Munich, St Petersburg Strong Candidates to Host 2021 Champions League Final

Champions League

JAKARTA, NNC – The 2021 Champions League Final is still in three years to go. However, UEFA has announced two strong candidates which will host the final match between elite clubs in the blue continent.

The two cities are Munich in Germany and St. Petersburg in Russia. As reported on the official website of European football agency UEFA on Thursday (11/1/2018), UEFA said the German and Russian football federations had sent their declaration of interest to hold the match.

For information, up to the deadline specified on Friday last week, only the two federations registered. "Vienna, Tbilisi and Seville had expressed interest in hosting the Europa League final in the same year, while Prague and Gothenburg were candidates for the women's Champions League final," UEFA said.

UEFA says the declaration of interest is not binding and formal proposals must be provided with complete files by February 15, 2019.

It is currently impossible for football federations that have not expressed interest in bidding to host the final matches, UEFA added. After receiving the files and all proposals, UEFA's executive committee will determine who has the right to host in the next May or June between Munich and St. Petersburg.
