Manchester United will have fans at the Europa League final should they make the showpiece event in Gdansk.
The Red Devils are 6-2 up against Roma ahead of the second-leg later this week as they target a first piece of silverware since 2017.
Gdansk was due to hold the final last term before the pandemic saw it moved to Cologne.
But the Energa Stadium, which has a capacity of 43,615, is expected to be around 25 per cent full for the final on May 26.
It means 9,500 fans will attend after approval was granted from the country's authorities.
The two teams who reach the final will receive an allocation of 2,000 tickets each, while 2,000 have initially been made available for the general public.
United will be in the final barring an exceptional collapse against Roma.
Arsenal and Villarreal are battling it out in the other semi-final which remains in the balance.
The Polish Government said last week that from May 15 onwards, 25 per cent of a stadium's capacity can be opened up to fans.
They have recorded 2.8m cases and seen over 68,000 deaths as a result of the coronavirus.
A statement from UEFA read: "The Polish authorities have confirmed to UEFA a capacity of 25 per cent of the stadium or up to 9,500 spectators [will be present for the final].
"Supporters from abroad will have to comply with border entry restrictions and requirements that will be in force at the time of the final as no exemptions will be granted to ticket holders."
UEFA are yet to confirm whether fans will be present for the Champions League final which takes place three days after the Europa League final.
Istanbul's Atatürk Olympic Stadium was due to host the final last season before the pandemic saw it moved to Lisbon.
