Six cities that every Sevilla fan would like to know

Sevilla have won the Europa League six times. And surely every Sevilla fan would like to know the six cities in which his team conquered Europe.

The Seville Soccer Club won for the sixth time Europe League, the second most important football competition at European club level. The Andalusian team is the one that has won this competition the most times and has done so in six different European cities, with their six respective stadiums.

Forgive the Betis, but now we are going to review those six cities that all sevillistas would like to know. A most interesting route through Europe.

Eindhoven

In 2006, Sevilla traveled to Eindhoven to play, and beat English Middlesbrough, their first European final. Eindhoven, in the Netherlands, is the fifth city of the country and is mainly known for being Phillips company headquarters. In fact, the fact that this company was born here was essential for the development of Eindhoven, from town to city. As it was almost destroyed in the Second World War, it is a city with very modern architecture that will surprise you.

glasgow

The following year, 2007, the second title came for Sevilla, this time conquered in glasgowspecifically in the stadium Hampden Park, home of the Scottish football team. Glasgow needs little introduction on a tourist level, as it is the city Scotland’s largest and the third largest in the UK. It is a city with an enormous cultural and especially musical life, and with monuments such as the Cathedral or the Universityin addition to many museums.

Turin

The third European title for the Andalusian team came in 2014, playing the final in the new stadium in the city of Turin, Juventus Stadium. Known as the Cradle of Italy, the city of Turin is one of the most important in the country at all levels. As for tourism, you have to visit Turin so as not to miss the Royal Palacethe Egyptian Museum which is one of the most important in terms of antiquities, and Cathedralwhere the relic of the Holy Shroud is also kept.

warsaw

Again, it took a year for them to repeat their success in Seville, this time beating FC Dnipro in the Warsaw National Stadiuma modern field built for the Euro 2012. Warsaw is the city largest in poland and also the capital of the country, in addition to always being considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world despite suffering much from the ravages of World War II. Its entire historic center was declared in 1980 as World Heritage.

Basel is the cultural capital of Switzerland

And for the third consecutive year, in 2016, the sevilistas conquered Europe, this time putting the pike in the St. Jakob Park stadium, in basel. Located right on the Swiss border with Germany and France, Basel is the third city in terms of population in the Swiss country and is considered the cultural capitalthanks to having the oldest university in Switzerland and a large number of museums. To highlight the Art Museum, which was the first collection that was opened to public visits in all of Europe, back in the 17th century.

Cologne

The last title to date came in Cologne. The final was scheduled to be played in Gdansk, Poland, but due to the coronavirus, the final phase of the tournament was played in Germany and the title match at the Rhein Energie stadium in the city of Cologne. On the banks of the Rhine, the fourth city largest in all of Germany is a very touristic city, especially thanks to its Cathedrala temple that is World Heritage and that keeps the reliquary of the Three Wise Men.
