Wembley to host 2011 Champions League Final

Wembley Stadium will host the 2011 Champions League Final it was announced this afternoon. UEFA chose the London venue ahead of the Allianz Arena in Munich and the Olympiastadion in Berlin.

While Old Trafford played host to the Champions League Final back in 2003 the last time a European Cup final was held in London was way back in 1993 when Barcelona beat Sampdoria.

The decision to hand the Champions League Final to Wembley means that Arsenal's Emirates stadium failed in its bid to host the UEFA Cup which will now be held in Dublin at the revamped Landsdowne Road. Check out Barcelona beating Sampdoria at Wembley below.
