The 2021/22 UEFA Champions League final game will be played on 28 May 2022 at the famous Saint Petersburg Stadium in Russia.
The stadium, home to Russian side FC Zenit, was originally slated to stage the 2021 decider, but a UEFA Executive Committee changed the venue on 17 June 2020 partly because of travel restrictions as a result of the Coronavirus.
During the meeting, venues for the next two Champions League finals were decided;
- 2023: Football Arena Munich, Munich, Germany
- 2024: Wembley Stadium, London, England
St. Petersburg was built to stage games at the 2018 FIFA World Cup and stands a few hundred metres from the Gulf of Finland, which held football matches at the 1980 Summer Olympics.
Meanwhile, Seville’s Ramón Sánchez-Pizjuán Stadium will stage the final of the 2021/22 UEFA Europa League, with the match is scheduled for 18 May 2022.
The home of Sevilla FC was originally slated to stage the 2021 decider, but that was changed following a decision to hold the latter stages of the competition in Germany.
The decider was eventually played at the Gdańsk Stadium in Poland.
Sevilla have won the competition a record six times; twice as the UEFA Cup and four more times in the UEFA Europa League era, with the most recent being 2019/20.
