Ahead of Man Utd v Ajax free live streaming, here's some match facts and stats courtesy of UEFA.
The game is taking place 22 years to the day since Ajax claimed their last major European trophy, overcoming AC Milan 1-0 in the 1995 UEFA Champions League final.
This is Ajax's 15th UEFA final (W10 L4), and their first since they lost on penalties to Juventus in the 1996 UEFA Champions League final.
This is United's 12th UEFA final (W6 L5). They have lost their last three: the 2008 UEFA Super Cup – 1-2 v Zenit, the 2009 UEFA Champions League – 0-2 v Barcelona, and the 2011 UEFA Champions League – 1-3 v Barcelona. Their most recent final victory came on penalties against Chelsea in the 2008 UEFA Champions League decider.
United have not won an international club final inside 90 minutes since they beat Palmeiras 1-0 in Tokyo in the European/South American Cup in November 1999, Roy Keane the scorer.
United are looking to join Ajax, Bayern, Chelsea and Juventus in completing a full set of major UEFA club trophies (UEFA Champions League, UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, UEFA Cup/UEFA Europa League) with victory in Stockholm.
Should they win, Ajax will complete a unique set of trophy successes, as the only side to have lifted the major UEFA competitions in both of their forms. They have won Europe's top prize as the European Cup (1971, 1972 and 1973) and the UEFA Champions League (1995), and won the UEFA Cup in 1992. Porto are the only team to have won both the UEFA Cup (2003)/UEFA Europa League (2011) and the European Cup (1987)/UEFA Champions League (2004), but they never won the Cup Winners' Cup.
United and Ajax are both appearing in their first UEFA Europa League final; they are the 11th and 12th clubs to reach this stage, and the victors at the Friends Arena will be the fifth side to win the competition – after Sevilla (three titles), Atlético Madrid (two), Porto and Chelsea (one each).
United are the fourth English club, after Fulham, Chelsea and Liverpool, to reach the final since the UEFA Europa League replaced the UEFA Cup, which is the most for any nation. There have been three finalists each from Spain and Portugal.
Ajax are the first Dutch club to reach the UEFA Europa League final, making the Netherlands just the fifth different nation to be represented in the fixture.

United's only previous UEFA fixture in Sweden ended in a 3-1 defeat at IFK Göteborg in the 1994/95 UEFA Champions League group stage. Jesper Blomqvist, who scored for IFK that night, later featured for United in their 1999 UEFA Champions League final success.
