Gothenburg to stage 2021 Women's Champions League final

Baku, May 30, AZERTAC

Gamla Ullevi, Gothenburg has been picked as the venue for the 2021 UEFA Women's Champions League final in May of that year – which will mark the 400th anniversary of the Swedish city's founding, official website of UEFA reports.

The UEFA Executive Committee made the decision at their meeting in Baku. The UEFA Women's Champions League final has been played as a one-off game since 2010, and for 2019 moved to a separate city to the men's UEFA Champions League decider, with Lyon having faced Barcelona in Budapest, and the 2020 final is at Viola Park in Vienna.

A short distance from the Ullevi stadium, which staged several UEFA and European Cup Winners' Cup final, Gamla Ullevi opened in 2009, replacing another arena of the same name. It was the venue for four games at UEFA Women's EURO 2013, including the opening match and a semi-final, as well as four 2009 UEFA European Under-21 Championship fixtures. Gamla Ullevi is the regular home of the Sweden women's national team as well as clubs GAIS, IFK Göteborg and Örgryte.
