Wembley to host Champions League finals until 2025
UEFA on Friday, confirmed that Wembley Stadium will host the Champions League final in 2024.
The announcement arrives less than a week after there was a severe security breach during the Euro 2020 final at the same stadium.
The stampede saw over five thousand supporters with no tickets force their way into the concourses to seat on empty seats and corridors inside the ground.
It will be the first time Wembley will host the final, after it hosted the 2013 clash between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.
Meanwhile, the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul, has been awarded the 2023 Champions League final by UEFA.
The venue had been due to stage the match in 2020 and 2021, but UEFA was forced to make changes in both years due to COVID-19.
Munich’s Allianz Arena will now host the final in 2025 instead of 2023. Next year’s final champions league game will be played in St Petersburg.
