At the meeting of the UEFA Executive Committee in Ljubljana on Tuesday, September 24, the locations of finals of the most prestigious UEFA Champions League football tournament from 2021 to 2023 were announced, UEFA reported.
In 2021, the final will take place in St. Petersburg at Gazprom Arena; in 2022 - in Munich at the Arena Munich; and in 2023 in London at Wembley Stadium.
"The finale of this draw will be held in Istanbul at Ataturk Olympic Stadium. For Turkey, this is the first Champions League final since 2005, when Liverpool got the win over Milan in a dramatic fashion," - the report says.
