FOOTBALL- European football governing body UEFA has announced venues for the next three Champions League finals.
At the UEFA Executive Committee meeting in the Slovenian capital Ljubljana on Tuesday, Russia’s Saint Petersburg was announced as venue for 2021 final while Munich was awarded the 2022 showpiece and the 2023 final is given to Wembley.
Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin said, “The chosen venues have proper mobility, hotels and everything else. Where we have a problem, and probably will have a problem anywhere, is that sometimes hotels take advantage of the fact the Champions League final is in a certain city.”
He said he can’t influence or control hotel room prices but would do his best to increase ticket allocations for supporters.
This season’s final will be played in Istanbul.
