UEFA has revealed Wembley has been chosen as the venue for the Champions League final in 2023.

UEFA has announced three host cities, with St Petersburg awarded the 2021 final and Munich the 2022 showpiece.
Wembley has hosted the final of Europe’s premier club competition seven times.
The old stadium hosted European Cup finals in 1963, 1968, 1971, 1978 and 1992, with the modernised venue also staging the 2011 final, which saw Barcelona defeat Manchester United 3-1.
The famous arena has also been chosen to host next summer’s Euro 2020 semi-finals and final, with the tournament set to be played out at various venues across Europe.
Sevilla’s Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium will host the 2021 Europa League final
UEFA have also confirmed that the 2021 Europa League final will be staged at Sevilla’s Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium.
Sevilla’s ground is a fitting venue given the club’s rich history in the competition, with the club winning it on five previous occasions.
UEFA added that VAR will be used from the beginning of the knockout stages in this season’s Europa League competition.
The executive committee, meanwhile, will recommend to its 55 national associations and all European clubs not to play matches in countries where women have restricted access to stadiums.
UEFA said its third club competition, starting in 2021 with a view to giving ‘more clubs in more countries a chance to participate in European football’, will be called the Europa Conference League.
