Last years UEFA Cup holders St Petersburg Zenit returned on Thursday the trophy to UEFA President Michel Platini at a ceremony held in Istanbul ahead of this year's final game.
"I have seen a great enthusiasm here and I believe it would be fantastic final," Platini told the ceremony.
Istanbul's Sukru Saracoglu Stadium is set to host the final match, which is scheduled for May 20.
Platini handed over to Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topbas the trophy which is set to stay in the city for display until the final game.
"I am very excited. This is the greatest chance that a mayor could ever get," Topbas told reporters.
