2024 Champions League final: All you need to know | UEFA Champions League

This is the 69th season of Europe’s elite club competition and the 32nd since it was renamed the UEFA Champions League.

Where is the Champions League final?

The highlight of European football’s club calendar returns to the London venue for a record eighth time, and the third in the UEFA Champions League era following the 2011 and 2013 finals.

Wembley has undergone a massive transformation since it hosted the last old-style European Champion Clubs’ Cup final in 1992, the famous twin towers arena making way for a new venue symbolized by the gigantic arch. Boasting a seated capacity of around 90,000, the new Wembley reopened its doors in 2007 and is once again home to the England national side, as well as host to the nation’s premier domestic cup finals.

Wembley Stadium also hosted all three of England’s Group D games at UEFA EURO 2020, as well as two round of 16 matches, both semi-finals and the final itself, with the hosts only denied their maiden triumph in the competition on penalties against Italy. The outcome was more successful for England at UEFA Women’s EURO 2022, as the Lionesses overcame Germany 2-1 after extra time to become European champions for the first time.
