WEMBLEY will host the 2023 Champions League – marking 100 years since the original Twin Towers opened.
Uefa tonight confirmed English football’s showpiece venue is being handed European football’s top club game for the first time since 2013.
With Instabul’s Ataturk Stadium hosting this year’s final, Uefa announced Zenit’s Saint Petersburg will hold the 2021 clash and Bayern Munich’s Allianz Stadium the 2022 finale.
The old Wembley staged five finals and the new stadium has twice hosted it after opening in 2007.
Barcelona beat Manchester United 3-1 in 2011, despite Wayne Rooney’s goal.
And two years later Arjen Robben’s 89th minute goal gave Bayern a 2-1 triumph over German rivals Borussia Dortmund, who were managed by now-Liverpool chief Jurgen Klopp.
Wembley is already scheduled to stage the Euro 2020 semi-finals and final.
Uefa’s executive committee meeting also announced the Europa League will use VAR this season from the knockout stages.
And Europe’s third club competition – starting in 2021 – will be called the Europa Conference League.
Uefa’s aim is giving “more clubs in more countries a chance to participate in European football”.
Europe’s governing body also revealed it will urge all its clubs and 55 national associations not to play in countries where women are denied normal access to stadiums.
