Estadio da Luz to host 2014 Champions League final
UEFA have chosen the Estadio da Luz in Lisbon as the venue for the 2014 Champions League final.
Benfica's home ground will host the showpiece match, while European football's governing body confirmed the 2014 Europa League final will be played at the Juventus Stadium in Turin.
The Estadio da Luz hosted the final of Euro 2004, where Greece triumphed over tournament hosts Portugal. The city last hosted a European Cup final in 1967, when Celtic beat Inter Milan at the National Stadium.
The new Juventus Stadium was inaugurated at the start of the current campaign and is built on the site of the club's former Stadio delle Alpi home.
The Allianz Arena in Munich will host this season's Champions League final having also staged games during the 2006 World Cup, including the opening match between Germany and Costa Rica. Bucharest's new National Arena, which officially opened in September last year, will host the 2012 Europa League final.
Wembley will host the 2013 Champions League final, having also been the venue for last year's final between Barcelona and Manchester United.
In other decisions ratified by UEFA's executive committee on the first day of the governing body's Congress in Istanbul today, the Czech Republic was chosen to host the 2015 European Under-21 Championship while England will stage the 2014 European Under-17 Women's Championship.
