AP sources: St Petersburg, Munich, Wembley set for CL finals

MONACO (AP) — Two people with knowledge of the process say UEFA is putting forth St. Petersburg, Munich and Wembley as venues for a trio of Champions League finals.

They spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to discuss UEFA’s plans ahead of expected confirmation at a Sept. 24 executive committee meeting.

Russia and Germany had both been vying to host the final at the end of the 2020-21 season. But the 68,000-capacity home of Zenit St. Petersburg is now due to get that event, with UEFA giving the 75,000-seat Allianz Arena in Munich, which staged the 2012 final, another shot in 2022.

The 90,000-capacity Wembley is due to host the 2023 final to mark the centenary year of the original stadium first opening on the north London site.
