LISBON TO HOST CHAMPIONS LEAGUE FINAL 2014

UEFA has revealed the stadiums that will host the 2014 Champions League final and the Europa League final 2014.

Lisbon's Estadio da Luz will host UEFA's premier club tournament an executive committee said on Tuesday. The prestigious game will return to the Portuguese capital for the first time since the final of the old European Cup in 1967, when Celtic beat Inter Milan.

Turin will host that season's Europa League final at the newly built Juventus Stadium which opened at the start of this season.  It will be the first time Italy has hosted a one-off final in the UEFA Europa League or its predecessor, the UEFA Cup.

It was also announced that the 2015 European under-21 championship will be staged in the Czech Republic.
