Lisbon to stage Champions League

It has been confirmed that the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League quarter-finals, semi-finals and final will be played as a straight knockout tournament with the games being split between Benfica’s Estádio da Luz (which will host the final) and Sporting´s Estádio José Alvalade.

A decision is pending on whether the remaining ´round of 16‘ second legs will take place at the home team’s stadium or in Portugal at the Estádio do Dragão in Porto and the Estádio D. Afonso Henriques in Guimarães.
The Champions League has been on hold since the 11 March due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 7/8 August - Round of 16 second legs (venues to be confirmed); 12/15 August - Quarter-finals; 18/19 August - Semi-finals and the 23 August will see the Final at the Estádio da Luz. The quarter-final and semi-final draws will take place in Nyon on the 10 July.
The 2019/20 final was due to be held at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul which will now instead stage the 2020/21 showpiece. The three subsequent final venues have also agreed to host a year later than originally planned.

2022: Saint Petersburg Stadium, Saint Petersburg.
2023: Football Arena Munich, Munich.
2024: Wembley Stadium, London.
