Uefa apologises after Rangers fans left without water at Europa final

Rangers supporters were left without water during the Europa League final in Seville on Wednesday, and Uefa has apologized.

According to the governing body, food and drink outlets at the Sanchez Pizjuan stadium were unable to fulfill "exceptional demand" from spectators in attendance.

The statement read: “Even though the quantity of food and beverages planned by concessionaires was much bigger than what is usually served during a domestic sold-out match at the Sanchez Pizjuan stadium, it still was not enough to meet the extraordinary demand of the day and Uefa wishes to sincerely apologize to fans for the inconvenience created.”

Around 20,000 Rangers supporters attended the final in the Spanish capital, with many sipping water from lavatory taps as the temperature inside the stadium rose.

After 90 minutes and extra-time failed to separate the sides in Seville, the Ibrox side lost the Europa League final 5-4 on penalties against Eintracht Frankfurt.
