash with Chelsea.

By comparison, Liverpool and Tottenham have each been given over 16,000 tickets for the Champions League final in the Wanda Metropolitano, a stadium with 700 fewer seats.

And there's a good chance the Arsenal and Chelsea sections will be rather empty after the Evening Standard reported that both clubs are struggling to sell tickets.

Previously, the airport has an experience of conducting major global, including sporting events, such as the First European Games, Formula 1, Islamic Solidarity Games, etc.

When contacted by Press Association Sport on Friday, Arsenal and Chelsea did not want to comment on the letter from UEFA. 'Our experts are keenly working on this matter with a view to help find cheaper solutions for travelling fans.

"Everyone at Arsenal is delighted to have reached the UEFA Europa League final and we are all very much looking forward to the match against Chelsea on Wednesday, May 29", Arsenal said in a statement on Thursday. "I believe that next time when we will host such an event, never such a question will appear, because I believe that everybody getting acquainted with our handsome city, with our hospitality, will be happy to be back again".

"The bidding process for a club competition final is generally held a couple of years in advance, meaning that the exact circumstances in which the final will have to be organised can not be known at the time of the appointment", UEFA said. "We would welcome a joint effort with your club in this respect", the statement read. This has added significant difficulties to the event logistics.

Uefa admitted they kept ticket allocations low as they were unable to guarantee Baku's Heydar Aliyev airport could cope with over 15,000 passengers in a day. "I don't understand what the solution is".

"Even before Arsenal qualified for the final, we received a request from UEFA to provide the guarantees, our state authorities provided all the necessary security arrangements for Mkhitaryan to travel to Baku".

Arsenal coach Unai Emery has said: "I don't know what the problem is between the two countries but we are going to do all we can to have Mkhitaryan there".
