AS Roma are set to reward their loyal fans by giving away all of their ticket allocation for the Europa Conference League final for free.
That gave Jose Mourinho’s side a 2-1 aggregate win and made the Portuguese coach incredibly emotional in the process.
Now, the club’s official Twitter has announced that all allotted tickets will be divvied out to season ticket holders and given away for nothing.

The AS Roma English Twitter account said: “The club's allocation of tickets for the final will be distributed among season ticket holders - with that process to take place in the coming days.
“All tickets will be free.”
The club also later said that all 166 hardy souls who followed their team to Norway for the 6-1 defeat against FK Bodo Glimt in the group stages will be given a ticket for the final.
A statement said: "The club decided to thank the 166 season ticket holders present at the 21 October match in the guest sector of the Aspmyra Stadion in Bodo by granting them - free of charge - a ticket to the final,"
The final will take place on May 22 at the Arena Kombetare in the Albania capital, Tirana.
There, Mourinho and Roma will face Dutch giants Feyenoord.
After the match last night, Mourinho gave special tribute to the fans who supported the team vociferously all night.
He said: "We weren’t even on the pitch, and we heard them. The win was for them and my team. Hopefully we can go all the way.”
Explaining why he became so emotional, the Special One continued: "Why did I shed a tear? Because I feel what they all feel,
"It’s a giant club without a trophy room for the social importance of this club. I know what it means to these people and my emotion was for them.
"I’ve been lucky enough to be in more prestigious finals, but this made me feel very special. We have a sense of family.
"With age you become less selfish and more of a father or even a grandfather to some of them, I’m very happy for all of them.
“Rome is a red and yellow city; we’ll see the joy over the coming days. I’ve made a small contribution to that."
If Roma are successful, it will be the club’s first major trophy since the Coppa Italia in 2008 and it makes Mourinho the first manager to take four separate teams to four European finals.
They’ll find tough opposition in Feyenoord though, as the Eredivisie side ground out a 0-0 away draw against Marseille to progress 3-2 on aggregate.
