Istanbul hosts the 2023 UEFA Champions League final instead of Munich

The finals of the Champions League season 2022/23 will be held at the Olympic Stadium in Istanbul instead of the Munich Allianz Arena. It was announced by the press service of the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA).

The locations for the final matches of the Champions League in 2022 and 2024 have not changed – Gazprom-Arena in St. Petersburg and Wembley Stadium in London, respectively. Munich hosts the final of the tournament in 2025.

The 2020/21 Champions League final was supposed to be held at the Olympic Stadium in Istanbul but was moved to Porto due to an increase in coronavirus cases. The match between Chelsea and Manchester City was won 1-0 by the London club.
