The UEFA Europa League Final 2018 is about to take place and in this guide I’m going to show you how you can watch the final live from any country in the world without the need for a cable subscription.
Marseille will face Athletico Madrid in this years final and if you want to watch the match your options can be extremely limited. The final is reserved to cable networks in most countries and if you don’t have a subscription then you can be left without a reliable way to watch.
Below I’m going to show you how you can watch on a completely free and official stream. When searching for a way to watch the final then you’re bombarded with thousands of links for sketchy streams that are not only illegal to watch but also put the safety and security of your device at risk.
Watch the Europa League Final 2018 without cable
The Europa League final in most countries is on expensive cable networks but in a select few countries, the entire match is being shown live for free.
In India, for example, the match can be watched online on the official website SonyLiv. If you try to watch SonyLiv outside India then you’ll be blocked because you’re not from the correct country.
You can unblock this live stream by using an app called a VPN. A VPN will allow you to pretend you are in India so instead of being blocked from watching the Europa League Final 2018, you’ll be able to watch live and from any country in the world.
A VPN will cost you a couple of US Dollars (or pounds) but you can use it for watching other matches like the Champions League Final too.

When is the Europa League Final 2018 shown
The Europa League Final 2018 takes place on Wednesday, 16th May 2018.
Kick-off is expected to take place at 20:45 CET which is 19:45 BST (British Time). The final will take place at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais in Decines-Charpieu, Lyon, France.
Marseille will face Athletico Madrid and with the final being held in France it will be to the benefit of French side, Marseille.
Athletico saw off Arsenal which was no small feat as the team were fighting to give Arsene Wenger the send off he deserved in his final season in charge of the London club.
Marseille will certainly be the underdogs for the final, however, Athletico won’t want to write them off too soon after they overcame a scare in their second leg semi-final against RB Salzburg.
The match will be overseen by 45-year old referee Björn Kuipers who will be tasked with taking charge of his second Europa League Final.
Whatever the result it’s expected to be an exciting final and one you won’t want to miss. Make sure you’ve got your VPN ready to watch all the action live.
