The 2020/21 Champions League final is the glamour date in the footballing calendar and it will take place this year in Istanbul, Turkey.
When and where is the 2021 UCL Champions League final
The match will take place at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul on May 29, 2021. The venue was down to host 2020 final until that was postponed by the coronavirus pandemic.
This will be the second time the Champions League final will be hosted in Istanbul after Liverpool‘s famous comeback victory over AC Milan in 2005, held at the same ground.
The Ataturk Olympic Stadium also hosted the 2019 UEFA Super Cup final between Liverpool and Chelsea, which also went to penalties, with the Reds prevailing.
The Olympic Stadium, which underwent renovations in 2020, now has a capacity 75,000, though it is not expected to be full for the 2021 final.
