A crowd of up to 13,000 will be able to attend the UEFA Super Cup between Chelsea and Villarreal at Windsor Park in Belfast.

Champions League winners Chelsea meet the Spanish Europa League holders on August 11, kicking off at 8pm.

Tickets sales for fans of each team will be managed by the respective clubs.

Supporters can apply for general tickets up until 3pm on August 2 – with all of those successful required to show proof of a negative PCR or lateral flow Covid-19 test on entry to the ground, where no food or drink will be sold from the kiosks on the concourse area.

Any fans coming from outside the UK will need to comply with border entry restrictions and requirements which are in force at the time of the match – with no exemptions granted to ticket holders.

Seats will be made available at prices ranging from 40 euros (£35) for ‘Category 3’ up to 120 euros (£106) for ‘Category 1’, with supporters able to apply for up to two tickets per person.

Should demand exceed the number of available tickets, a random draw will take place.

Governing body UEFA noted the attendance level “may be adjusted according to the latest decisions from the local authorities”.

As at Euro 2020, tickets can be downloaded to the official UEFA app.

Elsewhere, Andy Brassell has said that Jules Kounde to Chelsea “would suit all parties” and a deal is “very likely” this summer.

The Sevilla defender has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea over the last few weeks, while there has been speculation that both Tottenham and Man Utd were interested.

Fabrizio Romano said earlier this week that the Blues had offered Sevilla €30-35m and Kurt Zouma for Kounde, while personal terms were already in place if Chelsea were to get the green light from the Spanish side.

And now ‘talkSPORT’s European football expert’ Brassell claims that the possibility of Kounde joining the Blues “feels a bit like the Jadon Sancho deal” that saw him join Manchester United this summer.

“It’s very likely because for Sevilla, it’s part of their model to make a deal,” Brassell told talkSPORT.

“He’s been there for two years, they paid a lot for him in the first place and a lot of eyebrows were raised when they signed him for £21m.

Sevilla can get their replacement in Kurt Zouma, who Monchi – the sporting director at Sevilla – has liked for a very long time.
