In a statement today, UAEFA said the final will be played in Al Ain City, on May 16, at Hazza Bin Zayed Stadium.

The match may be attended only by those vaccinated during the COVID- 19 vaccine clinical trials provided that they present a negative PCR test result and show the status of gold star or 'E' on ALHOSN UAE app, to be permitted to enter. The test must be done in the last 48 hours ahead of the match.
