Wanda Metropolitano Selected As 2019 Champions League Final Venue
Days after opening its gates to the fans, Atletico Madrid’s Estadio Wanda Metropolitano has been picked by UEFA to host the Champions League final in 2019.
The new Rojiblancos home ground has been elected over the National Stadium of Baku, which will instead be the venue of the same year’s Europa League final.
Announced on Wednesday, the European governing body has decided in favour of the Spanish stadium in their Executive Committee meeting on Wednesday afternoon in Nyon.
The Wanda Metropolitano will be the fourth Spanish venue to host a continental football final, after Estadio Santiago Bernabeu (1957, 1969, 1980 and 2010), Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan (1986) and Camp Nou (1989 and 1999).
