Both cities are the only candidates to host the 2020-2021 Final match, but the Russian city might be the chosen one.

UEFA is set to choose in September which city will host the 2010-2021 Champions League Final.

This year the match was at Wanda Metropolitano stadium in Madrid, Spain.

And for the 2019-2020 season, the Final will be played at Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istambul, Turkey.

Two cities are competing to host the 2020-2021 Final: Munich in Germany, and Saint Petersburg in Russia.

But the Russian might have the upper hand, as the Allianz Arena recently hosted the competition’s Final in 2011-2012.

“St. Petersburg has an excellent application that has every chance of winning, it’s a beautiful city, with a new arena that hosted World Cup matches where everything was perfectly organized,” UEFA Events CEO Martin Kallen told the FC Zenit official website.

“Its rival, Munich, also has a beautiful stadium, it is new, but not as new as the arena in St. Petersburg.”

“Both applications are very strong and it will be interesting to see which of them will eventually win the right to host the final,” he concluded.
