On 24 May, Germany’s Wolfsburg will face France’s Olympique Lyonnais for the Women’s Champions League Final at the Valeriy Lobanovsky Dynamo stadium.
On the road to the final, the French team defeated Manchester City, while the Germans beat another English side, Chelsea.
Olympique Lyonnais is among the most acclaimed women’s teams in Europe. Having won last year’s tournament, the French ladies have won their fourth trophy of the kind, while having lost another two in the finals. Wolfsburg, on the other hand, has played in the Champions League final three times, winning twice in those games.
It is not the first time the teams will face each other in the most important game of the European women’s football. In 2013, Wolfsburg defeated Lyon by 1 goal to 0, whereas three years later, the outcome was decided in a penalty series, where the French side was victorious.
The Dynamo Stadium is named after Valeriy Lobanovsky, the legendary player and head coach for Dynamo Kyiv. The venue is a multi-functional stadium located in Ukraine's capital Kyiv, and is modified for football use only. The arena is the home of Dynamo Kyiv Football Club and a major alternative venue for the Ukrainian national football team to host friendly and exhibition games. Originally built in 1934, the stadium is currently capable of seating some 16,873 spectators.
