The competition prize also includes a a full personalised adidas team kit, adidas football boots of their choice, complimentary flights, hotel and match tickets.

Speaking about the campaign, Henrik Larssson said: “It’s always nice to create these opportunities for football fans to experience. The Europa League final is an amazing night, I have fond memories of my own experience in Seville [with Celtic in 2003]. Although the result wasn’t what we hoped it would be, it was an incredible atmosphere and a dramatic night. I look forward to coaching the winning fans to victory in Stockholm.”

Freddie Ljungberg added: “You can’t beat the drama of a European final, and the Stockholm Showdown gives fans the chance to show their skills on the same pitch as the Europa League finalists. What could be better than watching the final, then getting your boots on in the same dressing room the next day and walking out onto the same pitch?  It’s a great idea from UEFA, and a competition I’m proud to be involved in.”

Enter the Stockholm Showdown now for your chance to watch the UEFA Europa League final and then play on the very same pitch the next day!
