Wembley to host 2023 Champions League final

Wembley Stadium will host the Champions League final, European football’s showpiece event, in the summer of 2023.

The event will be the first European final the famous stadium has held since putting on fantastic displays and welcoming fans in 2011 and 2013.

2011’s final saw Manchester United lose to Pep Guardiola’s Barcelona 3-1, a side who, at the time, were considered simply the greatest team in the world, or perhaps the best ever.

Liverpool’s current boss, Jurgen Klopp, got his first taste of European finals when he faced Bayern Munich as manager of rivals Borussia Dortmund, but unfortunately that clashed ended in a 2-1 defeat for the German manager in an all-German final.

Wembley will now host the final for the first time since that night, but before they can there will be two other cities in line to host the grand finale of Europe’s biggest football competition.

St. Petersburg and Munich will be hosting the finals as well, in the years 2021 and 2022, with Istanbul already in line to lead this year’s competition.
