AS Roma meet Feyenoord in the 2022 UEFA Europa Conference League Final at Air Albania Stadium in Tirana on Wednesday 25 May (25/5/2022) at 3pm ET.
The game will be broadcast on TUDN in the United States, but the live English-language broadcast will be exclusive to the Paramount+ streaming service.
One of these teams will win the first-ever UEFA Europa Conference League league title as it marks the climax of the competition’s inaugural season. The title also guarantees the winner a place in the following UEFA Europa League, but both teams have already qualified for that league due to their placement in the domestic league.
Feyenoord eliminated Marseille after a 0-0 draw earlier in the month with a 3-2 aggregate score. Roma secured a 1-0 win after their first-leg draw to eliminate Leicester City and advance. Feyenoord are unbeaten in the competition so far.

Preview from The Associated Press
PARIS (AP) — In a season where football violence has made an ugly comeback, a potential threat hangs over Wednesday’s Europa Conference League final between Dutch club Feyenoord and Italy’s Roma in the Albanian capital of Tirana.
Up to 100,000 fans are expected to travel, although each club has been allocated just 4,000 tickets for the opening final of the third-tier European tournament, which should give smaller clubs a shot at continental competition.
Feyenoord and Roma are traditional clubs with large fan bases and notoriously violent elements among their supporters.
The final is set to be played just days after a weekend of violence at games that capped a season-long resurgence of it.
Fighting and tear gas marred Saturday’s Greek Cup final when a player was reportedly hit by a lump of cement thrown from the crowd in Panathinaikos’ 1-0 win over PAOK Thessaloniki.
In Croatia, later on Saturday, clashes erupted between police and Hajduk Split fans on a major highway. Violence escalated when a convoy of more than 260 cars and buses transported Hajduk Split fans under police escort after their team lost 3-1 to Dinamo Zagreb. Split’s Torcida Ultras previously clashed with bitter rivals from Zagreb’s Bad Blue Boys group.
On Sunday, Manchester City apologized for an attack on Aston Villa goalkeeper Robin Olsen during a field invasion by City fans celebrating the club’s Premier League title.
Elsewhere, supporters of Italian clubs La Spezia and Napoli fought with sticks in the stadium and then took to the streets, and in Bosnia and Herzegovina some Rudar Prijedor fans attacked their own players after a 5-2 defeat.
Violence has escalated, perhaps due to frustration released after lockdown restrictions imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic ended.
Feyenoord hooligans were reportedly among those who clashed violently with police in Rotterdam during a riot in November against coronavirus restrictions.
There have been numerous pitch invasions and stadium battles in countries like Switzerland, the Netherlands and Slovakia.
Last September, the Europa League game between Marseille and Turkish club Galatasaray was suspended after rival fans threw torches and firecrackers at each other. Rival fans fought after full-time at the Stade Velodrome and Marseille fans then clashed with police outside.
In January, England Football Police chief Mark Roberts said arrests in the top five English leagues were the highest in years. An alarming increase in recent pitch invasions culminated in a Premier League manager kicking a fan when he was goaded trying to cross the pitch.
In February, Greek authorities promised tougher rules on supporters’ associations after a fatal attack on a 19-year-old man who was assaulted by a youth gang in Thessaloniki.
Two months later, PAOK played in Marseille, where local fans faced off against PAOK’s Ultras in front of their hotel on the eve of the game. PAOK supporters violently clashed with riot police, and rival fans threw projectiles and flares at each other throughout the game.
Further disorder ensued three weeks ago when hundreds of Feyenoord supporters were involved in wild brawls with their Marseille counterparts ahead of the second leg of their semi-final game.
Marseille supporters even praised Feyenoord on a Twitter forum for arriving without police protection, and one of Feyenoord’s hooligan groups described the events with wacky humour.
“Two fantastic days and nights in Marseille,” read the post. “Attacks are to be expected on many street corners. A highly recommended city for a good day away.”
Many Feyenoord fans arrived in Marseille without tickets for the May 5 game, making it difficult for the police. Clashes broke out in Germany that same evening in the Europa League semi-final between Eintracht Frankfurt and West Ham.
The violence often occurs the night before games when there are fewer police around and then continues when more fans arrive. Shocking scenes erupted in downtown Seville on May 18 as Frankfurt took on Scottish club Rangers.
Several hundred Frankfurt fans attacked a few dozen Rangers supporters in front of a bar.
