Only three stadiums remain in a contest to host the 2019 Europa League final after four contenders withdrew. UEFA says the candidates are the Olympic Stadium in Baku, Azerbaijan, and the home venues of Spanish club Sevilla and Istanbul-based Besiktas.

On UEFA’s original list in February, stadiums in Glasgow, Scotland; Tbilisi, Georgia; and the German pair of Frankfurt and Stuttgart were also included.

Baku is also still in a head-to-head contest to host the 2019 Champions League final with Atletico Madrid’s new Metropolitano Stadium. Those 70,000-capacity stadiums were also announced in February.

UEFA says its executive committee will choose the hosts on Sept. 21.

Also for 2019, the Northern Irish soccer federation has put forth Windsor Park in a seven-city hosting contest for the Super Cup.
