Wembley to host 2011 Champions League final
NYON, Switzerland // Wembley Stadium has been chosen to stage the 2011 Champions League final, with Bayern Munich's Allianz Arena hosting in 2012. It will be a record sixth time that England's national stadium is hosting Europe's most prestigious club football match. Wembley holds 90,000 spectators since spending nearly £800 million on the rebuilding of the London stadium was finished in 2007. The 66,000-capacity Allianz Arena in Munich will host the final for the first time.
Bayern's former Olympic Stadium home staged the match three times. Uefa has also chosen Lansdowne Road in Dublin to host the 2011 final of the rebranded Uefa Europa League. The National Stadium in Bucharest will host the match in 2012, the first time Romania has staged a European club final. *AP
