The 2015 UEFA Europa League Final will be the final match of the 2014–15 UEFA Europa League, the 44th season of Europe's secondary club football tournament organised by UEFA, and the sixth season since it was renamed from the UEFA Cup to the UEFA Europa League. It will be played at the Stadion Narodowy in Warsaw, Poland on 27 May 2015.[1]

The winners will earn the right to play against the winners of the 2014–15 UEFA Champions League in the 2015 UEFA Super Cup. They will also, for the first time, qualify to enter at least the play-off round of the 2015–16 UEFA Champions League, and will enter the group stage if the berth reserved for the Champions League title holders is not used.[2]
